Our Story

Sense Candle Co. was created with the dedication and passion of Richard Burton and his desire to create an all-natural soy wax candle with exquisite fragrances that appeal to the senses. Always passionate about home decor, lighting & fragrance and enamoured with the twinkling glow of candles throughout his home, Richard set out to make candles using traditional, handmade techniques and carefully choosing all natural ingredients including premium soy wax, 100% cotton wicks, essential oils and fine fragrance oils. Over the years he has carefully studied the optimal scent to wax ratio, wick to container matching, and how to perfectly generate maximum hot and cold scent throw to provide a long lasting and appealing fragrance for your home. With six years of creations and testing under his belt, Richard has evolved his knowledge and practice in the art and science of candle making to launch a successful online business with Sense Candle Co., and the new brick and mortar retail store in Historic Downtown Cobourg, Sense Home & Garden.

Each candle is poured by hand with the utmost care and attention, finished with a traditional wax seal and creatively packaged and shipped to you for your enjoyment.
