The Joseph Thomas True Candles products were created in small town America by 2 guys. They were able to take these candles out and sell them all over the U.S. including Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Ritz Carlton, and Peacock Alley to name a few. Unfortunately, one of the creators died in a house fire in Dec. 2008. The company shut down after the other owner quit.
A local couple bought the company because his wife LOVED the products so much! It re-opened in 2009. Due to a series of mishaps and circumstances after the death of one of the owners and the loss of a major account, the company is eager to spread the word that the candles are again available in the marketplace.
Our review: These candles are amazing! They are soft burning and not at all smokey. They have beautiful fragrances and a variety of sizes from which to choose. We would highly recommend anyone interested in a quality candle as a gift or for themselves, check out True Candles at www.josephthomastrue.com .
