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.

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!
