About us:
We're an innovative, small and growing business. We offer a creative work environment, and the opportunity to work with a passionate team!
JIĀ (Chinese for home/family) creates a nostalgic collection of home fragrances; candles that tell a story with each burn that represents a link to AAPI roots. Through our work, we hope to fill the gap of AAPI representation missing from the fragrance industry.
We've been making waves since 2021 with our online presence and have recently expanded to a physical location in beautiful Berkeley, CA. Our candle making workshops offer an immersive olfactory experience that engages all senses while we guide guests through the candle making process. Our goal is to invite guests to create candles that remind them of JIĀ, home.
