About Us

Hi! I'm Ashley, maker and owner of Lê Đèn Cầy. I'm a Pittsburgh native, running the company out of my kitchen in Rockville, MD since 2022. The inspiration for the candles scents is influenced by the scents I grew up with, from the smoky, fresh incense burned every morning for prayer to my mom’s comforting Vietnamese dishes always made from scratch, to the vibrant fruits in my Ong ngoai’s (grandfather) fruit haven. 

The name Lê Đèn Cầy comes from a combination of my family name "Lê" and 'Đèn Cầy' which translates to 'candle' in Vietnamese.

Our candles are always hand-poured in small batches, ensuring the highest quality for our customers! Each candle is carefully crafted by me using 100% natural soy wax and essential oils. 

Thank you for stopping by and for your support! 

Ashley Lê
