HISTORY. NOSTALGIA. CANDLES.
Werther & Gray is named after literary characters that bookend the Romantic era – taken from Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774) and Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890).
The Werther & Gray brand, informed by history and culture, aims to create themed candles that go beyond just scent to offer a quality aesthetic experience. Most of our candles feature unique labels inspired by vintage designs or artwork. The sense of smell is so often associated with memory, and each one of our candles is meant to evoke a memory, even if just from your own imagination.
Our audience is a varied group of history buffs, romantics, aesthetes, dreamers, hipsters, artists and old souls. There are many valuable ways to interact with the past. Which one are you?
