New Destination Collections Coming Soon

Did you ever wish you could travel around the world from the comfort of your living room? With the launch of Colonial Candle’s Destination Collections, you can experience the world’s most renowned beaches and cultural hot spots without the jet lag. That is the beauty of fragrance, it can take you to places you’ve never been or remind you of cherished memories of a favorite getaway.

Each season we will introduce a new Destination Collection featuring four fragrances that will come in a limited variety of formats. This Spring we will be sailing away to the luxurious island of St. Barths with Topaz Waters, Coral Hibiscus, Cocoa Plum, and Melon Mojito. Pack your bags and check back each season to see which destination we will feature next!

Set a Leap Day Goal


Since February 29th is a special day that we only get to experience once every four years, we decided we would challenge ourselves to set a few goals. Our idea for today is simple: let’s decide what we would like to accomplish by the next leap year.

Where do you see yourself in four years? What do you want to cross off your bucket list by 2016? Maybe it’s a travel adventure or a new hobby that you would like to master. Whatever it is, it’s your special and unique leap year goal.

Next, make a promise to yourself to make it happen. Ask your friends and family to do the same. Take a moment to share with one another and hold each other to it. It’s easy to get caught up in the busy schedule of day to day life, but sometimes we need to reset and think about our goals.

To congratulate you on your leap year goal and making a plan to work towards it, our gift to you is 10% off your total purchase for today only at Just enter promo code “LEAP10″ at checkout and enjoy. Wishing everyone a wonderful leap day!

Colonial Candle, Be My Valentine.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

At the Colonial Candle office, we decided to share this special day with our one true love. Someone that is always there when we need them, always listens when we need a friend and has a special “glow” about them. That’s right, our favorite Colonial Candle.

Since it’s no secret that our team absolutely LOVES candles,  I decided to ask around and find out which candles our staff members are crushing on this year…

"I love the Sea Spray fragrance. It's fresh, salty and reminds me of being on the boat." - Russ, Graphic Designer



"Coconut Rain is my favorite. It makes me think of summertime and relaxing at the beach." -Beth, Director of Brand Development


"Simple Breeze... It's fresh and clean, which makes my house smell amazing." -Amanda, Product Manager


"Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorite fragrances. I always keep it in my house around the holidays."-Shannon, Graphic Designer


As for me, my favorite is Falling Leaves. I love fall weather and it reminds me of college football season.


Cupid definitely got it right this year.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Have a wonderful day with your loved ones…. including your favorite Colonial Candle!


Nice to Meet You

Redesigned Atlanta Showroom, January 2012

Welcome to 1909 & Meeting, the new Colonial Candle blog. First things first, I’m sure you are already wondering, “Why 1909 & Meeting?”

Our blog name brings together the past and the present, representing the rich history of Colonial Candle paired with the fresh, modern look of where we are today.

“1909” is the year that Colonial Candle was founded in Cape Cod, Massachusetts by Mabel Baker. “Meeting” is a reference to Meeting Street, a well-known street in the center of Charleston, South Carolina, the city we call home today. When you put the two together, you get the spirit of our new blog, “1909 & Meeting.” We will feature the latest Colonial Candle updates, behind-the-scenes footage, and exclusive content that will enhance your Colonial Candle experience.

As for the Colonial Team, we’ve been hard at work these past few months. Our showrooms in Atlanta, Dallas & Las Vegas were redesigned by famed interior designer, Jim Weinberg, and we unveiled a new look with emphasis on our signature oval shape to our fabulous retailers at the winter market shows.  We can’t wait for our new products, fragrances and collections to debut throughout the year!

 Follow along and get to know us a little better. Also, be sure to check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you again soon!
