After 22 years of hand-painting art for coastal weddings and buying ho-hum candles, James and Michelle decided to create their own line of candles and wax melts. Featuring Michelle’s original artwork and 100% pure soy wax each candle and melt are perfect for adding a splash of fragrance to your home and great for gift giving.


Evoking memories of the beach and seaside holidays, each candle is infused with all of the coastal scents you love.


Whether you are a lake lover, beach bum or fan of New England, our candles will bring your love of travel and relaxation into your home.


Waterfront Candle is about creating a calm and cheerful experience through home fragrance. Our mission is to create whimsical coastal candles and melts for all who cherish positive vibes and holiday memories at the beach. Whether you are an avid traveler dreaming up your next adventure or prefer to relax on the shore. We want to make your everyday savory and full of calm.


In 1979, Michelle Mospens created her first hand poured candle infused with seashells with her mother Pamela in the kitchen. Even today she still enjoys the process of handcrafting candles by pouring hot wax and enjoying the final calming product. Burning coastal theme candles during cold gloomy winter months in Ohio is such a treat.


By day Michelle is an artist, painter and illustrator. By evening she enjoys sunsets, and watching a good mystery.


Her favorite wax fragrances: Lime 'n da Coconut, Beachside Bonfire, Fall at the Cottage, Coconut Colada, Warm Apple Pie, Blueberry, Georgia Peach


By day James enjoys designing, mixing, pouring and handcrafting soy candles with 100% cotton wicks. By evening he also enjoys lakeside sunsets, and playing with their old man pup Spencer.


His favorite wax fragrances: The Captain, Palo Santo, Fresh Cut Christmas Tree, Beachwood Vetiver
