The Lys Collective


Six Irresistible scents

Choosing the perfect candle is a lot like finding a partner or discovering a new place to live. Your first impressions might deceive you, and something outside the ordinary might make you feel right at home. We like to experience scent as a feeling, and let our perfect fragrance choose us.

Indulgent and inviting, wrap yourself in warmth and comfort.

Mulled spices. Pine. Smoke. Snuggle up by the fire and get toasty.

Spiced and smoldering. He’s around the world and right at home all at once.

Four walls transform into open air with a scent masculine, feminine, and earthy.

Rich. Warm. Enchanting. Inspire romance with a scent that’s soft and sultry.

Find comfort in the familiar. Explore new depths with the undiscovered.

Savor the moment

There’s beauty in simplicity, and there’s magic in the mundane. Whether you’re looking for a hostess gift that will warm a space, or looking to make your own home a little bit cozier, we believe candles are the perfect way to settle into a space and soak in the surroundings. 

Our multi-dimensional scents were designed to mix the familiar with something fresh. The mixed notes and subtle finishes will transport you somewhere new, and somehow make you feel right at home all at once.

Where you've seen The Lys Collective

“The Lys Collective began as a pandemic hobby and transformed into a passionate brand. Drawing inspiration from the Danish tradition of hygge, owner Melissa began making hand poured and sustainably sourced candles from her NYC apartment. With scents rooted in nature, these unique candles foster an atmosphere of calm and cosiness.”
