Come Pour Your Own! Q & A
Our interactive candle bar is designed to deliver a one of a kind experience, where individuals can mix, pour, and curate their very own custom candle or home fragrance. This experience is perfect for date night, girls night, birthday celebrations, or just a fun time out on the town!
Our in store experience will go something like this:
Explore our fragrance wall displaying an array of over 80 scents. Write down all of your favorites and don't worry about if they go well together or not. Our Scent Specialist will step in to help you narrow it down
After making a list of your favorite scents, it's time to choose a vessel to pour your candle into. Your session will come standard with a 12oz jar. Upon arrival to the store, you will have the opportunity to upgrade to a 14oz or 16oz jar.
Set It + Blend It
Grab a barstool at our signature candle bar. Enjoy a beverage. Mix and blend your scents together. This is the fun part - Let your creative side shine, while you control the scent ratios and curate a custom fragrance that is tailored to you!
Well what's a bar without tap? We keep our hot wax on Tap and ready for you to pour. During this step you will pour your new custom candle creation into your vessel. Your candle will be required to cool and set for about 2 hours. --- And there your have it! You've just created and poured your very own candle and earned a "New" title as a Chandler. (Chandler is just a very fancy name for us candle makers)
Pull out your camera and start capturing memories with your friends (remember to tag us @strikeflamecandles in your pics & videos on social media) We will also snap some really awesome photos of you as well.
