I'm Demi! The only operator, maker, and creator of Poème.
Poème candles are hand poured in small batches on the Gold Coast, Australia. All scents are locally sourced, cruelty free, and carefully blended and curated for you. Each scent is unique on it's own, keeping them simple and eco-friendly.
I only use organic products, such as 100% pure soy wax, organic coconut wax, apricot oil, soy recycled cotton wicks, plant-based fragrances, skin-friendly essential oils, and reusable labels. The packaging for the most part, has been recycled from suppliers. I offer a recycling option which means you can reuse your original Poème vessels to refill with more rather than purchasing a new vessel every time - at a lower cost and less impact to the environment.
My candles are poured into jars, tumblers, and handcrafted ceramic vessels built by me. I also create perfume oils, diffusers and room sprays that are completely non-toxic and plant-based. My handcrafted ceramic will be stocked for only short periods of time and once sold, will not be replicated. All made from Australian clay and glazes and built only by bare hands.
A question I get asked a lot is why I chose the name 'Poème' (pronounced po-em). When I was trying to figure out a name for my business I was learning about apothecary, and realised that candle-making is a perfect combination of apothecary and science, and there is poetry in the union of the two.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to connecting with you
