The Pour It Up Experience

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:


Sniff It

Explore our fragrance wall displaying an array of over 50 scents. Write down all of your favorites. Don't worry about if they go well together or not, our Scent Specialist will step in to help you narrow your choices down.

Pick It

After making a list of your favorite scents, it's time to choose a vessel to pour your candle in. You can choose from our classic 14oz matte black jars or upgraded to one of our 16oz jars. 

Set It + Blend It

Grab a stool are our bar top and enjoy a beverage as you continue your candle making experience. Set your wicks inside your vessel and get ready to mix and blend your scents together. This is the fun part, where you get to let your creative side shine. You get to control the scent ratios and curate a custom fragrance that is tailored to you!

Pour It

Well what's a bar without a 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 take about 2 hours to cool and set. 

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.)
