All Motor City Candleworks products are made in the motor  city of the world,  Detroit, Michigan USA. Everything we make, we make by hand. Our candles are hand-poured and our incense is hand-dipped. We affix labels by hand, and we package by hand. We believe some things are still made better the old-fashioned way.

Our fragrances are named for people and places and things throughout Michigan. We're proud of our great, Great Lake State, and we love to brag about it.  Whether you're partial to the thumb, or you call yourself a yooper, it's likely we've got a fragrance for you!

About Us

Motor City Candleworks began doing business in 2004. Originally, candles were created with unique fragrance names that honored local historical figures and places. In 2008, after many requests from customers, we began producing Motor City Incense, which is now available at more than 200 stores throughout Michigan.

We may be a little silly in creating fragrance names, but we're dead serious about our attention to quality. All of our products are made by hand in the great state of Michigan using only the finest materials.


Life is serious. Our fragrance names are not. But we are dead serious when we tell you that we look for and use only the best, highest grade oils in making our fragrances.

Some of our favorite fragrance names appear below, but we've got about 60 in all. Product pages will show you which fragrances are available in each product. You can hover over the names below to get descriptions of the scents.
