26 years of the pioneer of scented candles in our country
More than 25 years ago Jaime decided to make his dream come true to create his own firm, Candela’s; With which he makes scented candles and home air fresheners, handcrafted with natural ingredients.
It all started in 1994 after a trip to London, when when entering an antique shop on Portobello Road, the aroma of burning candles conquered the entire environment.
With limited financial resources, he traveled to France and England to investigate in depth about everything related to this exciting world, at a time when there was still no market in Spain but a long ecclesiastical tradition of church candles.
Shortly after, he opened his first shop-workshop in Barcelona, and although at first it had a modest reception, little by little and based on a lot of effort and patience, he managed to win the hearts of many customers for whom today he is a benchmark and pioneer in introduce the scented candle in our country.
In these years she has lived many endearing experiences, such as that occasion in which she recreated in a candle the scent of clean clothes from childhood that an octogenarian asked her for, or when she fulfilled the order of another client who wanted to focus the individual on a candle smell of the moment when a wave breaks on the Costa da Morte.
Today it preserves all the essence and principles of its beginnings, with a small store on Córcega street in Barcelona, and around the world from this online store, where you can also enjoy the gift of it.
