Make your own candles, salts or melts. Many scents to choose from (and they change with the season). Staff helps you narrow it down to two or three. Color a label, mix your scents the way you like them and stir the wax. You end up with a high quality candle and your art fix satisfied. It takes a few... More

Traditional candle jars, but lots and lots of scents (100+ I think). I chose Mug & Brush which was a clean shave smell. Nice gift packaging.

I made my first candle with a girl I was nannying. She had a gift card so we spent the afternoon making candles. I liked the self serve idea and got to pick my scents. I made a muskier candle and hers was fruity. It didn't take too long for them to cool. The candle lasts a while, just like... More

My children surprised me for Mother's Day by taking me to The Candle Lab. What fun! Making my own candle with scent combinations that I picked out was great, and the people working there were very helpful in suggesting what scents would work well together. We were able to make our own candles, right down to creating the label to... More

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.
