  • About

Nantucket Candle Co. was founded by Nantucket local, Hayden Arnot, in August of 2019. The company has since catapulted into the candle industry, but not without forgetting where it came from. The love project is intended to tap into your energy and ignite memories of a salty, nostalgic beach town just off the coast of Cape Cod. 

And that’s not all. Nantucket Candle Co. gives a portion of its proceeds back to the Nantucket Conservation Foundation every year. The Foundation is responsible for protecting the island’s most delicate habitats.

  • The Candles

The company’s pioneer scents are affectionately named after a few of the best spots on the island—Cisco, Sconset, and Polpis. They smell of sweet ocean air, fragrant blooming wildflowers, and fresh green grass. The newest addition to the collection is Palm Beach, a refreshing aroma of jasmine and gardenia. 

Nantucket Candle Co. also works with local artists to create stunning candles to adorn the tables of your big day. Choose a scent and create a watercolor masterpiece when you design your custom wedding candles
