About The Sylvie Ann Company

Like most of the world, 2020 has had its ups and downs for our family. However, I’m grateful that our journey has inspired me to create The Sylvie Ann Company.

Sylvie Ann is a woman-owned business that produces all-natural soy wax candles and other fragrance-based products. Each candle and wax melt is handpoured in our home-based studio in Wellsville, Pennsylvania, and made in small batches using high-end, Phthalate-free fragrance and essential oils to ensure a clean burn.

Family is very important to my husband, Adam, and I, which inspired our company name. I have fond memories of my grandparents growing up, and both of my grandmothers meant a lot to me. So, when it came time to choose a name for my company, that’s where I started. My paternal grandmother’s name is Sylvia Mae (fun fact: we share the same middle name), and my maternal grandmother’s name is Patricia Ann. Unfortunately, both of them are no longer with us, so in a way, this company is to honor their memory. I hope that I can make them proud.

I also loved the name Sylvie Ann because Sylvie is the French form of Sylvia, which means “woods, forest.” Adam and I are relatively sensitive to strong scents. For example, during the Holidays when the retail stores have the cinnamon pine cones in the entryways, instant headache. Or, for my husband, it’s walking into a Kirklands. I’m sure many husbands can relate. Because of that, I wanted to keep the scents clean, light, natural, and earthy. I wanted to be able to bring the familiar smells of nature into our customer’s homes. Using soy wax, we can ensure that we’re producing high-quality products with renewable and sustainable materials grown by American farmers.

I hope that our products help make your house a home. Thank you for supporting my small business and my family. Enjoy!
