"The best things come in small packages"

Not only does this ring true to our luxurious range of hand-poured candles and room sprays, but also to the close-knit team of three working together behind the scenes at Nevé.

We think that it's always good to put a face to the name - so we'd love to get you acquainted with the ladies behind Nevé, and what they get up to on the daily.


TessaOur leading lady Tessa is usually found at the Nevé HQ with her head buried amongst an array of fragrance oils - creating our next exclusive blend or testing new products to ensure they meet our sky-high standards.

From dreaming up new campaigns, to being the friendly face at our market stalls, Tessa's passion and commitment to crafting truly luxurious home fragrance products for you to enjoy is second to none. 

Juggling both a day job and a business means finding a moment to relax is few and far between, however as a self-confessed foodie and wine enthusiast - Tessa loves entertaining on the weekends, spoiling her pooch Lola or drawing inspiration from other high-quality beauty, fashion and home brands, all with a glass of pinot in hand and candle burning nearby (thankfully for her she's got a pretty good supply on hand to fuel her addiction).

“Luxury doesn't have to be expensive, the simple act of slowing down, lighting a candle and just pausing for a moment can be some of the best self care for busy lives”


Vicki + TessaNevé wouldn't be what it is today without Vicki, our candle making superstar and mum to our founder Tessa.

From the early morning starts preparing and pouring hundreds of candles, to the winding drives from the West Coast to deliver our candles here in Christchurch and everything in between, we can't thank her enough. 

Living on a lifestyle property deep in stunning native bushland provides Vicki with an au naturel backdrop of zen - the perfect setting for her meticulous candle making ways. Her keen eye for ensuring all measurements and temperatures are absolutely perfect is evident in the quality and finish of each product.

Mother and soon-to-be-grandmother, Vicki is the glue that holds the family together. Her passion for health and wellbeing sees her spending her weekends nose deep in books, in the kitchen or growing her own organic crops in the garden. 


Candle Boxing

Ashleigh is our resident Jack of all trades, taking care of everything from social media and marketing to customer service, order dispatch and design. Ashleigh collaborates with Tessa across everything Nevé to ensure our brand ethos shines through in everything we do - creating a seamless customer experience from start to finish.

When Ashleigh isn’t behind the desk in our beautiful showroom, you’ll find her in search of Christchurch's best almond croissant (send any tips her way), or exploring the stunning South Island's best camping spots.
