Northern Ireland entrepreneurs, Jonny and Andrew have built Serenity Candles NI into a thriving business that they are passionate about. Join us as we chat to them both to see what motivates them.
Did you always want to be a maker? How did you get started?
As a candle maker, I’ve always had a passion for home fragrances. My desire to start up serenity candles came from my love of Jo Malone that inspired me to make Luxury Candles with an affordable price tag.
Who or what inspires you as an maker?
A lot of my inspirations comes from my desire to create bigger and better things. I’ve always appreciated products that are handmade, it’s means something!
What makes your pieces unique?
All our fragrances are inspired through travelling to different countries and experiencing different cultures. We then set out to find fragrances that would best represent the countries we visited during our travels.
Also our Rose gold Lid and monochrome style bow creates a sense of luxury combined with a strong scent of smells. This is what means our soy candles stand out from the rest, it’s made with 100% soy wax handpoured to a high standard.
Do you have a favourite material that you work with?
Soy wax! All our products are based around soywax, it’s a vital part when making our candles and also helping the environment with its clean burning form. It also prolongs the life of a candle by allowing extra burntime.
What projects are you currently working on?
With any business, it’s vital to work on future projects to benefit the company. Currently we are planning to extend our handsoap product with matching hand lotions. This will then be sold as a set!
Also we are planning on bringing our own perfume range in year three of business.
Do you have a favourite pieces or one that you are most proud of?
There isn’t one in particular as I’m so proud of each product although our very first candle was our signature Size that started serenity Candles Journey.
They all smell so great!
