Our Team

Mother & Daughter Team

Marlene and Elise with their outgoing personalities, entrepreneurial spirits, love for people, and their shared passion for nicely scented spaces, were in search of a fun and creative small business venture they could start together.

The two of them starting out making candles in their kitchen, coming up with unique scent combinations to give as gifts to family and friends.  After a year of doing this they started to ponder how they could bring the candle pouring experience to others to enjoy as well.

Their dream of becoming a locally owned small business in Downtown Birmingham quickly took to fruition and Urban Wick Candle Bar was born.

Marlene and Elise continue with their excitement since opening Urban Wick Candle Bar in July of 2020 and they look forward to helping you create your new favorite candle!
