MEET THE MAKERS
Agapé Candles is a California-based home fragrance company created in 2016. Together, Rachel and Chris design, produce and ship all of the products from their studio location in downtown Tracy, CA.
As Agapé grows, Rachel and Chris are committed to keeping sustainability within their products, down to the packaging and reusable vessels. Agapé Candles is not about creating more, but creating better. All of their products are made from 100% soy wax that is domestically grown. The entire line is cruelty-free, phthalate-free, dye-free and eco-friendly.
Agapé Candles was developed with the idea that home fragrance should be an everyday luxury. The clean branded packaging and minimal aesthetic is on purpose. The purpose for anyone to be able to seamlessly style them in their home. To give moments of restoration throughout the day as well as inspiration.
So why the name, Agapé? Simply, it means love. The love God has for us and what we should have for one another. And who doesn't love, love?! Each candle scent created has a story or memory behind it.
Rachel Rae, Creator + Founder of Agapé Candles
Hi, I'm Rachel Rae, the founder of Agapé Candles. As long as I can remember i have always been a connoisseur of candles (if you will) and loved fragrances. Even my daily perfumes were different ones layered for a unique scent. I started making my own candles because I just couldn't find the perfect scent for my home. It evolved and Agapé Candles was born!
Creating this line, I have poured my heart and soul into every piece of it. Choosing the name was the most important for me. I get asked often why Agapé? Simply, it is love. The love God has for us and what we should have for one another. And who doesn't love, love?! Each candle is personal to me and there is a story or memory behind each scent.
When I'm not pouring candles in the studio you can find me decorating! I have a passion for interior design and love curating a new spaces. I also love slow Saturday mornings spent with my husband and 2 fur babies!
