Meet the Makers
Black Moth Candle Company was founded by Saint Petersburg artist Irma Diaz in 2013. Her passion for creating high-quality, beautiful products is still evident as each of her signature scent blends smell delicious and burn beautifully.
In February 2022, the company was acquired by Chrystal Lea Nause & Joshua Gates of Dark Matter Oddities & Artisan Collective (New Orleans, LA). A full line of Black Moth candles, wax melts, and incense can be found in this French Quarter oddities shop (see "Stockists" page for more info).
Our recipes continue to be carefully crafted and tested to bring to you the highest quality of unique fragrances available in candles, wax melts, and incense. Everything is created in small batches by Chrystal and her mother, Mary, to ensure consistent, high-quality products.
