About Us

Our Mission

L’or de Seraphine crafts aromatic scents to delight the spirit and ignite individuality by conjuring an olfactive experience enhanced by playful prints and colors.

We understand that for many, respite is not always sought or found in quiet places. We embrace creativity as rejuvenation, and work with celebrated designers to decorate the handmade ceramic vessels of our sustainably-sourced palm oil candles. Experimenting with expression allows us to imprint on the spaces in which we live and fill them with delight.

L’or de Seraphine is committed to supporting sanctuaries for others. Through our Sanctuary collection, we are supporting creators and organizers of safe spaces. We acknowledge that many have been left in the dark and without the support they need to thrive. By partnering with a wide range of nonprofits, we hope to illuminate a path for all to live their most vibrant lives.

Who We Are


L’or de Seraphine is a truly artisanal home fragrance brand, crafting bouquets of scent with unique prints. L’or de Seraphine believes that a candle can be elevated and eclectic. L’or de Seraphine provides one-of-a-kind fragrances for people who find delight and respite through color and scent to complement their own originality and to create their personal sanctuary.

Name Origin

L’OR (:noun) french

Gold is a precious metal that in medieval times was often seen as beneficial for the health, in the belief that something so rare and beautiful could not be anything but healthy.

SERAPHINE (:proper noun) french

Hebrew origins, meaning “burning ones”, a name used in the Bible for the heavenly winged angels surrounding the throne of God. The “Seraph” Angels are regarded as Guardians who provide warmth and comfort.

The Founders

Meet Dara and Laina

As daughters of an interior designer, Dara and Laina grew up with color and print as their first languages. As they began decorating their own homes, and creating sanctuaries that reflect their expressive taste, Dara and Laina noticed that in order to find the olfactory experience they were seeking, they had to settle for minimalist candles. When did the uniformity of minimalism usurp individuality? Instead of settling, they decided to indulge their individuality and L’or de Seraphine began.

Sustainability Efforts

The World is our sanctuary

Our candles are not only good for you, they are good for your home and the environment too. We have carefully selected each of our ingredients to give you wonderful aromatherapy benefits while remaining sustainably sourced and having a clean burn.

Responsible Sourcing

Each and every ingredient used to create L’or de Seraphine products is carefully selected both to provide a quality product and ensure that we are protecting our ultimate sanctuary — the planet. Our wax is an RSPO certified palm wax blend that is both sustainably sourced and has a clean and stable burn. Our wick is organic cotton, and our candles are all phthalates and parabens free.

Giving Back

We Rise by Lifting Others Up

Recognizing that not everyone is fortunate enough to have sanctuary and understanding that society has left too many in the dark, we use our platform to shine light on marginalized communities. By actively supporting organizations that foster sanctuary and create safe and inspiring spaces for all living beings, we are helping to illuminate new paths for all to live vibrant lives.
