Stink's is a cute little candle shop based out of Columbus, Ohio, celebrating their 7th year slinging fine home fragrances. What started out as a personal passion project and way to give unique gifts morphed into a sophisticated, but accessible offering of beautiful home fragrance.
Who We Are
Shop owner, Courtney
A home decor and dog obsessed goofball. For as long as she can remember, she's has been obsessed with interior design and how a space can make you feel. As a little girl, she chose unique bedroom color palettes and found great joy helping her mom decorate houses as they renovated. Today she loves being able to bring a small part of her love for interiors into others' homes through Stink's.
When she is not candle making, you will likely find Court with dogs at her feet and a glass of wine in her hand at her family's cabin in the woods. Fave fragrance: Oakmoss & Amber. Fave wine: Hess Cabernet.
aka Stink. or Stanley Marie when he is bad. Stink is the tennis ball loving, double knee replaced, oldest child of the house and the namesake of Stink's Candles. He has a younger brother, Remy, four times his size but 100% his subordinate. Stan enjoys a life of leisure while his family’s world revolves around him. Fave fragrance: Northern Pine. Favorite drink: water.
Giving a shit about the bigger picture.
Since the beginning, we thoughtfully consider environmental impacts and personal wellness. That’s why we use plant-based wax, cotton wicks, fragrances infused with essential oils, and clear, unpainted glass vessels. We never include wax dyes, preservatives or fragrances with phthalates, because that would just be gross.
Always a focus on fragrance
You won’t find any basic vanilla here at Stink’s. Instead you’ll find nature-inspired fragrances that blend effortlessly into a home. From earthy to floral, we offer a carefully curated selection of year-round candles that are sophisticated and pack just the right amount of punch to fill a room. Plus every few months we offer a new collection inspired by the time of year. Queue the summer hydrangea, autumn spice, or northern pine.
After a few years of balancing a full-time job and a growing business, Court learned that, for her, balance is key. As a one woman show she needs time to play with the dogs, spend time with loved ones, and curl up on the couch watching Real Housewives to keep her sanity. So while she loves this little shop and all the people she meets along the way, she made the decision not to scale. Instead, each month she makes microbatches of Stink's signature candles and botanical mixes to scratch that creative itch while balancing life.
