Emma’s (Anytime) Gift: AVM Casa Handmade Soy Candles

We recently discovered AVM Casa handmade soy candles, created and founded in Bronxville by Andrea Martins.  AVM Casa met the criteria for the the “Emma Stamp of Approval” – a quality item, a fab find, a great gift idea for any occasion and most importantly, created by a local mom in our area. 

Inspired by reading Entertaining by Martha Stewart 15  years ago, Andrea Martins became enamored with candle making, however it wasn’t until moving to Bronxville that her daughter – Emma (we just love this name) suggested to her mom to turn her hobby into a business and AVM Casa was born.  Founded to provide quality, handmade soy candles to those looking to enliven their space with the ambient glow of candle light while being mindful of the environment and their budgets (candles range from $2 – $45).

Bringing 20 years of luxury retail experience with Calvin Klein Home and most recently Prada in SOHO, Andrea has molded AVM Casa utilizing the same care and attention the large design houses show in producing the most luxurious and high-end quality product for their customers.

Ordering is as easy as 1, 2, 3…

  1. Select the fragrance (over 30 to choose from)
  2. fragranceSelect the size (ranging from 2 oz. votives to 20 oz.candles)
  3. Order Online.

AVM Casa uses pure fragrance and essential oils in our candles and a quality 100% soy wax that melts smoothly for hours of scented heaven. The wicks are self-trimming and 100% cotton, free of lead and paper cores

Planning a special event AVM Casa can produce small batch of candles as decorations or favors to hand out to your guests.  Choose from any of their scenes and they will create custom labels.
