About Us

behind the scenes at CandleFind

The Beginnings

In 2003, Carolyn O’Conner decided to share her passion for scent & candles with the world. She wanted others to be able to come together and discuss all things scent-related with people who would understand. Who would “get it.” Little did she know just how much this meeting space was needed…and CandleFind was born.

CandleFind grew by leaps & bounds under Carolyn’s watchful eye. She eventually turned over the reigns to her friend & scent lover, Christina, in 2007. By then, CandleFind had hundreds of reviews on the Review Board and a super active forum. CandleFind was known as THE site for candle lovers…for good reason!

Best Friends

It was only a matter of time before Christina & Andrea met – avid candle nuts and true soul sisters. Together, they saw Candlefind through its continued growth with newsletters, giveaways, sales, a social media presence, and a blog. Though they each live miles apart, they continue to chat regularly about the next best candle or scent.

In 2019, Andrea took the reigns of CandleFind and Candle Scoop (the sister blog), with Christina’s help and guidance. CandleFind is firmly committed to its roots of helping the consumer know where to best spend their hard-earned dollars when shopping for scents.
