'Grace + Marie' was founded in 2017 by self-confessed candle addict Cartier.
Being a combination of my middle name (Marie) and that of my sister (Grace), and both names being a tribute to our grandparents and great-grandparents, the 'Grace + Marie’ name itself reflects the love and devotion that goes into making each product.
the entire process, From start to finish, of creating each product is hand-done by me in Torquay, Australia. All candles and diffusers are hand-poured using high-quality ingredients and available in a variety of fragrances and elegant glassware to elevate your home.
I love working with my customers to create the product of their dreams, which is why I'm proud to also offer customised and personalised candles orders suitable for corporate gifts, favours, and bonbonnieres.
Our luxury soy candles + diffusers have been designed to indulge your senses with their dreamy aromas and stylish aesthetic.
Each product is made further unique through my passion to recycle and reuse materials; when your Grace + Marie candle or diffuser is finished, simply clean out the jar and return it to receive a 10% discount on a replacement candle/diffuser.
By reusing these jars, I aim to work with my customers to contribute to global efforts to reduce the impact we humans have on the environment.
My environmental promise goes beyond reusing old jars though. I pride myself on using natural ingredients and products that are non-harmful to both the environment and animals.
The wax used in each candle is a natural plant-based soy wax that is GMO-free and contains no paraffin, no unnatural additives, and is vegan and kosher.
The fragrance oils used are premium quality that are manufactured in Australia and packaged in phthalate-free, recyclable, PET plastic bottles. in addition, none of our fragrances are tested on animals, are completely vegan/cruelty-free, non-toxic, and contain no palm oil.
When products are shipped I avoid buying plastic packaging, and instead re-cycle old bubble wrap and packaging materials that I've collected from previous parcels I have received. Your order may even be packaged using biodegradable packing peanuts. These dissolve in water and can be thrown into compost piles after a single-use.
Give Back Initiative
I'm big on supporting those around me, from endangered sea life to those affected by raging bushfires across Australia; which is why, when I can, I commit to donating a portion of every order towards a charity/cause that I feel needs some extra support.
read about the causes/charities we have supported so far below.
Right now NSW and QLD are in a state of emergency. Both states are in the midst of catastrophic and unprecedented conditions in what could be the most dangerous and destructive week of bushfires in Australia’s history.
Thanks to everyone that made an order during this month; we were able to donate $65 to The Salvation Army Australia Emergency & Disaster Appeal to assist those affected by the fires and the firefighters currently doing their best to fight them.
Thank you for all your orders during this month that enabled us to donate 15% of sales this month; we were able to donate $70 towards Zoos Victoria Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund and $70 towards Kangaroo Island Mayoral Relief & Recovery Bushfire Fund.
