Inspired to make candles an affordable luxury, wife and husband team Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger started handcrafting soy candles in their studio in Los Angeles. All P.F Candles (which stands for Pommes Frites by the way) are made using US grown soy wax, cotton-core wicks, and phthalate-free fragrance oils – creating the natural, and enchanting scents that we love.
From different aromas of pipe tobacco, fig and golden poppy on the first burn, the base note lays us in subtle levels of musk and sweetness that will whisk us away to the Southwest plains. We also love that each scent has a story behind them. For example, Hill Country was where Kristen & Tom met and hence the scent is earthy and sweet, a reminisce of the initial sweet budding relationship.
Popular and best selling scents include Teakwood & Tobacco (bold & masculine) and Patchouli Sweetgrass (earthy, crisp and sweet). There’s also a limited special scent – Cut Grass Special – that smells just like a freshly mowed lawn and that summer breeze.
Not only are the candles lovingly hand-poured and into small batches each time, they are also packaged into these awesome retro-glass jars with a brass lid that goes perfect on our dining tables, shelves, bathroom and adds the finishing touch to any home decor ideas.
