Lynn and Mike Jordan retired to Gulf Shores, Alabama in the fall of 2009. In early 2015, Lynn started making soy candles at the request of a friend and local business owner. Word quickly spread and Bon Secour Candle Company was created. Now they combine her love of candles and his business background to provide a quality product at a reasonable price with exceptional customer service. This is truly a Mom and Pop business. In her workroom located inside their home on Bon Secour Bay, Lynn hand pours every candle and wax melt they sell. Mike manages inventory, financials and deliveries. In their spare time, Lynn enjoys photography and Mike is an avid sports fan.
Bon Secour, Alabama is a coastal community with huge live oak trees covered in Spanish moss, great blue herons, brown pelicans, ever-present bottle nosed dolphins and the potent smell of salty gulf waters. The name "Bon Secour" is derived from the French phrase meaning "safe harbor" due to the secluded location on the inside coast of the Fort Morgan Peninsula of southern Alabama. Its history is rooted in the shrimping and fishing industry with many of the current families tracing their roots in this seafaring life back for generations. People in this community believe in hard work, looking out for neighbors and the importance of one’s word.
It is upon these simple traits that Bon Secour Candle Company has built its reputation. One of Lynn's local shrimp boat photographs is used on the product labels; an tribute to the area for which the business is named. Our candles and wax melts are made for the customer who wants to enjoy a clean-burning, fragrant candle or melt without paying extra for fancy, unnecessary packaging.
