At FOS, we believe in the power of scent to create delightful sensory experiences and connections to physical spaces. We place importance on sustainability and value careful ingredient selection and responsibly sourced materials.

All of our candles are hand blended and poured in small batches in Montreal. We use a blend of soy and coconut wax, which is plant-based and biodegradable. Unlike paraffin wax that is used in many candles on the market today, it burns clean and does not produce harmful chemicals or soot.

For our unique scents, we use a combination of phthalate and paraben-free fragrance oils and pure essential oils. Our cotton wicks contain no lead or zinc.  





After nearly a decade working in marketing and design, Tess started FOS in 2020 from her apartment as a way to express her different inspirations and convey a passion for creating sensory experiences that are familiar, spark delight, and enhance every space.

It all began with an obsessive path of discovery and study of fragrance and candle making. Therein was born a line of premium products that are clean burning, plant-based, and infused with high quality oils.
