Our ambition

Bolsius, for all of us

For over 150 years we've been crafting candles to honour our heritage and to ensure the highest quality. Through the magic of the flame, we create billions of moments to enable everyone to reconnect with ourselves and our loved ones. While doing so, we take responsibility in contributing to a better planet. For now, and for generations to come.

Our mission

We are here to create products of superior quality that share the magic of the flame that reconnect people with themselves and their loved ones, for now and for generations to come.

Our objective

To be the leading candle company in Europe with love for People and the Planet.

We strongly believe that it is our responsibility to keep our world a liveable, healthy, and safe place for future generations.
