Emme Essentials was founded in 2020, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Shortly after moving across the country from their families, Asian American couple Mark and Erica found solace in burning candles but found themselves wishing there were familiar scents that would remind them of home and their Asian heritage. Seeing an opportunity to share their cultures with the rest of the world and bring comfort to others feeling homesick, Emme Essentials was born. Hand-poured in micro-batches in New York City, Emme Essentials is a collection of luxury candles dedicated to traditional Asian flavors.
