We first became aware of P.F. Candle Co when friends from L.A. came to visit, bringing a mini (now iconic) Teakwood & Tobacco candle with them. A scent they swore by, it was a way to bring a sense of home with them as they toured the world. We fell hard for the amber jars with gold lids, and started to explore all the scents finding each one just as special as the last.
P.F. Candle Co. design, produce, and ship all their products from under one roof in Los Angeles, CA. P.F.’s mission is to create high-end quality candles at accessible price points, making home fragrance an everyday luxury.
P.F. Candle Co., born Pommes Frites, was founded by Kristen in 2008.It was in 2012, after a variety of products, and hours on the craft fair circuit, that the P.F. Candle Co. signature amber jar line was launched. Since 2013, P.F. has expanded from two people to a team of 25. From a second bedroom operation to globally recognised brand, P.F. is a completely bootstrapped enterprise.
How to use P.F. Candle Co. candles
- For optimal burning, trim your wick to 5mm before each lighting to avoid smoking and overheating.
- Always protect the surface on which the candle sits.
- The first burn of any candle should be long enough for the entire top layer of wax to liquefy. This will ensure an even burn for each light.
- Refrain from burning candles longer than 3 hours at a time, and never burn a candle when there is less than 1cm of wax at the base.
- Never leave a candle burning unattended or within reach of drafts, pets, or small children.
- Candle jar will be hot after burning, so allow the wax to cool completely before handling
- Once the flame is extinguished make sure the wick is upright and centred.
How to use P.F. Candle Co. diffusers
- Place the sticks (reeds) that came with your diffuser into the bottle to absorb the fragrance oil.
- Once in a while flip the sticks so that the “dry” end is now closest to the bottle and the saturated end is in the air.
- Let your reed diffuser’s fragrance naturally permeate your space. The diffuser oil will continue to evaporate into the air, creating a long-lasting luxurious scent.
- Keep away from direct sunlight or other heat sources that may prematurely dry reeds
- Remove a few reeds if a lighter scent throw is desired
- Fragrance oil is not developed for aromatherapy diffusers or humidifiers
- Do not consume and keep away from children or pets. If the oil spills, clean up immediately, as the oils and resins can cause damage to some finishes.

P.F. Candle Co. Reviews
"I’m super sensitive when it comes to scents, so I was a bit reluctant to try a diffuser at first. After smelling the Teakwood and Tobacco fragrance, I instantly loved it because of its deep and unisex notes. With a base of sandalwood, teak, cedarwood and patchouli, the scent fills the room subtly, but still enough to notice. I’ve been keeping the diffuser in my bathroom for about two weeks, and its made a huge difference to the atmosphere in the room. Each diffuser lasts about 2-3 months, and is perfect for giving a fresh fragrance in any room. I’ll definitely continue using a diffuser because it requires zero effort, unlike a candle which needs to be lit. I’m definitely going to stick to the Teakwood and Tobacco fragrance, especially throughout fall and winter."
"A candle for the rustic whiskey-lovers in our life — P.F. Candle Co.'s amber votive contains rich notes of pear, honey, and whiskey layered with vanilla and tonka."
"Tobacco probably isn’t exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you think of nice scents, but trust, this candle smells warm and spicy and amazing."
"When it comes to candle scents for the home, I definitely prefer richer fragrances – they make my small apartment feel cozier and with the cooler season up ahead, I love the warmth that comes with woody aromas. Even before I first tried the candle, I already knew that I would love it. Excluding the fragrance itself (which contains all of my favorite savors), the apothecary-inspired amber jar makes for a stylish decor piece in any home. The lid is also an excellent touch that helps preserve the longevity of the candle. As its base, Copal is formulated with patchouli, cedar, vanilla and resin. Thanks to the addition of vanilla, there is a very subtle sweetness that ties all of the other notes beautifully together. Along with notes of thyme, amber, cypress, rosemary, pepper and cardamom, this selection is truly the perfect way to set the mood for a snug night in."
"This bold yet complex candle is initially musky, followed by notes of leather, pepper, and tobacco, and includes undertones of teak, sandalwood, orange, and patchouli."
"LOOK—I feel like someone is about to tell me that pumpkin is a fall scent, and to that I say WAKE UP. It’s 2019. You can’t afford to live in a box anymore. Pumpkin desserts are delicious, and I would eat them on any winter day, because they are the epitome of cozy, as is this perfect candle. Ignore my wisdom at your own peril."
"This is one of those candles that completely transports you. Thanks to its bold, woody notes, you can almost reach out and touch the dark mahogany desk and generations-old leather chair that sit quietly in front of a crackling fireplace. The composition of this fragrance includes a base of sandalwood, teak, cedarwood and patchouli, and is finished with notes of black tea, black pepper, orange, leather, tobacco, amber and musk. For someone who is not particularly fond of floral or overtly sweet scents, I find the Teakwood & Tobacco to be a new favorite in my homey apartment space. The one thing that I do find is that it takes a while for the scent to really flourish. For the first few hours or so, the scent is a little weak. However, fear not, the bouquet develops beautifully once the first layer of wax has melted."
"Candles are my everything. I frequently spend a lot of money on a good candle, and love to elevate my home with a fresh scent. When trying out the Sandalwood Rose candle, I instantly got captivated by the sandalwood, amber, out, labdanum and musk base, which gave me all the feels for the fall and winter season. I’m not usually a fan of rose scents, but this one has a light touch of patchouli, iris, cashmere rose which doesn’t make it too sweet, and perfect to keep lit on a day-to-day basis. The burn time is 40-50 hours, which means you can use the candle for a few months and get the most out of the gorgeous fragrance. A huge plus is the aesthetic packaging, which goes perfectly on my shelf at home."
"Outdoorsy folks, this guy's a home staple. It smells mossy and clean, and a bit like a wooded forest. "
"P.F. Candle Co. designs and produces its candles (and all its other scented products, like perfumes and diffusers) right in southern California. The soy wax has a longer burn time than paraffin wax and is also biodegradable, meaning you can easily clean this jar when the candle runs out and reuse it to hold things like bobby pins or cotton balls. Its most popular scents include teakwood and tobacco, amber and moss, and sandalwood rose, shown here."
"A sweet-smelling sandalwood candle with hints of patchouli and rose is perfect for anyone who loves a floral scent but wants just the littlest bit of earthy musk."
"It doesn’t get much more autumnal than apple picking. This has a spicy, warm, mulled cider-like fragrance – we get nutmeg and orange notes – that reminds us of damp leaves underfoot. We found we got more from the scent when we burned it in an enclosed space, such as a bedroom, rather than an open-plan living area."
"These made-in-LA candles look artisanally expensive with their minimalist rough paper labels and amber glass jars, but they’re actually a great deal. For only £24, you can coax in a warm, spicy scent of teakwood and tobacco that’s utterly calming."
"Also known as the “boyfriend candle” because it smells like all things sturdy and reliable: teak, black pepper, tobacco, and leather."
"Soy wax and fragrant oils create a dreamy, woodsy scent with affordable PF candle. If you can't burn a fire at home, light this candle and instantly be transported to a cabin upstate. "
"This is that primo handsome man smell. These wizards managed to bottle perfect boy scent. If you’re trying to have a low maintenance cuffing season I’d recommend just getting this light cologne-y candle and skipping the dating apps."
"Even if it doesn’t quite feel like fall yet, when the warm musky scent of tobacco fills up your space, it definitely will."
