Hi, I'm Kendall, Founder and Creative Director of TEMPLE Candles Home Fragrances.

As an Interior Designer, I love the final touch a candle or diffuser adds to a room; how their fragrance transforms the atmosphere with luxurious scent. It’s this passion for fragrance coupled with my love for my tropical island home nestled in the glittering blue waters of the South China Sea, Singapore, that inspired me to create TEMPLE Candles. 

Having been on a personal search for that perfect Oriental-inspired gift and understanding the memory-evoking abilities of fragrance, I am immensely proud to have created a luxury home fragrance brand right here in Singapore.

TEMPLE fragrances capture the luxuriance of island living, evoking memories of Singapore and romantic travels of the Far East.

Each TEMPLE fragrance has a story behind its creation that is direct a connection to our island life here in the tropics. It's those stories and connections to our beautiful garden city that inspired me to create something that people could take home with them, to remember their travels and time spent here in the tropics of the Orient. 

Working closely with world renowned perfumers in Singapore, Europe & Australia, my sublime botanical scents have been bought to life.  Each scented product is carefully hand-blended, hand-poured, and beautifully packaged in our Singapore production studio using the very finest essential oil fragrances and the most eco-friendly wax available on the market today, natural coconut wax.

Within a few short years of launching TEMPLE (and thousands of candles and diffusers later!) I could never have imagined our journey would see our brand in some of Singapore's most loved retail locations and that we would be the proud creators of bespoke fragrances for retail partner, the iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore.  I am incredibly grateful for the love people have expressed for TEMPLE, and I am excited to be expanding & bringing beautiful new products for you to enjoy in the years to come.

I truly hope you love TEMPLE home fragrance products as much I have loved creating them for you.
