Oreck Creates New Candle LineFebruary 21st, 2009
You have probably heard of Oreck vacuums and air purifiers, and now the 85-year-old founder of Oreck Corp. is delving into the candle business.
David Oreck wants to make sure your house isn’t just clean, but also full of comforting aromas. The “Oreck Farm Brand” candles come in a variety of fragrances inspired by the homemade treats and wonderful scents from his farm in Hattiesburg, Miss., near New Orleans.
“When I got into the vacuum cleaner business, my vacuums were innovative products, and now I have this line of candles that are innovative as well,” says Oreck, who will be selling his candles through his Fragrant Passage Candle Co. beginning in mid-March.
“My candles are more fragrant, emit more light because of the patented wax we use and are a green product. It’s a significantly different candle,” says Oreck.
Look for fragrances from orange marmalade to wildflower. The candles will retail for $29.95 and also be available at gift shops and other retail outlets.
