You would be forgiven for thinking that the owners of this candle company are Scandinavian. But they are not. They are, in fact, two English dudes, who fell in love and ran away with two Scandinavian girls. Which might be our favorite ever origin story for a company we’ve featured. 

As well as falling in love with two Scandinavian women, they also became enamored with the Danish concept of Hygge, which sort of translates to cozy. And the whole purpose of their candles is to help create that warm, snuggly, atmosphere needed to get through those interminable northern winters. We got our hands on the Nordlys candle, inspired by the Northern Lights.
