The Columbia Fragrance Co. started as a dream nearly five years ago, when Dorene was looking for ways to combine her love of art with her desire to expand her business creativity beyond her day job. The dream became a reality when she began making candles as gifts and soon had too many to give or burn herself!
She started selling locally in Ohio as D'Lites by Dorene. A change in her day job enabled her to move to Maryland to live with her fiance. This opportunity prompted her to evolve from the crafty brand of D'LItes to the more retail focused The Columbia Fragrance Co.
Always crafty and having an entrepreneurial spirit, Dorene's love of candles and fragrances dates back as long as she can remember. While it is the fragrance which first attracted her to candle making, it is the spectrum of colors which keeps her fascinated in the process.
"Finding just the right color to demonstrate the mood of a fragrance is the biggest challenge. But as we're usually visual people before we're fragrance people, the color needs to be just perfect before I'll put my candle out for sale."
While fragrances run from the standard and classic vanilla to the fresh and spring lilac, Dorene especially enjoys creating her own blends. Most of her new line incorporate fragrances which mimic trends in food and more sophisticated scents with deeper middle and bottom notes.
All our products are hand poured at the time of order, polished, then carefully packaged for its trip to your home. All candles are tested for fragrance and burn quality before being presented for sale.
Colors shown are standard and requests for different color or no color are considered special orders and may take additional time to pour. Please note, the color of your candle may vary from the product shown due to differences in personal monitor settings and the batch your candle is poured.
