My first job out of school was food styling and photography for one of the best agencies in the city. I could never have imagined the tools of the trade. Mini-blow torches, duct tape, mashed potatoes, paint! The peach pies we’d been shooting all day looked delicious but were total fakes. The authenticity of the food I loved and the career I’d hoped for was an illusion. I was more than a little crestfallen as I realized my expectations were out of line with reality.
When I met my friends later for a drink they laughed and commiserated with me about my naiveté. Like all good friends at bars after work, they were determined to pick up my spirits. Without knowing it, they ordered me a Bellini and smuggled in a slice of peach pie from the bakery next door. Biting into the sweet peach flavor, I felt lucky to have such good friends (and such good pie) as we made our way in the world.
Peach is the fragrance of a bucolic, summery breeze. The fresh fruit top note blends with floral Jasmine, sweet vanilla, golden caramel, and tropical Tonka bean.

Daniella's Vellas Signature Collection
Daniella’s Vellas Signature Collection are handcrafted on Long Island using materials chosen with an emphasis on sustainability and renewability; including the label, packaging, wax, and wick.
Daniella’s Vellas Signature Collection candles are crafted from 100% American-grown soy wax. Read here about all the benefits of soy wax and why we have chosen to make all our candles from soy wax.
The containers for Daniella’s Vellas Signature Collection of candles are all made from coconut shells. The coconut shells have a finish on them that accentuates the natural beauty of the shell itself. These containers are offered in two sizes; a half coconut shell or a coconut cup. The half coconut shell contains approximately 5 ounces of our richly-scented soy wax and the coconut cup contains approximately 12 ounces of our richly-scented soy wax. The half coconut shell size burns for approximately 30 hours and the coconut cup burns for approximately 100 hours. Our richly-scented soy wax is all colored white to resemble the natural fruit that was once contained in the mature coconut shells. Read here about the benefits of our coconut containers and why all of us at Daniella’s Vellas are so proud to be able craft our Signature Collection inside of them.
The packaging and labeling for all our products is made from 100% post-consumer waste materials and are completely bio-degradable and recyclable. Read here about Daniella’s Vellas pledge to the environment.
