- ABOUT US -
Coast of Jamaica is the result of a desire for candles that not only smell good but also look good. Novelette, the creator of Coast of Jamaica, taught herself the art of candle making & fragrance blending.
Novelette crafts her candles by providing Eco -Friendly handmade soy candles with an array of highly scented fragrances that will instantly turn your home into the Coast of Jamaica. She chose to use soy wax because it burns cleaner with no petrol carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles, it burns longer, it supports American farmers, it's biodegradable which makes spills easier to clean, and it stimulates the economy by utilizing a natural, renewable resource.
Making candles started out as a therapeutic venture for Novelette after loosing her home to a candle fire back in 2011 on Christmas Day. She also wanted to create a unique line of candles that will give everyone the experience of the tropical aromas that Jamaica has to offer . After She mastered the craft of candle making, she began passing them out to friends and family as gifts or for any reason what so ever. Soon she was getting requests from friends and family for more and the rest is history.
The learning has been exciting, thus trenchant, but fun. She wishes to continue experimenting with creative blends and natures' finds to give you scents that you haven't already experienced.
It's been her true pleasure watching people acknowledge their inner nature, adventure and wild life through the magic she creates.
With new collections always in the making, Coast of Jamaica brings the essence of Jamaican paradise into your home.
Each collection starts with a story. A place, an idea, etc. Then that story is formed into a vessel. All of our vessels, even our packaging started as a gift from nature and then shaped into a decor piece for your home.
We work with all natural seashells, coconut shells, recycled tins, glass and kraft paper. We are an eco friendly brand all around even down to the natural soy wax we use.
Every candle is hand poured in a small studio in Los Angeles, where we blend the soy wax , natural fragrance oils & cotton or wooden wicks.
