A Message from the Front Desk

As avid world travelers (and self-proclaimed luxury hotel experts), we know that nothing compares to the thrill of walking into a hotel lobby. Something about stepping foot inside a luxury hotel in a new city transports you a second time—filling you with this sense of anticipation and excitement, while also telling your body and mind to relax and let go.

Hotel Lobby Candle was born from the belief that you don’t need to get on a plane to capture the essence of a luxurious getaway.

Our Origin Story

In 2020, COVID-19 brought the world to a standstill.

One of life’s pleasures we missed the most was the magic of a long-awaited vacation (and we were pretty sure we weren’t alone).

So we had an idea: If we couldn’t leave our homes, could we bring the five-star hotel experience to us?

Each candle is inspired by scent memories from some of our favorite places...

The electric energy of Miami.
The mystery and romance of Paris.
The balmy, be-happy vibes of the Caribbean.

And we’re just getting started.

Our candles are completely free of chemicals and toxins, yet maintain the intoxicating scent you’d expect from a luxury candle.

We use an all-natural soy wax (made with US-grown soybeans) and lead-free cotton wicks. Our candles are also free of phthalates, parabens, and sulfates, and synthetic dyes.

Meet Our Founder

I’m Lindsay, founder of Hotel Lobby Candle. I spent a decade writing and editing for magazines like Town & Country, Vogue, and Elle Decor (to date, I’ve traveled to 62 countries).

Today, I apply that same reporter’s approach to my lifestyle blog & Instagram account, where I share carefully-vetted product recommendations, beauty tips and travel advice to a community of nearly 200,000 people.

I live between New York City and Miami with my husband (who is also my business partner) and our mini long-haired Dachshund. Nothing brings me more joy than ordering a martini in a hotel lobby bar...and turn-down service is my love language.

I wanted to create a candle that transported people without ever having to leave home. It needed to be beautiful, smell incredible and, most importantly, be of the highest quality.

I hope you love them!
