About Our Brand

Meet Defined Elegance - your favorite new luxury candles

Located in Maryland, just minutes away from Washington, DC, Defined Elegance Candle Co., is a Black woman -owned small business focused on curating safe, high-quality candles that provide luxurious feelings through unique scents. 

Our motto: candles that put a zestful twist on luxury in a jar. 

Founder Shayla created Defined Elegance Candle Co. after realizing how she would catch unbearable headaches after burning big-box brand candles. She did the research and learned all bout phthalates and the harmful chemicals that are in traditional scented candles. So she vowed to keep phthalates put of her candles, only working with 100% soy wax. 

Our unique scents are sure to set the mood. 

A captivating experience like no other

We pride ourselves on our meticulous craftsmanship, ethics and affordability. 

Our candles are all hand-poured in our home studio in Maryland. The 100% soy wax is blended in small batches with fragrances and essential oils. Our candles are 100% phthalate free and will burn cleanly all the way down. Every single candle is poured by hand and hand labeled and packaged. We are proud to make a product that is beautiful, sustainable and made in the USA.
