Our Story

Wick and Glow Candle Company™ is a black owned, female-led candle company based in NJ, founded in 2020 by Brandi and Xavier Munden.

The concept came from the two things they quickly bonded over R&B and candles. After buying countless candles to set a “vibe” in their home, and coming back consistently dissatisfied with the fragrances or burn of the candle, Brandi decided, to start researching, testing and pouring her own. During the pandemic, when everyone else was baking bread and learning how to knit, Brandi tried her hand at candle-making and stopped. After finding supplies in the closet, her husband asked a simple question, “Babe, what are you going to do with all of this candle stuff?” The answer was, “I don’t know, but I think I want to create something that makes people smile.”

In less than a week, the two of them developed a marketing plan and started testing fragrances, wicks and waxes. But they were stuck on what to call them,  until Xavier pointed out that Brandi always poured candles while listening to 80's,90’s & 00 R&B music, and thus their first line was born. They enlisted their two adult sons to assist with inventory, shipping, and fulfillment to make it a fully run family business. Thousands of sales later, they have added reed diffusers and room sprays to their lines and will add body care products in 2024.

The Wick and Glow mission is to enable people to create beautifully fragranced spaces at an affordable price point.
