Amy's Country Candles® Fragrances was founded in 1999 by Amy Lassere Benoit.  Amy started making her first candles at home - along the banks of Bayou Lafourche in Thibodaux, Louisiana.  Through research and experimentation, she created her most famous and best-selling candle, Amy's Vanilla Sugar Cookie™.  Immediately, it was a big hit and people were begging for more!  

What started out as a small, home-based business, quickly grew into a great company, which continues to grow and thrive along the Bayou. We now produce over 30 scents, including special scents for the Mardi Gras season and other holidays.  

In the year 2000, Amy opened seven stores and became one of the fastest-growing Louisiana manufacturers. Amy's Country Candles® was honored to receive the Lantern Award presented by Governor Mike Foster. 

Our "fabuleux" candle ladies still pour Amy's Country Candles® by hand and triple scent them with tender loving care to bring our wonderful customers the best candle we can produce. Now famous worldwide and enjoyed by thousands, we strive to not only bring wonderful scents to your home but provide great customer service and always with a smile. Please take time to look through our website or visit an Amy's Country Candles® store or merchant near you.

Our Mission remains to serve God first and foremost, while providing the best hand poured, triple-scented candles in the market.

SHERITA'S TESTIMONIAL

Hi Ms. Amy, I am so glad that I was introduced to your candles at least 5 years ago.  My cousin from Mississippi relocated to Illinois for her job and was visiting Louisiana at the time for her job.  One day while visiting her, her house smelled so good I asked what kind of candle are you burning? She told me Amy’s Country Candles it was Vanilla Sugar cookies and she also had Birds of Paradise. She gave me a mason jar of each. I said how am I going to get some and they are in Louisiana. She said you can order they will ship and I have been a customer of yours ever since. I love your candles...

CAJUN WIFEY'S TESTIMONIAL
