About Fréres Branchiaux

Three brothers who start a business together is a nice story, but three brothers who start a business together as preteens? That’s remarkable. Collin, Ryan, and Austin Gill launched their candle company, Fréres Branchiaux, in 2017 as a way to earn video game money. The business quickly took off, and the brothers — now 15, 12, and 10 years old, respectively — have expanded from their signature hand-poured candles to offer room sprays, diffusers, bath salts, and more. The boys create each of the scents they sell, from Collin’s Chunky Sweater to Ryan’s 1790, an homage to the brothers’ hometown of Washington, D.C. Since its inception, Fréres Branchiaux has donated 10 percent of profits to homeless shelters in the D.C. area, honoring the brothers’ commitment to community with every purchase.

Why we love them

We love that each handmade candle has layers of aromas, like refreshing Lime Cotton or cozy, fall-ready Whiskey Sweet. KCM’s Ciara has the Love Jones scent and, well, loves it. It’s just the right amount of sweet and makes any room feel like the right place to take a nap or read a book. The room sprays are offered in the same scents, work well, and are easy to stash on your night stand or in your backpack. Once you finish your candle, you can send it back to the brothers as part of their recycling program. They’ll use it for their next batch, and you’ll get a dollar off your next order.
