Imagine striking a match, lighting a candle and being instantly transported to a favorite childhood memory or the place you love most on Earth.

Well, that’s exactly what’s possible every time you light a P.F. Candle.

P. F. (Or Pommes Frites) Candle Co. aspires to inspire a little more conscious awareness through the power of scent. Scent plays an enormous role in how we craft our memories and when it’s activated, it has the power to inspire a toothy grin, start a conversation, spark a daydream and can even be the driving force behind elaborate adventure plans.

This Los Angeles-based candle and home fragrance goods company is owned and operated by wife and husband team Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger who firmly believe in the joys and power of doing things by hand. Each of their candles is hand poured, packaged and shipped in their Los Angeles studio using 100% U.S. grown soy wax, cotton-core wicks, fine fragrance oils and apothecary inspired packaging.

Their mission is a relatively simple one… To create candles and home goods by hand that take you to a familiar place or inspire an adventure to one you’ve yet to visit. As Kristen shared, “With our candles, the most important thing is the scent. Whether it’s something that evokes a childhood memory or reminds you of your travels, we’re always working to make sure our candles smell exactly as they sound.”

From stirring the wax to pouring it, setting the wicks and packing each box for shipping, nearly every step of their production process is completed by hand and their commitment to quality is ever-present.

Adventure is everywhere and yours is waiting.
