Lane Cove Local Sallee Hitchins – Luxury Candles with a Royal Connection

In The Cove would like you to meet another creative Lane Cove local.  Sallee Hitchens is the founder of the luxury candle range U Light Me Up.   ULightMeUp creates beautiful handmade luxury, soy/coconut wax, crystal candles.

In The Beginning…….

Two years ago Sallee launched her range of handmade candles at the Versace High Tea.  The guest of honour at the High Tea was none other than Paul Burrell.  Many of you will know that Paul Burrell is Princess Diana’s former butler.

Since the launch party, U Light Me Up Candles have been showcased at some stunning events.  Celebrity Floral Designer Karen Tran featured U Light Me Up Candles at her Heavenly Gala Dinner at the Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove.

Sallee has worked with some of the most talented professionals in the field of styling and events such CelebrationsbyAlysiaLuxury Bridal Blogger and Wedded Wonderland .

Luxury and Pamper Range

Sallee’s candles not only look stunning at gala events, they also add a touch of elegance to a home.  Salle’s range includes statement pieces and pamper candles that will fill your home with a wonderful fragrance. All candles are individually handmade to the scent you select. 

Sallee has been delighted with the feedback from her customers.

“I’m so thrilled with ULightMeUp candles!  They burn so beautifully and evenly and not to mention they smell divine!  I love the different sizes available and higher/lower price points and that I can buy it as a gift for a loved one.  The packaging is so decadent I don’t even need to wrap it! Easily the best candles I’ve ever bought.

There are so many candle products on the market, but if you want the very best you must have a ULightMeUp Candle!  I initially purchased two for myself, but was so impressed with the quality, scent and divine crystal vases I bought another three as presents for family and friends.  The carefully created candles are a masterpiece in any surroundings and a perfect gift, as they are not only stunning but beautifully unique.  Sallee is also a pleasure to deal with and goes above and beyond to deliver the very best customer service.
