THE VERY GOOD STORY
We want to live a 'conscious' life: a life in which we make purposeful decisions to be aware of, and sensitive to, our surroundings. By making small changes in our everyday habits, we can begin that process.
The Very Good Candle Company is an eco-friendly and cruelty-free natural goods company, focused on non-toxic, plant-based candles.
Our rapeseed candles are all hand-poured into beautiful recycled amber glass jars in our small studio located in Amsterdam West.
Sustainability is the focus of The Very Good Candle Company so we avoid using unnecessary packaging materials. We source all our ingredients locally or within the EU to support smaller businesses and reduce our overall carbon footprint. We are glad that nothing has to travel overseas for us.
WHO WE ARE
We are a music-loving couple, Isil and Emre (for now it's just the two of us!) who moved to Amsterdam in May, 2017. Living an eco-friendly lifestyle and following our favourite music bands are our true passions - as well as looking after our two adorable, adopted cats.
My name is Isil and I am the founder and maker of The Very Good Candle Company. Having worked in marketing over the last 13 years, and upon moving to Amsterdam, some unexpected changes lead me to create something good I truly believe in, and which is %100 ethical. Candles have always been a part of my life. They remind me of fun family times. When the electricity cut out, we always used to gather around the candle light and tell each other stories, which was definitely more fun than what we tend to do now; scroll through our mobiles.
Our love for Music and the places we’ve been form the inspiration for our first scented line of candles. The scents are inspired by various music festivals and their unique locations all over the world; Coachella in the Californian desert, Glastonbury in the British rolling hills and Fuji Rock, an incredible festival held in the mountains of Japan.
We hope you enjoy our candles!
