Aspen Bay Candles was founded in 1978 by Roberta Man as Candles by Bert. After years of experimentation, Roberta developed a votive wax formulation that provided truly superior performance. In subsequent years, additional products fueled strong growth in the line, and in 2001, Tom Reed purchased Aspen Bay.
In July 2012, we re-branded our parent company and are now more clearly identifying the parent company that produces Aspen Bay Candles as DPM Fragrance. DPM Fragrance is a fragrance house that specialized in candles and other fragranced products that are proudly hand poured at our plant in Starkville, Mississippi. The result is a line of premium candles with quality you can see and most importantly smell.
Along with producing upscale, quality products, Aspen Bay has made the decision to be as environmentally conscious as possible. This commitment is seen most notably in our recycled glass jars and recycled steel lids. We also try and buy locally whenever possible.
