The Handmade Market Spotlight: Southern Fragrances Candle Co


Mandy Phythian from Southern Fragrances Candle Co

Describe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring:
Southern Fragrances Candle Co specializes in offering high quality handcrafted soy products with a specialty in unique fragrances, natural ingredients and our signature organic wooden wicks. Our eco-friendly ingredients allow our candles to burn both cleaner and longer while offering a unique sensory experience at an affordable price. Along with our candles, we also offer a custom curated line of scrubs, bath salts and milk baths designed to compliment our candles. We pride ourselves in providing a fun and engaging shopping experience while helping our customers pick just the right gift to give or receive! A few of our best fragrances include our Tobacco & Cedar Wood and Grapefruit & Mint. We’ve also created a special fragrance just for Raleigh, NC called “City of Oaks” which is an Oaked Chardonnay scent.

In your experience, what has been your best venue for selling your work:
We really enjoy meeting new people and sharing our candle story in person with our customers. It’s interesting to hear people’s reactions to our fragrances and which ones are their favorites. Each event we attend, there’s a different favorite.

Which artist at The Handmade Market are you excited to see/meet?:
Honestly I’m excited to see everyone this season! The makers at this event are so creative and everyone has something different and unique to offer. Top of my list would have to be My Invisible Ink. I’m a sucker for cutesy little animals.


What is the best comment or compliment you have ever received for your work?
You don’t know until you try. It can be hard putting yourself out there for people to judge your work but taking that first step is the hardest.
