I am Josyane, a French entrepreneur of Cape Verdean and Guinean origin (Guinea-Bissau) and founder of Candles Studio. Loving finance, I love juggling numbers, analyzing and managing client portfolios. I have always wanted to be an entrepreneur in a field that fascinates me. A lifelong candle addict, the idea of creating Candles Studio came to me in 2019, when I adopted my little Rio, a young 2-year-old Dalmatian. I was afraid that my house smell like the dog, I decided to design my own candles, because regularly consuming scented candles from well-known and recognized brands became quite a budget for me. On the advice of my family and friends, I decided to take the plunge and make my passion a brand!
Starting a business is good, but not alone. For me, every businesswoman has her loyal ally. Mine is Inny, whom I met a few years earlier while on vacation with friends. Originally from Ivorian and Cameroonian, we quickly became friends: common values and desires, but above all an undeniable bond. Although she is not a candle addict like me, she did not hesitate for a second to follow me on this crazy adventure. Communicating at heart, and an ambassador of "I consume healthy and natural", having her by my side was obvious.
The concept of making it an organic and committed brand came naturally to us because we have always wanted to be ecologically and humanely active.
Candles studio is just a little bit of us at home!
