Christmas 1969. Seventeen-year-old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melted some crayons to make her a candle. A neighbor saw it and convinced Mike to sell the candle to her. With that small stake, he bought enough wax to make two candles – one for his mom, and another to sell. That was the birth of Yankee Candle. Yankee Candle has become the world’s most-recognised name in the candle business and the best loved candle brand by sharing our customers’ “passion for fragrance” in every product we bring to market.
