Now, I know there are a ton of other candles out there, and you have a lot of options when it comes to where to buy wholesale candles. So, why should you shop wholesale candles from us?

So glad you asked ;) - Here are 5 Reasons Scented Designs are the Wholesale Candles to Buy:

#2 Consumers Love Our Candles, Too!

We don't sell candles too much on Etsy anymore, but it's one of the first places Scented Designs got its start before building our own ecommerce website. 171 Sales and 55 Reviews later, we maintained our 5-Star Rating with ease.

Fun Fact: At the time, our candle company name was Scented Designs by Kate (as you can see) because we were still selling candles at a lot of local craft shows and I wanted that personal element of having my name as part of the business name.

Once my humble candle shop started to grow beyond the weekend craft shows, I rebranded and we became Scented Designs Candle Co!

#3 We Represent Values that We (and Many Of Your Customers) Care About


We are about more than just creating the best candles possible! We also stand for important values in today's world, many of which are getting lost in the noise of big-box retailers and Amazon.

At Scented Designs, we...

..are Woman-Owned and -Operated

...are a Family-Run Business

...Give Back to the Community through programs like 1% for the Planet

...Hand-make our products in the USA (California to be exact!)

...Listen to Customer Feedback and strive to create the cleanest, best-smelling candles we can for our customers and their loved ones

...Offer Personalization of Candles and Packages, whether through custom labels or personal messages. We want our customers to know we care, and to give them a level of service they can't get from other, bigger candle stores

...are Mindful of the Environment, especially in how we re-use packaging materials (according to the EPA, in 2018, 20.9% of landfill waste came from 'container and packaging products, especially corrugated boxes')

#4 We Make Really Good-Smelling Candles

In a recent market research survey we conducted here at Scented Designs, we discovered (perhaps to no one's surprise) that 98.8% of candle-buyers care about scent as the most important factor they look for in a candle.

Aesthetic and Price came in as the next two most-important candle qualities at 53.7% and 57.3%, respectively.

Since we consistently receive comments on how good our candles smell, this is good news for us, I think, and a compelling reason for retailers to shop wholesale candles with us!
