WHO ARE WE THOUGH?
HOW WE GOT GRIZZLY
What started out as a hobby in a small Brooklyn kitchen, developed into something unprecedented for us. Like most people, we loved fragrance and obsessively hoarded dozen of candles while always scouring the internet for the most unique scents. Problem was: the bigger and more commercial candle companies only sold the most generic scents, and we refused to spend $60 – $75+ for a diverse candle at the more high-end shops.
So, one evening, on a whim, we decided to mix some oils together and come up with the scents that we wanted. The ones our friends asked for. The weird, the different, the nostalgic. Fragrances that were more interesting than Apple Pumpkin or Vanilla Bean. Scent is very subjective and can easily evoke emotion with memory. That’s what we set out to do.
And that’s how Grizzly was born.
And we know we aren’t like every other Home Fragrance company out there.
We’re essentially all about being different.
We celebrate individuality and self-expression, all the while poking fun at ourselves and the ridiculousness that is our quintessential American culture. We’re all about fun with a capital F.
We are definitely that freak in the neighborhood of scents & fragrances, and that’s ok. That’s the point.
And while we’re definitely all about a good time (duh), we’re still very serious about the quality and craftsmanship of all of our products. Everything that we make (especially our candles) are authentically and individually handmade right here in Brooklyn, New York, (but in a bigger workshop kitchen now!) with all-natural and sustainable ingredients.
Think of us as that cute, but weird, Hipster guy that you always see in your neighborhood, we’re just as cool, only not as pretentious… and we always smell good! 😉
Buy them for yourself or give them away as gifts, but, now regardless of your background (or hair preference), everyone can Get Grizzly.
OUR GRIZZLY OATH
All of our candles are completely “bare”, meaning; they are made with 100% natural soy wax. No blends, fillers, compounds, or preservatives, just natural pure soy. They are handmade and hand-poured which means no candle physically looks the same.
All of our fragrance oils are 100% phthalate free with no additives or chemicals.
We use 100% flat cotton wicks with a zinc core that reduces mushrooming, soot and smoke. It also makes self-trimming easy and effortless.
Even our boxes are made from natural recycled paper and our labels made with chemical free adhesive.
