What's unique about our candles?

How do we celebrate what’s important to you?

— We are a black-owned women-run brand, led by artistry and heritage. All our candles are handmade in the heart of Hamburg. POTC is the perfect meeting of diversity and culture with a distinct brand DNA that’s West African and German.

— Our candles are designed with you in mind – POTC candles have the most amazing scent throw — about 10 times more powerful than your standard scented candle. Our scents travel quickly through your space and is long-lasting even after the candle has been extinguished.

— You get the most value for your money. Our signature 3 wick model is larger than the average candle and our unique blend of high-grade fragrance and pure essential oils guarantees a very quick, long-lasting diffusion, without the use of preservatives in the wax. 

— We use non-toxic vegetable wax – a quality blend with coconut and rapeseed which retains fragrance extremely well without additives, is vegan, with no animal or soy derivatives. Our wax comes largely from Europe, is sustainable and free from any deforestation associations.

— We use cotton wicks, so our candles burn very clean.

— POTC candles are made from start to finish by one person, using a unique artisanal method from the French Riviera.

— Our fragrances are designed to elevate your mood and your interiors too. A POTC candle is a piece to be celebrated, proudly on show.

— Our elegant white vessels and lids are reusable. The metal lids not only preserve your candles from dust, but they can also be reused as coasters. Our jars can be reused as plant pots, to store cosmetics and stationery, or simply recycled.

– We are invested in utilising the highest quality products, from our scents down to our packaging. Everything we use is put to strict quality control tests, sometimes lasting months and even years. The end result is a product whose craftsmanship you can trust.
