Consciously crafting quality products since 2009 to give our customers the best value for their money
Our Story - Words from our Founder/CEO
I’m Shane, fragrance ambassador and Founder/CEO of Couture Brands. Our company story begins in 2009 when my obsession for aromatic fragrances drove me to experiment with pouring candles in my then-South Boston kitchen, which soon resulted in our original 5th & Madison Candle Collection. Throughout that first year, I took 5th & Madison on the road, driving up to 900 miles to feature our products at girls nights out events across the country. Our small business has grown from a single pop-up 5th & Madision booth at Bryant Park’s Winter Market in 2010, to the establishment of multiple groundbreaking Couture Brands - 5th & Madison, Soy Logic Apothecary, and Thompson and Bleecker - sold across 4 NYC pop-up markets since 2015, to a year-round store in Manhattan as of June 2021. Our mission has always been to bring you quality, hand-crafted products at your convenience. As Couture Brands develops into a lifestyle brand company, we seek to make everything you need that’ll guarantee you and your home look and smell sensational all accessible in one location. As a result, we are excited to have launched our jewelry company B.Beaux designs and our line of inspirational t-shirts Shane & Co NYC to bring you more well-made lifestyle items from your known and trusted candle man.
Our Commitment to our Customers and Creating Quality Products
We love to spoil our customers. We care about providing you a meaningful and personalized customer experience even after you’ve acquired our products. We pride ourselves on building direct relationships with our customers instead of with buyers or big box companies so we can craft beautiful, quality products based on what YOU want. We see our customers as our investors and stockholders, and we delight in not having to answer to a board of directors so as to not compromise on our value or excellence. To make sure you get more value for your money, we work one-on-one with frangrancers to develop scents and fly around the world sourcing ethically-made packaging and glassware. Our candles, made with food and cosmetic grade waxes, are poured by hand. We truly make everything with love.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
Couture Brands believes we should help fight climate change by reducing our carbon footprint. We are intentional about using recycled materials whenever possible in the development and production of our boxes, papers, and glassware. We encourage you to reuse and repurpose our materials even after you’ve enjoyed our products. Our candle glasses are gorgeous holders for makeup brushes, dried flowers, shells and rocks, or other decorations. Some crafty decoupage can turn our packaging into a special box for a birthday or holiday gift. Get creative and continue to reuse-reduce-recycle!
