"4 AM is my creative hour and actually started out as a t-shirt line. I was creating my own images to express different moods on the front of a t-shirt to inspire people to wear clothing that was connected to someone they actually knew. I didn’t have a lot of time to invest in it so I set it aside. Later on, in the year I moved to Atlanta and started my cleaning company, I knew that I wanted to keep the name and do something with it. I absolutely love candles, I light about 10 a night in my own home. So I decided to start a candle line." Marcus Labon

The candle line at F E L L A caters to a neglected candle-buying market (ahem.. the gentleman) by creating and packaging woodsy/unisex scents. Candles clue people into the present moment. Scents and smells have a way of triggering nostalgia, setting a tone that captures a specific moment in time. Like cleaning a house, lighting a candle at the end of the day was a positive and rewarding experience; it reminded Chauncey of the present moment - emotional relief and self-love/pampering. “Relaxed style, relaxed life”: F E L L A was created around this concept of improving mental health and Chauncey’s mantra of positivity in life and in products that promote positive messaging.
