Many hands go into the making of our luxury candles. Upcycled vodka, wine, liquor and beer bottles are filled with the perfect blend of the finest beeswax, vegetable waxes and delicate, sumptuous Swiss perfumes.
Our quality ingredients and attention to detail mean that WOO room candles are among the longest-lasting available, burning for up to 100 hours. Their calming glow lights up the space around them and the story behind them will lighten your heart.
Every WOO candle is an authentic piece of handmade workmanship, embodying our love of quality, connection and sharing. Our ethical approach to production also positively impacts the environment, and we’re proud to contribute new skills and capabilities to the communities in which we operate.
“Light tomorrow with today.” – Elizabeth Barrett Browning
At each step in their production, we bring innovative lifestyle design to life by creating outstanding, handmade, luxury candles from sustainable (recycled and natural) resources.
Organised teams collect used bottles for WOO in Vietnam. As active members in our WOO community, our partners become an essential and valuable part of our co-creative process.
After another team cleans, cuts and refines the bottles (skills learned in specialised workshops we organize) the bottles are sandblasted with a logo by hand.
We knew that the secret to the success of our candles was not only the premium quality of production and paraffin-free beeswax, but the delicious scents that linger in your room with every burn.
To develop our four signature scents, we partnered with a Swiss perfumier, who created an exotic and exclusive range of notes and bouquets that add ambience and atmosphere to any space. Read more about the process and our wonderful fragrances below.
To complete the candle-making process, we use the finest quality handmade cotton wicks from Germany.
When we set out to create our candle, we didn’t just want to make any candle. We wanted to create a covetable, socially responsible product that would bring joy into the lives of its owner.
In an ongoing journey that took many months to perfect, we sourced, tested and revised our design until we produced a luxury candle of a very high standard. Today, this dedication to quality is captured in our growing collection of lifestyle products including jewellery and textiles.
You can find a lucky coin in most of our candles. WOO’s lucky coin is about double happiness, sharing live and caring about each other.
The formula for WOO’s luxury candles is never complete – we believe in continuous improvement by way of testing and upgrading our processes and production techniques to achieve a candle of superior quality.
At the same time, we also continuously work to optimise the impact of WOO, to see how we can positively impact on people’s lives through our successful model of local sustainable enterprise.
In order to ensure complete transparency and individual empowerment, we work exclusively with small teams and continually add new partners. The WOO family is expanding all the time!
To source the beeswax for our candles, WOO works directly with associations of local farmers in Vietnam. As clients, we are closely involved in the welfare of our farmers, collaborating in mutually beneficial partnerships that utilize their own expertise and ours to produce premium quality products that are enjoyed around the world.
WOO beeswax is filtered and melted with the utmost care. For optimum burn time and performance, we also blend our beeswax with other certified organic vegetable waxes.
In an era of celebrity scents and glossy marketing to sell them, WOO proposes an antidote to the obsession with hype. WOO candles and their beautiful scents are quickly becoming a cult secret, whispered through wafts of citrus, musk, spice and lemongrass. What started out as a craving for a boutique scent has now become a cherished presence in homes across the world.
For fans of home fragrance, WOO offers luxury candles that are available in four carefully-developed alternatives, created exclusively for WOO in collaborating with one of the best Swiss perfume houses. Never overpowering or intrusive, each subtle and enchanting fragrance cleanses the air and arouses warm feelings that enhance your surroundings for hours. Gentle and calming, our fragrances are perfect for every mood, and we have a delightful scent for every nose.
