Alene Candles

Full-service contract manufacturing of superior quality, custom-designed fragranced candles


Determined to build a new kind of candle company, Paul Amato and his wife Nancy Alene Amato founded Alene Candles in Milford, New Hampshire in 1995.

 Paul took his 25 years’ experience in the home fragrance and candle industries and applied it to his mission of “efficient artisanship.” This solid foundation, as well as a team of industry veterans and our custom-built state-of-the-art testing laboratories, allows Alene to produce the best and brightest in the industry.

We're here to help with your project development goals every step of the way. Our experienced team will custom-tailor each project to fit your specific needs, whether you're intimately involved or prefer us to handle all details – from design to distribution.

Alene develops, designs and creates candles for some of the world’s most recognized retail, boutique and cosmetic brands. Our aptitude for innovation not only assures optimal candle quality, but delivers rapid turnaround for your project.  Alene's artisanship combined with efficiency makes us an effective solution for your business needs, no matter the size or complexity. Because we are solely a contract manufacturer of private label brands and do not produce our own line, we are able to focus entirely on manufacturing your candle to your exact specifications.
