Welcome to Wandering Lark!

Our candles are designed, hand poured, and shipped from our studio in Burlington, NC. "Nothing is more memorable than a smell. One scent can be unexpected, momentary and fleeting, yet conjure up a childhood summer beside a lake in the mountains." - Diane Ackerman

We couldn't agree more with Ms. Ackerman.  Scents have always had a way of bringing back memories of people or places. They can take you back to a moment you thought you had forgotten. 

Thank you for visiting Wandering Lark.  We hope you'll find scents that remind you of times past, or are a part of future memories and moments.

All of our labels are illustrated and designed in house.  We strive to make our candles a beautiful addition to your home from the fragrance to the design.
