Our Story

My great grandfather Lewis Bunnell (LB) Jones, born in the late 1800s, was an adept story teller who created hundreds of campaigns for Eastman Kodak during the 1920's and 1930's. These campaigns transported each viewer into another world where they could capture time and keep it forever... "You press the button, we do the rest". Simply magical.

As I set out on this journey of capturing moments, I thought of my grandfather and this idea of transportation. I have been lucky enough to travel through some of the most beautiful parts of the world and in every place it was through smell that I found myself closing my eyes and taking those places with me.

The delicate rose gardens of Notting Hill, the rich spice markets of Tangier, the sun warmed fruits of Florence, the breezy island air of Tahiti, the rich pine scent of Aspen...I wanted to recreate sensory sojourns to faraway places and bring them to your home. RareLumiere is a canvas to share this journey with you...please travel with us wherever you are and enjoy our extraordinary candles made of the finest materials. We are all explorers and romantics!
