Our Motto

Smell Great. Relax.

Welcome to Big Whiff! The home of everything that smells great. Plain and simple! We passionately believe that you can scent your life with products that are all-natural, cruelty free and handmade.

(We also passionately believe in weekend getaways, long naps, good food, great friends, long talks, and being diligent in all that we strive to achieve.)

We are a family business established in 2014. Meet Matt, Lindsay, Oliver, Keira, and our fur baby, Mac. Together we create true to life scents for an amazing fragrance experience every time! Our goal is to offer the highest quality candles with an unforgettable aroma at affordable prices. We want our fragrances to "take you there", whether it be to an island vacation, a coffee shop, a brand-new car, or into the movies.

So how did we get started? From our very first day, we’ve always tried to make decisions that our customers could be proud of. We’ve never use ingredients from animal sources and all our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. Every item in our store is handcrafted and sealed with our Big Whiff stamp of approval.
Our home-based shop started "all because two people fell in love"! After four years of being happily married, to our surprise that little pregnancy stick tested positive, and our whole life was about to change. At the time, Matt and I were both in the welding field. Because of our desire to give our new baby all our love and attention and the best life possible, being a working mom was not an option. So, the wheels started turning, we got a little creative, and tried a few work at home crafts. We tried baby shoes, dog collar covers, up-cycled paper art... but nothing stuck. Then we thought of candles! We always enjoyed the inviting aroma and ambiance of a lit candle, so why not make them ourselves! The candle had to fit some high standards first. It had to be highly fragranced, have an appealing aroma that enveloped the entire home, a long-burn time, a beautiful color, a fun and creative name, and affordable price. Some high standards, but we were up for the challenge. And to our delight, we could check every one of those criteria off our list! We are confident that you will be completely satisfied with our product!

Fast forward to the present, we have a happy, healthy, beautiful baby boy and girl! They are the love our life! They are the motivation behind our shop to create an amazing product that makes our customers want to come back for more. Matt and I create the candles from our home-based shop. We are constantly looking for ways to better our shop and our products! 

Your business and support will make our happy little family even happier!! It is our dream that someday our passion to create candles can support our family! We appreciate each and every order. We sell our candles at a few local locations in our small hometown of Kittanning, PA. We opened up an Etsy shop at the beginning of 2015 in order to reach an even larger audience, then Amazon, and now our favorite platform, our website. To us, selling online has been a window to the world – it brought us the opportunity to grow at our own speed, be confident in what we do, and be everywhere. Being in contact with our clients is important to us, and we try always to give the best solution to any questions, as if we were talking face to face. 


Take your time, relax more, and don't forget to take a Big Whiff!
