About Werther & Gray


Werther & Gray is our flagship brand, still made in small batches on site at The Candle Parlour in Claymont, DE.

The 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, informed by history and culture, produces themed candles that go beyond scent to offer an engaging aesthetic experience. Most of the candles feature unique labels inspired by vintage designs or artwork. The premium materials we use 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?
