About Us

Purgatory Candle Co. is a WOC owned, horror inspired candle company based in downtown Los Angeles. Our candles and wax melts are made with 100% soy wax, and are hand poured and designed in small batches. Owners Jasmine and Lesly work closely together to create candles that are unique and smell amazing - but most importantly inspired by all things horror and macabre.

Jasmine (left) is the Mastermind behind making our fragrances and molds come to life! Through her curation of scents and wax formulation, she makes all of our candle creations a reality. Jasmine carefully formulates each and every batch of Candles to insure our products look and smell the way that they do. Jasmine spends her days (and sometimes nights) working on film and television sets as a professional costumer. She has a few horror titles under her belt and has even hung out with The Warrens and Annabelle, no big deal.

Lesly (right) is the visual mastermind behind Purgatory Candle Co. The little flame ghost logo you all love, she designed that - as well as all of the other labels, the website and stickers. Lesly also creates the videos and content that you see on social media. During the day Lesly is a freelance designer and art director, creating everything from packaging to websites for all of her clients. However, her favorite thing to do is work alongside Jasmine to create products for each of you.
