Burke & Hare Co Goth Candles and Supernatural Scents

Burke & Hare Co was established in 2011 by owner/designer Erica with the goal of creating specialty items of a darker aesthetic without compromising style. We strive to make candles and fragrances that take inspiration from our love of all things dark and dreary. Heavily influenced by our obsession with goth music, graveyards, 80s + 90s fashion and the elegance of Morticia Addams -- we hope to create products that reflect our (and your) unique tastes!

Having always utilized candles as decorative items both for their light and for their presence, it seemed rare to find scents and imagery specific to these interests when we started in 2011 on Etsy. Motivated by the desire to have tasteful goth decor for our own home -- we created decorative pillars and scented candles.

In 2017 we also opened a store called October! Stocked with our beloved candles, we also brought in as many of our favorite dark artists and creators and hope to continue to build a brand alongside so many other talented independent artists!

To date, BHCO has donated $15,000 to local animal shelters as part of our mission to give back to our community! You can feel confident in your purchase knowing that we are certified cruelty free, vegan and supporters of pets in need.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Allow your candle to burn long enough for the melt pool to reach the edges of the glass, this is when your candle's scent throw will be at its peak!

Remember to always trim your wicks before relighting your candle. Excess wick and black build can cause smoking and doing this keeps your jar and home free of soot!
