a story of two besties...


It all began when Emma, ‘Candle dreamer upper extraordinaire’ took her childhood memories of cosy open fires and scented candles burning and combined them with her love for homewares, art and fragrance, creating Grace and James Candles.  The debut Artist Series is super special as she enlisted some of Australia’s finest designers & artists to create the stunning artwork you’re used to feasting your eyes on in the Grace and James range.

Emma met Cat (who is a genius in seeking out beauty) in California on holidays and it didn’t take long for the two to bond over their love for fashion, homewares and travel. To quote the creative duo –“We both love family, food and being in each other’s company… most of the time we don’t even need to talk – we’re both very different but that’s why it works.”

Their friendship has since grown into a creative collaboration, with the newest Botanical Series being a perfect reflection of all the things Cat loves – blooms, nature and fragrance - She also loves her cute daughter but we couldn’t create a fragrance sweet enough to reflect her. Aww. 

You’ll find out more about the Grace and James story and what we love in our Journal.
