Our PYNK Girl Of The Day is Evita McCall, owner of Devour Candles. PYNK Girls love candles so you know we had to catch up with one of our favorite candle brands. Evita tells us how it all started.
Who is the woman behind Devour Candles?
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, which I presently reside. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with friends, shopping, traveling and writing poetry. I’ve always been entrepreneurial inclined and I’ve always wanted to own a business. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and Master’s Degree in Forensic Psychology. I’ve worked in the social service field for many years. Although, I worked in a demanding field, I’ve always been attracted to being creative. I feel being creative allows you to express yourself, while being different. Making candles has served as my creative outlet and have helped me to relax after long days.
What motivated you to start your own business?
I’ve always had a love for scented candles; I love how a candle can change your mood and change the ambiance of a room from the flicker of the flame and the euphoric scent. I started to study the art of candle making and experimented with making candles for myself, family and friends. Everyone that tried my candles loved them. One day someone asked me if I ever thought about starting a candle business, shortly after, Devour Candles was born.
