"Scents stay with you - lingering in your hair, your clothes, and your memories"

Amanda McIntyre is a nurse practitioner with a passion for all things that smell good. Having always enjoyed the scents that change with each season, she decided to craft a collection of candles to bring those seasonal scents to your home. She named her business partly after her dog Olive, who helps by sniff testing each candle. Amanda's husband Markus is known to pitch in, too!

Woodsmoke & Olive's candles are made from 100% soy-based waxes. The wicks are crafted from high-performance fibres and natural materials, so your candle will burn slowly with less soot deposit. Her original classics like Roasted Marshmallow and Sugared Maple will transport your mind to a Canadian fireside.
