A little bit about us.... we're a husband and wife team who both love making and creating and adore our lifestyle here on the Gold Coast.
Lou has always had a love of style and design and has a passion for creating ambient spaces. Candles have always been a constant in her life - she is super passionate about the way a candle can add to a space, enhance a gathering and help to create special moments. After many years of buying other people's candles and feeling frustrated at times with the quality and often synthetic fragrance blends she decided to 'dabble' in candle making. Like anything she does she gave it her all with an aim to create a beautiful scented candle with a clean, non-toxic burn, in fragrance blends that are strong enough to leave an impact but not synthetic or too overpowering. After testing her product at local markets she discovered that her customer base quickly grew and 'Drift' candles started to become known for their quality and signature blends.
Paul is a qualified carpenter/joiner by trade with over 20 years of experience. During his early days building houses he'd knock up bespoke pieces of furniture in his spare time for family and friends - a hobby that he was truly passionate about. For the past 6 years Paul has been working full time creating beautiful bespoke timber furniture, kitchens & bathrooms for clients - turning his passion into his livelihood. Paul has always relied on 'word-of-mouth' of previous clients which is testament to the quality craftsmanship and professionalism of his work.
These days 'Drift' candles have taken over, with increasing demand from retailers and customers, Paul now works almost full time in our candle factory in Currumbin on the Gold Coast. We both work super hard (often 7 days a week) to product quality, hand poured scented soy candles with the knowledge that our candles are enjoyed in homes throughout Australia and beyond.
Thanks for reading about us - we are true 'old school' makers and creators who love what we do and are grateful for people like you who take the time to listen to our story and support our product.
