About Us

Modern Candle & Fragrance development
Our History

How we started

Candle experts and progressive innovators, Armik and Nora Pirijian, began their candle journey over 30 years ago. After immigrating to the United States, they continue to build upon their experience and, after years of hard work and dedication, are now highly regarded as experts within the industry.

Established as masters in their field, Armik and Nora’s inspiration for the design and creation of original, pioneering formulations derive from a desire and determination to offer the best and highest quality product available. They continue to seek new knowledge of trends and cultures from around the globe. As entrepreneurs and innate creators, they envision beauty in all things, from the beginning of the process until the final product comes to fruition.
