Growing up in the South of France, Artisane NYC owner, Melanie, fell in love with nature and the beauty of experiencing it with all your senses. Smell was the most prominent as she often enjoyed the aromas of fields of lavender, roses, pine, and olive trees as they perfumed her life.

After traveling around, Melanie eventually found herself in New York and fell in love with this wonderful city. It inspires her, encourages her, and allows her to live her dreams. But even though she loves NY, she often finds herself missing home. To relive those wonderful memories of France she fills her home with gorgeous scented candles made from scratch. Now she wants to share this wonderful craft with you!

All candles made by Artisane use high-quality, natural ingredients like soy or coconut wax and phthalate-free fragrances. If you often find scented items to be headache-inducing, then these natural candles can be your solution!

Step into Melanie's world and enjoy a taste of the south of France by making candles in one of her wonderful workshops.

This was such a wonderful virtual event. Not only was the event materials provided of top quality, but it was also packed beautifully & with care. We all just LOVED our host. She was just the sweetest & you could tell she was not only well-informed on her craft, but also very passionate about it. We all thoroughly enjoyed this event & were so proud of our candles! I definitely recommend this event!

I booked a class to host a group of 26 for my birthday celebration. All my friends have mentioned that it was a perfect idea because the class lets everyone enjoy a new experience together and offers a memorable piece to take home with them. Our massive group had been somewhat disorganized in the beginning but our teacher was absolutely skilled at managing the chaos and was able to lead us all throughout the whole class. The class is only for 45 minutes, where you can learn and easily make your own candles with your favorite scents. I strongly recommend this candle-making class for friends, couples, families with kids, and everyone regardless of age or gender!

Everything was good Teacher is nice and friendly, venue is beautiful and the class was interesting, maybe just little more information how to DIY at home, like what are the best materials, wax and where to find them…

Haley Neumann Feb 2024

I thought the class was nice; however, it was a bit overpriced. It was only 45 minutes and we got to take home one candle. I think that we would have felt like we got our money's worth if we got to take home two candles each.

Very fun and easy to learn. Great birthday gift for my wife and I to do together.

We hired Melanie for our end-of-year virtual company team building/holiday meeting. Melanie was lovely and professional. All the kits were shipped right away and even to international employees, and everyone got them on time.
We only have good feedback, and we're happy to have natural candles now. I would have never guessed that there is so much information we didn't know about candles and candle making.
It would also be quite easy and relaxing to make the candles. We truly appreciated the quality of the ingredients that Melanie sourced.

Brandy Dean Dec 2023

The box I received had everything I needed to complete the project. It was a little awkward needing to be in the kitchen to melt the wax, and trying to engage with the webinar in my office, but I made it work. I appreciate all of the useful tips that were shared about making and using candles.

Jennifer Laxson Dec 2023

Bona Jeong Jan 2022

Melanie was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions in details and thoughtful manner. I always wanted to learn about candle making for hobby, and this amazing birthday gift from my sister gave me this chance! This specific venue got a little noisy in the end as the customers started to come in for lunch. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who has interest just from hobby to starting a business. Thanks Melanie!
