Thank you Wick: A Candle Bar for hosting us for a complimentary candle pour experience. All opinions are our own.
If you’re looking for a date night idea that’s fun and unique, look no further than Wick: A Candle Bar. Located in San Marco, this DIY candle shop involves so much more than just pouring wax.
Wick has a Scent for Everyone
The first thing you notice when you arrive at the diy candle bar is the sweet aroma. They carry an overwhelming number of different scents. An entire wall of sample candles welcomes you to sniff each and every one.
You’ll be handed a small clipboard and your Scent Tender will encourage you to smell everything. Yes, EVERYTHING! There are over 90+ scents for you to try. Even scents you think you might not enjoy shouldn’t be counted out until you’ve actually opened the jar and taken a whiff.
Making Your Own Scent is Easy and Fun
Once you’ve identified a handful of scents you like, your Scent Tender will help you narrow it down to 3 choices that they think will compliment each other. You’ll be encouraged to sniff the combination to ensure it’s something you’d like burning in your home. If you don’t like the way the combination smells, don’t worry, you can mix and match until your custom scent is just right.
In addition to mixing your custom scents, you’ll also create a custom label, and candle name, before your wax is poured.
The entire candle making process takes about 30 minutes and that all varies based on how long you spend picking out your scents. Once your candle is poured you must wait 90 minutes before you can take it home. For the perfect date night that includes a Wick visit, plan to grab dinner in San Marco and then swing by and pick up your cooled candle before heading home.
Candles aren’t the only thing you can make at Wick
You can also craft a custom scent for reed diffuser, wax melt, room sprays, body care products and other items. Wick: A Candle Bar makes an excellent, out-out-of-the-box, spot for a date night or a girls’ night out with friends. For less than $25 you can create a custom creation that will fill your home with the scents you love.
