About Virgins On Fire Candle Co.
I launched Virgins On Fire in June of 2020 seeking creative and financial independence from everyone who ever told me to sit down and shut up.
With funny and subversive candles reflecting people, places, and wild ideas, Virgins is about shedding other people's expectations, and moving forward on my own terms.
My mission: To BE a Virgin On Fire.
- Jesse Regis, Founder
