Grace and James began in 2015 as a small retail range of 6 candles. The fabulous Emma Davenport (now Vosti) started this collection of stunning scents in collaboration with key Australian Artists who designed the packaging for each candle. 

Emma’s career in TV soon took off, so her bestie, Cat Sanders took over the reigns as Owner and Creative Director. Under Cat and her husband Travis’s powerhouse vision and creativity, Grace and James has since grown to 2 gorgeous collections, the Botanical and Bare, offering 19 scents over 2 different size options.

Grace and James has also become one of Australia’s most reputable private label manufacturers, creating candle collections for some of Australia’s leading fashion, homewares and iconic brands such as T2, LVLY, The NGV Store, Spell and Flannel.  HQ and production facility is based in Melbourne, Victoria and is a bustling hive of activity with a team of committed creatives and makers who love what they do and have a lot of fun along the way! 



Our team of makers are passionate. As in, PASSIONATE about creating gorgeous candles. 

Every candle in our collection is hand poured, with epic amounts of love and care added to wax and fragrance! 

Hand poured in Melbourne, Australia – (yay for locally made!) our team 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.  



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.
