What's unique about our candles?

How do we celebrate what’s important to you?

— We are guided by artistry and integrity. 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 influenced by West Africa, Great Britain and Germany.

— Our candles are designed with you in mind – POTC candles have the most amazing scent throw — so much 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.

— Our signature 3 wick model is imposing in its thick and weighty vessel. The candle burns evenly thanks to this 3 wick configuration. 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 premium blend of coconut and rapeseed wax which retains fragrance extremely well without additives, is vegan, with no paraffin, 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 and quietly.

— 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 minimal white vessels and lids are reusable. The metal lids are designed to effortlessly snuff out your candles. They also preserve your candles from dust and can also be used to place your candles on while burning or recycled as coasters – protecting your surfaces from drink glasses.  Our jars can be reused as plant pots, to store cosmetics and stationery, or as sweet vases for seasonal flower arrangements throughout your home.

– We are invested in utilising the highest quality products, from our scents down to our packaging – which is recycled and observes measures towards sustainability. 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.
