Our candles are handmade, hand poured, and handcrafted in small batches in our home studio.  

made with brotherly love

We are brothers who believe in family, friendship, faith, and fun.  Our goal is to create our own future TOGETHER and help others along the way.

made locally in the usa

Our candles, room sprays, diffusers, and body products are proudly made in the Washington, DC Metro area.  We use local designers, suppliers, and retailers. We believe in community partnerships.

Frères Branchiaux (pronounced "frair bron-shee-oh") means Gill Brothers.

We are Collin, Ryan, and Austin Gill, 3 brothers who like to create good smelling candles---really really good smelling candles. We handpour soy scented candles in small batches. We want our candles to make you happy when you light them. We want you to be so happy that you get more of our candles---and share them with your friends and family. Oh---and we speak French too. :)

PLUS, we donate 10% of our profits to DC homeless shelters. With every candle that you buy, you are helping a homeless person in need.
