About Werther & Gray


Werther & Gray is a very small artisan candle company located in Claymont, Delaware.

Our name combines two literary characters that bookend the Romantic era – from Goethe's The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774) and Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890).

The Werther & Gray brand produces themed candles that go beyond scent to offer an engaging aesthetic experience. Most of our candles feature unique labels inspired by vintage designs or artwork, which connect our fragrances with interesting concepts. The materials we have carefully chosen allow us to achieve vibrant colors, elegant designs and superior burn performance.

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. There are many valuable ways to interact with the past. Werther & Gray's audience is a varied group of history buffs, romantics, aesthetes, dreamers, hipsters, artists and old souls. Which one are you?
