Pour a Candle
Invent with Scent

From your favorite spa scent, to creating a scent from a beloved place or time in your history; with over 100 fragrances to choose from, the possibilities are endless and invented by YOU!
It’s not Rocket Science it’s Chemistry- How to Invent Your Scent
1: To get started, just get smelling! There are a TON of scents to choose from; so smell away, and put down all your faves.
2: Up next, welcome our Scent Stylists. We’ll help you narrow down your list to just a few scents that blend perfectly together.
3: Select your container. From tumblers to mason jars, we have a wide variety of cute containers to fit any style or decor.
4: You’ll design your label and mix your oils at our Fragrance Bar to invent your unique custom fragrance creation.
Pricing is dependent on the size and style of jar that you pour into starting at $23.00 with several options under $25. Candles are not the only item you can customize. We also offer a wide variety of high quality home products just waiting for your custom scent inventions.
From the first sniff to the finish line, our process takes about 30 minutes.
Candles then take 120-150 minutes to cool (depending on size) before they are ready to take home. This is a great time to visit one of our neighbors for a bite to eat, a drink, or to do a little walking around the neighborhood for some shopping.
You are welcome to return to the store to pick up your candle, or one of our crew can deliver your completed inventions to you and your group at the restaurant!!!
With a group of five or less, come on in and begin your fragrance creation; no reservation required! To make a reservation for groups of five or more, please visit our Plan a Party page for more information!
Helpful Tips from our Scent Stylists:
- If you want to pour a candle and pick it up that same day, please plan to visit the store no more than approximately two hours before close as candles take ~120 minutes to cool before they are ready to take home. If you don't mind picking up your candle another day, then you are more than welcome to stop in anytime before close to pour. There is no rush to pick up your finished candle - we hold onto them for 6 months!
- Holding onto that Candle Chemistry jar? Great! Bring it back to the store and we’ll give you $1 off your purchase - no limit! Don’t worry about the jars being in mint condition - we’ve got the tools to reuse or recycle of them properly.
- While we know you might have a cute container you'd like to pour into, we aren't able pour into jars brought into our stores from outside. However, great news; we offer a variety of jars in different sizes and styles, so you're sure to find one that meets your own style and needs. Our jars go through an extensive testing process to ensure they are safe for burning in your home before they are placed on our shelves. Your safety is our number one priority, and we simply can't ensure that your candle will perform safely if poured into a jar that has not been vetted. (But we're sure your container is cute! We recommend re-purposing in your bathroom or kitchen).
