WAKS - Evie & Yannis - Philosophy & Bio

WAKS is a luxury candle company established in Athens in 2005 by siblings Evie and Yannis Lemos.

Their products are made with the intention of creating scents that will complement our, often busiest, lived environments and offer an aesthetic enhancement to any space.

Each fragrance is individually chosen for its unique characteristics recalling familiar scents such as, nature in summer or bringing to mind the warmth of an intimate room warmed by a winter’s fire.

As they are based in Greece they collaborate with local pottery artists and craftsmen to produce their individually made ceramic and porcelain lines. Their candles are all designed, produced and handpoured in Greece using natural wax and organic cotton wicks.

They hope you enjoy their products and that they bring a sense of calm and happiness to your chosen space.
