Alixx is a family business founded in Waterloo, Belgium in 2009 and created by Alix de La Mensbruge. She wanted to produce a candle as beautiful as it smelled. In 2014, Alix decided to cross over the Atlantic and set a new workshop up in Miami, Florida. Alixx continues to celebrate its European roots and combines the best of European artisan craftsmanship while being made in the USA.
Alixx scented candles and reed diffusers are hand poured, assembled and packed in the United States.
Many customers were confused by the old names that were product descriptors. So last year, we simplified the names of our candles to small, medium, large and extra large. Our beautiful candle vases remain the same and continue to be approximately 7cm, 10 cm, 14 cm and 18 cm high respectively for our cylinder collection and 7cm, 11 cm and 14 cm high for our ballon collection.
Alixx returned to our French roots with new fragrance names for our beautiful parfum fragrances. Tea Time is now l’Heure du Thé, Sea Breeze is now l’Air de la Mer, and Teck is now Fève de Tonka.
Yes we do! Teck is now named ‘Fève de Tonka’ meaning Tonka Bean and is poured in our clear bubble glass – available in both collections in several sizes.
About our materials
Alixx scents are created by Master Perfumers, which means they are trained experts from the perfume world. Each fragrance is complex and developed to create a unique and delicate experience. Our scents are safe to human health and are prop 65 compliant. Each perfume is composed of essential oils and the ingredients have never been tested on animals.
We use a premium vegetable blend to allow a clean and healthy burn. Our wax is colorless, odorless and has a clean white color – all while allowing the best release of our perfumes.
The Alixx wicks are made of the finest cotton from the United States.
The Alixx vases are handcrafted by master glass blowers in Europe. This artisanal technique has been transmitted from generation to generation and allows the creation of the finest pieces of art. Please note that due to this ancient artisanal technique, each vase is unique in its own way. The colors and dimensions may slightly differ from one to another. We find beauty in their variations and are not considered a defect.
About our candles
In order to get the best experience out of your Alixx candles, follow these simple steps.
When first lighting the candle, please allow more than an hour of burn time to completely melt the top of the candle. A complete wax pool across the top of the candle will stop the candle from tunneling which can happen if the candle isn’t burned long enough on its first lighting.
Trim the wicks. Wicks should be trimmed to be about 1/8”long. If a wick is too long, it will have a darker flame and soot can accumulate. Do not burn the candle for more than 4 hours. After 4 hours, the wicks should be trimmed.
Keep the candle away from air vents, windows or drafts. Uneven air flow causes a candle to tunnel. If you notice the flame flickering, or it appears to be tunneling, move the candle to a place with less air movement.
Of course! Reuse and Recycle is one of the foundations of our brand. Give your vases another life and reuse them for other purposes. Maybe a drinking glass, a flower vase, an orchid pot or a make up holder. Let your creativity run free!

About our diffusers
Pour the fragrance oil into the glass container and add the reed sticks for 5 minutes. Then rotate the sticks so that the bottom of the reeds is now the top. The sticks will soak up the fragranced oil and diffuse the scent into the air. Put your diffuser in a place where there is air flow in order to get the best scented experience. We recommend that you continue to reverse the sticks once a week to prevent the oil from blocking the tiny holes in the reeds.
Please keep out of the reach of children and pets. Do not drink the liquid and avoid contact with your eyes and skin. Please remember that the liquid may stain.
