We handcraft experiences.
Meet the Maker
Welcome to my shop! My name is Amber and I'm the Chandler-in-Chief here at The Common Scents Co. Simply put I'm a Geechie girl from Savannah, GA (C-Port) that had the audacity to lean on her faith in God, jump from the plane, and crash land into entrepreneurship. From this leap of faith, The Common Scents Co took root. We are an artisan candle company nestled comfortably in metro Atlanta, Georgia. This company was born from a seed of faith planted by my desire to live a fruitful and purposeful life.
Why We're Here
In these 3 years since this shop began, I’ve learned it’s not really about the candles (though they are pretty dope if I say so myself
). The entire point of what we do here is creating experiences through the relationships we build together.
Every candle starts with the thought “What will they feel when they smell this?”
The key ingredient in every part of this is YOU. That’s how I create. Every candle is handcrafted with your experience in mind.
What favorite memories do you have? What places do you love traveling to? What do you do to relax? How did you feel when you met the love of your life? What does Christmas smell like? What song did you have on repeat when you felt your first heartbreak?
All of these questions and so much more are what I consider when I craft each candle from the simplest ingredients. Soy wax, phthalate free oil, cotton wicks, and my hands - that's it. From the oils to the wicks to the label, every aspect of our products are selected and placed by hand. Poured from my heart by my hands and into yours.
