Beautiful swarovski pearls and crystal jewellery for bridesmaids is Dean speciality.
In 2012 Dean also started making soy scented candles and spent 7 months testing fragrances and wicks to make sure his new venture was perfect before selling his candles. He soon found a demand for his products and Sentinel Candles was born.
Dean sold his candles at local Moss Vale markets and soon after found the Moss Vale New program (more below). The Renew program offered Dean a retail shop in the main street of Moss Vale and Dean jumped at his chance to open his first shop.
On the 6th December 2013, Sentinel Candles Shop was open for business with 100+ fragrances in Melts, a wide range of soy and palm wax votives and a small range of soy scented jars.
Since the opening Sentinel Candles has grown and now stocks over 150 scented soy melts, 30 different scented votives, a wide range of tealights and pillar candles. The shop also has a number of different jar candles, ranging from regular to extra large and tall jars (21Oz) in 50 fragrances. Every one of our candles has been created and hand poured by Dean.
