Tamara Mayne

Brooklyn Candle Studio is based in the historic Greenwood Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.

Here, in a small crafter’s studio, Brooklyn Candle Studio crafts scented candles with a commitment to employing time-honored techniques to achieve a clean, natural product with an elegant style. Brooklyn Candle Studio’s artisans create wholesome candles with a calming and sophisticated allure all their own.

Long intrigued by the art of candle-making, founder Tamara Mayne began crafting candles in 2013 on a whim over her small New York City apartment’s stove. Despite its humble beginnings, the project quickly ignited a passion for the simple, timeless craft; soon, she found herself selling candles to customers attracted to the products’ natural ingredients and refined aesthetic. Today, inspired by the handcrafted approach of nineteenth-century apothecaries, Tamara continues to develop her own natural fragrances, which she then blends with clean-burning soy wax and pours around an all-cotton wick. The result is a simple product that belies the delicate care and commitment that goes into ensuring nothing distracts from the experience of each candle, its delicate glow and evocative aroma.
