Musical Theatre Performer Debora Krizak, Launches New Cheeky Australian Candle Company

New, quirky and irreverent candle brand The Really Useless Candle Company, founded by musical theatre performer Debora Krizak, is setting the home décor world on fire with the launch of its unique and cheeky candles.

These conversation starting candles will not only light up these dark COVID times, but their touché slogans promise to bring a much-needed smile to their customers' faces. With Australia-wide shipping, candles can be ordered and delivered as the perfect gift for friends and family at

The Australian made and hand poured candles are made from 100% natural soy wax and are zinc and lead-free. Customers can choose from a black or white candle, a choice of six scents plus their preferred slogan. Slogans give a nod to anything from musicals to movies, occasions or give the proverbial two fingers up towards COVID-19. Examples of slogans include: "WHAT IS IT YOU CAN'T FACE?", "SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY", "I'M THAT FRIEND THAT CALLS WHEN YOU TEXT", "LET'S GET LIT", "F#%K YOU COVID-19' and many more.

Founder and owner of The Really Useless Candle Company as well as professional musical theatre performer, bird lover and mother of twins, Debora Krizak is proud to launch the new candle brand during these crazy COVID times. Debora explains; "My idea to start this business was created during the dreaded Covid-19 when I lost all of my work as a performing artist and needed to find a way to fuel my creative soul.

The Really Useless Candle Company was created out of my simple love of candles and a need to express myself. So here I am, sharing some of my favourite 'slightly cheeky' thoughts on a candle in a world that has become far too PC for my liking. I hope you can share in my humour."
