Fragrances in southern France or a colorful market in Marrakesh may offer inspiration, but every one of our candles is poured at the Illume factory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We couldn’t imagine them being made anywhere else. When it comes to candle making, you could call us perfectionists or a bit type-A. We are compulsive when it comes to finessing fragrance and marrying it to the ideal wax. Don’t even get us going about straightening wicks or the purity of paraffin.It’s about maintaining quality every step of the way ensuring an Illume candle burns beautifully from first light to last flicker. -Illume
At Market this January, we were captivated by Illume’s exotic fragrance combinations and dedication to crafting the best candles possible. If you’ve ever heard us wax poetic about Roundtree’s raku glazes, the masterful metalwork of Silver Seasons jewelry and table art, or the way Marc Tetro conjures a dog’s personality with a single line, then you know that we celebrate the details of fine craftsmanship at Brooke Pottery. Some might even consider us obsessed Illume chooses from a library of HUNDREDS of cotton wicks to pair with each candle wax for the cleanest possible burn. Natural scents and essential oils are blended into Illume candles with a very high fragrance load, which means an Illume candle fills a room with a generous bouquet. Yeah, that’s the kind of detail that impresses us.
Come pick out your favorite Illume candle for a little dose of luxury. As a gift, the new Illume candles are perfect for several occasions: thank you’s, hostess gift, for Mother’s day and, of course, birthdays.
