A STORY OF TWO BESTIES...
Grace and James is headed by style genius Cat Sanders, who loves all things beauty. Cat’s creative vision leads Grace and James in the sweet aromas and style now synonymous with our brand.
A chance meeting in California a few years ago introduced Cat to her now bestie, Emma Davenport, who had previously founded Grace and James with a collection of 6 candles designed in collaboration with Australian artists.
A common love for fragrance, travel and French fries bonded the two like glue, so when Emma’s career on our television screens took off, it was only natural that Cat would take over ownership of Grace and James. Under Cat’s creative guidance, and our expert team, Grace and James has since released the Botanical Series; a collection of candles inspired by nature, and the BARE range; the ultimate in simplicity and style.

Our candles are hand poured in Melbourne, Australia – yay for locally made! Our team of Chandlers (aka candle technicians, and yes, one is actually named James!) are genius pourers and spend endless hours perfecting the process to create one of the best burning candles in the Australian market.
At Grace and James, we care what you’re burning. We know you do too. Our candles are a blend of essential oils and fragrance, partnered with soy blended wax. Featuring a double cotton wick for optimal burning, they are paraffin free. Our signature size lasts for over 80 hours, bringing you seemingly endless hours of fragrant goodness.
Sustainability and the mark we are making on our planet is at the forefront of our production. While constantly refining our manufacturing processes, our packaging is 100% recyclable. Our glass candle vessels are perfect for reuse. We love seeing how our fellow Grace and James lovers have repurposed as beauty product storage, tea glasses, coffee cups, vases. The options are endless.
HAND POURED IN MELBOURNE
We choose to hand pour our candles in small production runs to give you the very best candle possible. Some variations may be seen from candle to candle. Enjoy the individual character of each candle, knowing time and care have been poured into every step of its creation.
