About Us

Jessica Hill Howard
Founder and CEO


Jessica founded Sicily Hill in 2017 with the mission to provide the chicest candles to the consumer. The Sicily Hill collection is greatly inspired by Jessica's time residing and studying handbag design in Milan, Italy. 

While in Milan, Jessica fell in love with the Italian experience of the aperitivo, the ritual of consuming a craft cocktail and hors d'oeuvres in the evening. Thus, the aperitivo is the inspiration for the cocktail and beverage notes featured in our home fragrance collection.

Additionally, Jessica's studies of handbag design can be seen in our luxurious packaging. Most notably, our iconic oversized candles are housed in boxes akin to a designer handbag with details including a handle, strap, and gold buckle.
