Our Story


A multi-award winning marketing maverick, Amanda Buhse is the artistic force and face of Coal & Canary. Born over a glass of wine, the brand was built by best friends that discovered there was a gap in the market for quality, hand-made candles catered toward the hip and young professional. Since 2014, Coal & Canary has grown into "Canada's favourite artisan candle" (-Forbes) under Amanda's leadership. 


Her candles reflect her vibrant personality, commitment to strong design and appreciation for impeccable craftsmanship. Her goal is to provide design conscious individuals with a product that not only smells amazing, but looks great as well.
