Suga has lost track on how much time and money has been spent to find locally made candles that smell like the labelled scent or even have a scent once burned in the house, after ‘smelling and buying’.
Please leave comments at the end of this blog telling me who and where are your favourite scented, handpoured local Candle Makers in Jamaica.
I still cannot come across a handful with high quality, lasting scents and there are so many to choose from. So here are my faves!
Beryl + Blossom’s homemade, handpoured soy candles from Trelawny were a huge hit at Suga Lifestyle’s Christmas Connection last December 15th at The Jamaica Pegasus.
They had 6 new scents, Sorrel, Coffee + Sugar, Peppa Mint, Toto, Pimento and Lemon + ginger! I think it was their Lignum Vitae, Ortanique and Oracabessa that stole the show though and I have been using their Lignum Vitae for quite some time.

Laura Alexis Candles in Kingston is quite reputable for strong, refreshing scents as well. They also make handpoured soy candles. Putus and Hol’ A Fresh are my faves.
