About us

Illuminati Waxworks was founded in 2014, in a not-quite-renovated Victorian in vibrant Oakland, California. With a background in interior design, I have always appreciated the way that our surroundings influence our mood. For me, home fragrance is another layer that enhances your space, and in a very powerful way. Nothing sets a mood or evokes a feeling quite so much as scent, and our mission is to create fragrances as beautiful and unique as the places you use them. Our containers complement any space, from the most traditional cottage to the sleekest urban loft.

Making our products ecologically friendly is just as important to us as making beautiful fragrances. All of our candles are made with clean-burning, American-grown soy wax.  Our cotton/paper wicks are metal-free, and our scents are derived from a blend of essential oils and phthalate free, premium grade fragrance oils. All of our containers are reusable, as well as recyclable. Once your candle has burned to the end, simply wash the tin or tumbler with warm, soapy water and it’s ready for its next incarnation.
