A story of success
The Irish Chandler is an independent candle brand based in County Clare, Ireland.
After searching for a cleaner way to fragrance her new home in Ireland, Lisa, The Irish Chandler founder, decided to create her own scented candles. Lisa spent a long time researching and looking for the best quality waxes and fragrances, then after months of testing and experimenting with supplies she found the perfect combination of cotton core wicks and US grown soy wax (unfortunately there isn’t a great climate in Ireland to grow soy beans but the wax is supplied by an Irish based distributor). These two simple components combined with the finest quality fragrance oils produces longer burning non-toxic scented candles, that are safe to use in any home or workplace.
The Irish Chandler has steadily grown from a home grown Irish business into a recognisable brand that now produces hundreds of candles each week. Although new equipment has been introduced to cope with the large influx of sales, everything is still handmade in the Lisdoonvarna workshop, each candle is lovingly hand poured and all of the labels designed in-house are printed and then each one carefully attached to the jars by hand. The Irish Chandler consistently stocks approximately twenty stores in Ireland and other online stores in the UK and now the US. In 2019 The Irish Chandler was thrilled to attend Fareplate in New York City an Irish food and drink event where the candles were a huge hit with the guests. The Irish Chandler hopes to return to the US again in 2020 and you never know there may even be a new range introduced!
