Our Story

Hello, I'm Danielle, the heart and soul behind The
Wick & Vine. I want to take you on a fragrant journey through our story,
one that began during the lock-down of 2020 and has since blossomed into a thriving passion.

A Whiff of Inspiration

As the world slowed down in lock-down, I found myself spending a small fortune on store-bought candles and wax melts, only to be disappointed time and time again. Candles never seemed to have a strong enough scent, and wax melts lost their fragrance too quickly. I've always been in love with all things smelly - perfumes, candles, wax melts, diffusers, sprays - you name it!

Scents have this incredible power to transport you back to a feeling or a memory, and I wanted to capture that magic.

A Busy Life and a Burning Passion

During those challenging times, I needed something to keep me busy at home. I was a single parent, taking care of my one-year-old child and a loyal dog. I also worked two days a week as a Veterinary Nurse. But when I was home, I needed an outlet for my creativity. That's when I started making candles and wax melts, just for myself, friends, and family.

Wick & Vine Takes Off

To my surprise, the candles and wax melts I created started to gain popularity. So, I made a decision. On December 11, 2020, The Wick & Vine was officially launched. At that time, I was still making everything in my small kitchen, and the demand was incredible.

From Kitchen Creations to a Dedicated Workshop

As The Wick & Vine grew, so did my passion for creating scents. I expanded from my kitchen to the cellar to store my products. But I never forgot my roots. Today, I've taken over my partner's garage, and it has become my very own workshop. It's here that I meticulously blend, pour, and
package each scent-infused creation with love and care.

Expanding Our Aromatic Horizons

Starting with candles and wax melts, I ventured into reed diffusers and room sprays. They've become firm favourites since their launch, adding an extra layer of luxury and ambiance to homes.

Living the Aromatic Lifestyle

I don't just make these products; I live them. I have at least one candle lit every evening, wax melts
filling every corner, and reed diffusers enchanting the air around me. I understand how candles can
create such a cosy and relaxing atmosphere.

My Favourite Scents

While I adore every scent I create, there are a few that have a special place in my heart. Seychelles, a tropical paradise in a jar, and Black Plum & Rhubarb, a delightful blend that tantalizes the senses, are my all-year-round favourites.

At The Wick & Vine, our journey is fuelled by a passion for scent, a desire to create memorable
moments, and a commitment to quality. Every product you receive is a labour of love, from my early
kitchen experiments to my dedicated workshop. I invite you to join me in celebrating the art of scent
creation, and let The Wick & Vine ignite your senses and transport you to cherished memories
