WELCOME TO 

At Aroma on the Rocks, we believe that luxury and indulgence can be found in the simplest of pleasures. We are a Charleston-based small business, founded by the dynamic duo of Baleigh Shortreed and Russell Fleming. What started as a side hustle to pay off some debt quickly turned into a passion project that allows us to combine our love for candles, adult beverages, and great company.

Inspired by the artistry of bar drinks and the rich aromas of coffee (mostly Baleigh), we set out to create something truly unique. Our soy wax candles are meticulously handcrafted, encapsulating the essence of your favorite beverages. From the comforting aroma of freshly brewed coffee to the sophistication of a fine cocktail, each candle in our collection tells a story and sets the mood for unforgettable moments.

Baleigh, an avid wine drinker, discovered the idea of candles styled after coffee cups while browsing the internet. However, it was Baleigh's vision to infuse them with the essence of a variety of drinks that sparked our creativity. We wanted to bring the joy and warmth of happy hour into every home, inviting you to unwind and create your own delightful experiences.

As a small business, we pour our hearts into every aspect of Aroma on the Rocks. From the carefully selected ingredients to the exquisite glassware that showcases our candles, we strive for excellence in every detail. Each candle is hand-poured with love and precision, ensuring a clean and long-lasting burn that fills your space with intoxicating fragrance.


At Aroma on the Rocks, we celebrate the art of slowing down and savoring life's little moments. Whether you're looking to create a relaxing atmosphere, set the mood for a romantic evening, or simply enjoy a cozy night in, our candles are here to elevate your experience.
