Who is Lumiere Rene Scented Candles?

Handcrafted with love in Quincy, MA.
All of our candles are made with coconut soy wax and high quality phthalate free fragrance and essential oils to ensure that our candles burn clean and produce toxin free scents. Each candle is hand-poured in small batches to ensure quality and consistency.

Lumière René is more than just a candle company; it's a tribute to the essence of my beloved grandfather, the man who sparked the very idea behind this venture.

But Lumière René is  also more than just candles; it's an experience. To enhance your moments of solace, every Lumière René candle comes with a specially curated playlist. This harmonious blend of scents and sounds creates an atmosphere of serenity and joy, just as my grandfather did in his presence.

We pour our hearts into crafting each Lumière René candle, and we sincerely hope that you find as much joy in them as we do in creating them for you.

Lord Hobo & Grillos have partnered up to plan a perfect pickle party for your pleasure with the release of their pickle beer!
Sunday, November 13th we’re hosting a dill-ightful party entirely surrounding National Pickle Day in our Woburn Taproom. Fully stocked with pickle games, giveaways and pickle SWAG, we’re sure you’ll relish in all of the activities, including coloring books to entertain the little gherkins. There will be a specialized pickle food menu that will pair perfectly with the release of the Grillo’s Pickle infused Pickle Beer. Plus samples of a new ice cream flavor...
For an extra pickle on top, you'll even get a chance to meet Sam Sam himself! We’re brimming with excitement on this dill-icious concoction of an event.
