About Werther & Gray

Werther & Gray is a small artisan candle company located in Northern Delaware.

The name combines two literary characters: Werther from Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther, and Dorian Gray from Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray. Like its namesake, Werther & Gray is rooted in the values of Romanticism, with styles and themes that emphasize aesthetic beauty and harken back to ages past.

Since all perfumery, design work and production are completed by me, the owner, the brand reflects the creative vision of a single artisan.

Despite its small size, Werther & Gray has shipped candles all over the world and been stocked by numerous museums, cultural institutions, and high-end gift shops since opening for business in 2015.
