Xystos, the home of flame and fragrance, has become the UK distributor for Candle-lite, which claims to have the best-selling line of candles in mass retail stores in the United States and to sell more candles in America than any other candle company or brand. Xystos launched two Candle-lite Company ranges at Spring Fair, the Every Day Collection and Classic Royale.
Founded in Cincinnati in 1840, Candle-lite has been in continuous operation for 175 years. As America’s original candle maker, its history is filled with product and process innovation that delivered ever-higher quality candles to America’s homes. Candle-lite has continued to innovate into the new millennium. In recent years its chemists developed proprietary wax blends using food grade paraffin, renewable wax materials and natural ingredients like soy, palm and corn.
It was first to market with a scented palm wax candle in the 1990s whose blends combine in a unique manner with natural fragrance oils, while its all-cotton composition, lead-free, innovative woven wicks deliver brighter, wider flames and superior fragrance throw. Xystos director Tom Sykes said: “We are delighted to go into 2016 with such a high-profile brand in our portfolio. We are confident that UK consumers will fall in love with its true-to-life scents and the great burn performance of these candles.”
