I brought a group of ladies by in September. The ladies there were fully prepared and had everyone done within an hour. WOW! All of our candles turned out great, we received excellent customer service, and were very pleased with the entire experience. Can't wait to go back and make another candle!

Loved this experience. I did it with coworkers and have been meaning to go back. Prices were reasonable, in line with what you would pay for a Yankee candle. I would highly recommend it!

Stopped by the candle lab with the Mrs. and we had a great time. The candle lab technician was friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. My wife and I wanted to make our own couples scent. I came up with my top three favorite scents and so did my wife. The technician reviewed our favorites and combined the best... More

Stopped by with my fiancée & best friend while taking a walk after lunch at The Melt. This was a really cool experience and the candles we made smelled great. I would recommend this if you have an open afternoon or are looking for something different to do.

My daughter was coming home for spring break and I found The Candle Lab on Tripadvisor and thought this would be a great experience. I was finalizing my plans when I noticed the Candle Lab website in one area stated they were not open on Mondays and another stated by appointment only, so, I called the 751 N. high St.... More

I love that as soon as you walk in the space is so quant that you are greeted immediately but in a subtle non-invasive kind of way. If you are looking to purchase you can peruse all the scents at your leisure or whomever is working can usually be pretty helpful. My favorites are Dad's den and leather mmmm...anyway you... More

While visiting Columbus with friends we stopped at the Short North storefront location. They have a wall of about 100 various scented candles ranging from whipped cream to dirt. You name it, they pretty much have a candle for it. The real attraction for our wives on this visit was the chance to make their own unique scented candles. They... More
