Internationally Inspired — Made in the U.S.A.

A bit about Illume

Fragrances in southern France or a colorful market in Marrakesh may offer inspiration, but every one of our scented candles is poured at the Illume factory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We couldn't imagine them being made anywhere else.

When it comes to candle making, you could call us perfectionists or a bit type-A. We are compulsive when it comes to finessing fragrance and marrying it to the ideal wax. Don't even get us going about straightening wicks or the purity of paraffin.

It's about maintaining quality every step of the way ensuring an Illume candle burns beautifully from first light to last flicker.
