House of Candles Culver City is built on five generations of candle making.
Ginger della Santina perpetuates the Ajello family’s long history that can be traced
back to its birthplace in Sorrento, Italy. With an international reputation of creating
some of the world’s most beautiful candles reminiscent of the their Italian heritage,
Ginger continues the legacy of her Ajello family.
Ginger’s grandfather, Antonino Ajello, opened his candle making business in
New York in 1885. His daughter, Virginia Ajello Reardon, who was trained by
her master craftsman father, opened her first shop in Beverly Hills in 1935. In
1963 Ginger joined her mother in the family business and they worked together
for over thirty years until Virginia’s passing. They acquired their own building
in Culver City in 1979 where they set up shop and continued creating extraord-
inary and enduring designs that now live on today through Ginger’s hands.
With 126 years of history behind her, Ginger has added her own creations, carrying on the
family’s tradition of being in the forefront of bringing candlelight into people’s lives with style.
In addition, House of Candles Culver City has been a major provider for 25 years of special
high-intensity burning candles to the entertainment industry as well as designer candles to the
residential environment including candles wonderfully suited for gifts.
