Our Story

How it all started?

Make Sense was born during the lockdown, during this unpredictable time of our lives. The first thing Rita would do every day was light a candle. Her sweet moment, the first thing in the morning that she finds relaxing. This one little thing would help her throughout the day. 

During this scary moment of our lives, she found that her passion for candles could go from lit a candle to candle making. 

She learnt the whole process, and she is so focused on it all. It's a forever learning process that she's thrilled about. From choosing the right wax, checking the fragrance formula, every candle is carefully handcraft and hand-poured making every piece unique.  


Now, how did this all start between us three? 

Three different people, different styles, different countries, one pandemic. 

Many hours without sleep and entire days trying to find the perfect combination. We simply couldn’t get enough. But we made it work. Online, but we did.


Meet the SHEO's of MakeSense and her stories


Marilia lives in France and loves candles.

Marta lives in England, never really paid much attention to candles.

Rita lives in England and she’s absolutely a candle lover.


Fun fact

Rita and Marilia always loved candles, but Marta never understood why we would buy so many candles, so many different scents, scents she goes mental experimenting today. Today, she is very enthusiastic, she does all the research, and she wants to learn more about this amazing process of candle making. 


Rita is the candle making boss. She’s the one preparing all the lovely candles you enjoy having. She also takes care of marketing.

Marta is the creative mind behind Make Sense. She’s the designer, developer, grumpy perfectionist and the extra pair of hands when Rita needs help.

Marilia, the third element. Even though she’s miles away she’s always and I mean always present. She’s the translator, takes care of marketing, sales, accounting and she bosses us around, but really, she’s the one that makes us laugh when things get a bit rough.


Make Sense is the three of us, is the passion for candles, is family, is learning and experimenting new things but especially is hope, is giving that special moment to others, is giving light to someone else’s life during tough times. Make Sense helped us through this anxious moment and we wanted to help others.

So it all started…Make Sense was born. 


We hope you like it as much as we do ♡
