We didn't think candles had to be boring...

About 54°Celsius

ts been about 150 years since candles were vital for light. Now their role is more refined. They create ambiance. Their combination of warm low light, scent, and slow transformation make them the essential solution for communicating the mood. Whether it's intimacy, festivity, enchantment or elegance - candles say it like nothing else can.

54 Celsius strives to enhance the conversation by bringing you candles that are so beautiful and unique that they can easily transition from a supporting role to the star of the show. We both design our own collections and we share the work of some very talented friends by distributing their candles here in the US and UK.

What's in the name 54 Celsius? You probably guessed it.
