Our original name was Colonial Candle of Cape Cod, and our mark bears the 4 C’s for that reason. Since then, we have evolved the 4 C’s mark to stand for the values of our founder, and after more than a century continue to this day: 


Innovative and original, Colonial Candle embraces creativity through authentic fragrance, design and content. 


Resolute and tenacious, Colonial Candle was built from a strong, fearless woman’s dream.  


Dauntless and bold, Colonial Candle stands behind its products and convictions assuring that they are genuine and forthright.  


Expressive and colorful, Colonial Candle tells a passionate story about embracing color in your life literally and figuratively. 



Founded in 1909 by Mabel Baker, Colonial Candle of Cape Cod® was the first U.S. candle company founded and owned by a woman. The brand was inspired by its location in Hyannis, Massachusetts, which was the second oldest colony in the country. Today, we keep the brand out of respect for this celebrated pioneer, the first woman to own a company in the United States.

Baker started by making hand crafted bayberry taper candles as gifts for her friends and family. Her bayberry candles were in such high demand that Baker began selling them in stores on Cape Cod and quickly expanded nationwide. 

Colonial Candle® classic wax and home fragrance products continue to be proudly made in the USA. The candle that started it all, the bayberry taper, is still available, more than a century after its inception.
