About Yankee Candle & WoodWick
The Yankee Candle® Story
One December, a 16-year-old student was looking for gift inspiration with Christmas just around the corner. He decided to make a candle for his Mum because it would be a completely unique and personal gift.
Using everyday materials he found in the kitchen: household wax, a red crayon, string and a milk carton, he produced his very first candle. A neighbour saw the candle and offered to buy it, leaving the student with enough money to buy more materials to create more – one to gift and one to sell! That was the start of the Yankee Candle® journey…
From this point Yankee Candle® has grown in to a worldwide brand, expanding in to Europe...
Since 2006, WoodWick® Candles has provided a distinctive multi-sensory experience with a wooden wick that crackles as it burns. We deliver sophistication with distinct fragrances in stylish hourglass and ellipse shaped candles.We invite you to indulge your senses with stylish products that combine carefully chosen materials with craftsmanship.
