Luxury candles inspired by Asian Flavors

Emme Essentials was founded by Mark & Erica in 2020, a few months into the Covid-19 pandemic. It was our first year living in New York City, across the country from where we grew up and we had no idea when we would see our families again. At this point, we really started to miss home, but not just the people or the places we were used to. It was the feeling of home, our heritage, and being able to connect to our culture as Asian Americans.

Burning candles was our way of indulging in self-care but we realized the scents we grew up with weren’t represented in the home fragrance industry! With that in mind, we set out to create Emme Essentials, a full collection of candles dedicated to Asian flavors. Done in an elevated way with clean ingredients, as our way of sharing our culture with the rest of the world.

I hope you enjoyed our brief introduction to Emme Essentials, we can’t wait to show you what we’re working on!
