Introducing P.F. Candle Co.
Our first experience of P.F. Candle Co. was through gifting. Like countless other birthdays or Christmases, we were given a new scent for the room. But, there was something about that flickering flame on the soy wax that really won us over and made us want to find out who these guys were.
P.F. Candle Co. (it stands for "Pommes Frites" by the way) is a handmade candle and home fragrance company based out of Los Angeles. Founded and still owner operated by wife and husband team Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger, they work alongside their small teams, including the 'Liquids Crew' and 'Candle Crew'. "We love how candles have the power to change the entire atmosphere of a room with their soft glow and fragrance." they explain, "all of our candles are made using domestically grown soy wax, cotton core wicks, fine fragrance oils, and apothecary-inspired packaging". Deliberately kept secondary to their main role as olfactory curators, the packaging is understated, indeed channeling the apothecary with a functional and classic simplicity and clean lo-fi labeling across the candles, incense, room sprays and diffusers.
Watch a film below to see the operation in full swing. Oh, and the name. They explain; "'Pommes Frites', when pronounced correctly, sounds pretty similar to Kristen's last name, "Pumphrey". Well, and Belgian fries are awesome!"
