Noir Lux Candle Co. was born a labor of love, and has slowly but surely grown into a booming small business and now brick-and-mortar studio and apothecary.

At Noir Lux, we believe in self-care, good vibes, and nostalgia. We are a black-owned, woman-owned business. Each item that we create is handcrafted in small batches, specifically with you in mind.

We've shipped candles out to happy customers all across the country, and our candle bar provides the opportunity for guests to choose their vessels and fragrances to curate their own custom candles.

Colina Bruce, Founder and Chandler, worked in the education sector for over 15 years before opening Noir Lux Candle Bar. It has been her life's work to advance equity and excellence for ALL scholars and families, specifically through finding ways to center scholar and family voice. Additionally, she has been invested in exploring ways to celebrate culture and build community and considers Noir Lux to be a hub and incubator space in the eye of the needle. 

When she's not working or in the kitchen being a candle scientist, you might find Colina supporting her hubby at a live music show, running around making moments and memories with her kids, eating any kind of seafood, brunching or happy hour-ing with her girls, teaching as an adjunct professor or at home with her family watching thriller movies or murder mysteries.
