It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is all about celebrating the birth of Christ, the close of one year, and the beginning of another. All the while, we get to see family and friends, many of whom we haven’t seen for a long time. This holiday collection helps you celebrate and welcome people to your home with inviting scents.

Our holiday candle labels were created by Shelbey Tharpe. The Yinzer Christmas Candle label showcases the most iconic place in Pittsburg – the Point – all decked out for Christmas. Most of Shelbey’s artwork for Pittsburgh Candle Works uses paints, but this pen and ink design is perfect for highlighting the simple beauty of the holiday season.

Next, our Steel City Holiday Candle highlights the Steel City skyline. It’s dressed up for winter with winking lights in the night sky.

Finally, Shelbey designed a pen and ink drawing to highlight the snowy winter season. It features our candle barn! This is the location in Rhode Island where our candles are made in 2021, dressed up with snow and a holiday wreath.

Our other Holiday Collection candle set is the Advent Candle Set with artwork by Courtney Masters. She created this hand lettered label design, printed to look like writing on a chalkboard. Classic against the cream-colored candle and clear glass.

With all this in mind, let’s move to the holiday scent details!

Yinzer Christmas

Our best-selling candle (Yinzer) turned Holiday! This candle really is like Christmas poured into a jar. It features scents that work all year long, but particularly well during Christmas time. It’s a festive custom fragrance mix of all things holiday – pine, cinnamon, clove, and eucalyptus.

We created the Advent Candle set to highlight the most important part of the holiday season: celebrating the arrival of Jesus Christ. Each set includes 4 mini tumbler candles and 1 full size candle to light each Sunday of Advent. It also comes with a handmade wooden tray which has a rustic, natural wood finish so it matches any décor and is easy to decorate.
