Hi, I'm Shannon - the owner, founder, creator, maker and everything else in between at Wicks & Archer HQ. Wicks & Archer was founded after I gave birth to my son, Archer at 27 weeks back in May 2020. After being a long time lover of home fragrances but being a new mum & a new mum to an extremely premature baby, I decided to learn how to create our own and without all of the nasties. I wanted to be 100% confident in knowing exactly what went into anything that I was exposing our family too.
Along the way, I learnt all about the scientific side that went into creating a "candle" and realised it was so much more than that. I fell in love with finding new fragrances as well as creating and perfecting my own recipes. So after a year of making them for myself, I decided it was time to share my love with you all while still continuing to learn, exploring new ideas and expand our ranges.
At Wicks & Archer, I want our brand to authentically show our values and that's why our products are made with natural fragrances, non-toxic soy wax and are vegan friendly and cruelty free. I believe in doing our part at minimising the impact on our earth while being sustainable with our designs and packaging. All of our materials are sourced from Australian businesses who always share the same values as we do. Our products are all handmade with love by yours truely. I am proud to say that Wicks & Archer is solely woman run, owned and created.
I want our Wicks & Archer products to be the fragrance that ties to all of your amazing memories - to instantly take you right back to that time in your life. Whether that be Christmas morning, the day you bring home your new baby or puppy, the smell of your first home or even a simple birthday dinner celebration that you shared with your family and more.
Let us help you create those memories.
