Present Day Candles

Jersey City, New Jersey

Announcement    We are making scented candles in collectible tins now! My home is in Jersey City, NJ. We have a great view of Hackensack River from where I live and city life and birdwalks inspire me.

Most recently since experiencing all the changes in the past several years in my own home and our culture, making scented candles has been a scientific hobby and I get to share the products with friends, family and customers across the country.

I Heart Making Jewelry

Welcome to Present Day Candles, the home-grown urban maker studio who is growing into the world of scented candles and enjoying both the process and the product!

The name Present Day is inspired by bringing oneself back into the moment and we feel our scented candles make it a pleasure to stay present in your space.

Over the years, maker Maureen Gallagher has changed styles and processes, from photostyling, prop styling, lost-wax and metal-clay jewelry making to boutique candle making.

Our current favorite wax is a Coconut wax blend with soy and paraffin.

The sweet metal tins and glass jars are sourced for uniqueness to the market and reusability. Once the candles are all done the containers can be reused for storage of small things and desk accessories.

It turns out candle making is a science! Each scent and container combination takes a minimum of 4 vessels and wick combinations and two weeks cure time to test. Once we get it right we have the recipe to make high quality candles in your favorite scents.

We hope you like our products, and hope you are inspired by all the ways you can enjoy your space with special candles from Present Day--
