“I’ve had a lifelong passion for the ambience that can only come from candlelight. From the ripe old age of 13 our Sunday family dinners were by candlelight. I was always mesmerized by the beautiful romantic ambience candles brought to our table.

My love affair with candles continued to the day I married David, and our wedding was lit by an abundance of beautiful candles. So special was the evening that I kept all the candles, and they have never been lit since, capturing forever a moment in time of a fabulous night.

In December 2009, I was sent some samples of real wax, flameless candles by an associate from the USA, who was looking for a distributor. I remember thinking ‘sure, feels real, but honestly, who would want a fake candle?’.

At the time, our little boy was 5, and we had stopped using candles since his birth, afraid for his safety. That evening we placed a couple of flameless candles on the mantlepiece above the fireplace, and set the timer to 6 hours. I caught myself during the course of the evening glancing over at the candles, honestly thinking they looked like they were really burning. Later that evening, I walked towards them to blow them out, and stopped in my tracks when I realised what I was doing. I looked around to see if my husband had seen me, because I was so embarrassed. I was still sceptical and walked backwards down the hallway, keeping my eye on the candles, wondering if I should really be turning them off before going to bed. The very next night I went to blow them out again, and that is when I realised that this was truly something special. I knew Enjoy Flameless Candles were going to be a big part of our lives. In January 2010, we became the Australasian distributor.

A year later, through a series of events, we ended up owning the company outright and started our own manufacturing journey. Ten years on and we have sold over 500,000 candles worldwide. With pride and unwavering passion, we continue to bring you the very best, most reliable and aesthetically appealing products.” – Lisa Carrick
