About us

Based in Carlisle, Cumbria, the candle-making story began when brothers Ru and Aidan became frustrated at the lack of good quality candles in their area. 

Whilst studying at Sixth Form and University, they taught themselves how to make their own candles and soon began experimenting with different amazing fragrances. 

This then led to the creation of The Victorian Candle Co, a small company dedicated to hand-pouring small batches of long-lasting, beautifully designed candles.

Through social media and stocking local shops, the brothers have managed to reach thousands of customers all across the country who love their products.
