Candles of New Zealand is a brand of National Candles Limited, operated by the McLean Family and based in Wellington, New Zealand.
National Candles history can be traced back as far as the 1920's when 'Prices Candles’, a division of the Shell Oil Company set up their factory in New Zealand.
Edgar (Steve) Silestean founded the business under the name E. Silestean & Son Limited in 1969. Mr Silestean built his business and developed the brand name 'National Candles'. Edgar had a vision to provide his customers with quality candlesby using only traditional candle making methods and the finest raw materials available.
The McLean family acquired the business in 1996 when Edgar was forced to sell due to his health, and have continued with Edgars vision. The McLean family underwent shifting the factory in 1997 to its current idyllic central city location. This is where the magic happens.
