It's All in the Names
Naming candles is no easy feat. You want something memorable but you also don't want to name it anything that sounds too ridiculous!
When I started researching this business concept, I knew that I would name most of my collection after my loved ones. Several of the candles are named after my siblings and future products will be named after cousins, aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends.
Contacting them and asking how they would describe themselves if they were a candle (or, "If you were a smell, what would you be?") provided me with funny feedback and excitement. Most of the candle's aromas are fully brought to life from my siblings' mouths, whereas others needed other aromas incorporated to enhance their dream smell.
When you purchase a Melophile Candles item, you are not only supporting a Black-owned small business, but also supporting me in honoring my most important relationships. May it put a smile on your face as much as it makes them smile, too.
