What will I be making at the event?
As of June 1, 2020, our service offerings have changed. We are now providing 3 service options to our customers. At booking, you'll be able to choose the type of candle making event you'd like to attend. Those options are listed below.
How long does each event last?
On average, our candle making parties last 1-1/2 to 2 hours at our studio locations. The first hour is dedicated to guest making their custom scented candles. Candles require 30 minutes to an hour to "set" before they can be taken home. During this time, guests will play a game of candle trivia, mix and mingle, and receive candle care instructions.
What is your BYOB policy?
You are welcome to bring the beverage of your choice to your candle making event. We will provide cups and bottle opens for your convenience. Please be sure to drink responsibly and never drink and drive.
Can I bring food and/or snacks to the event?
Sure! You can also have food delivered to the candle studio. Feel free to ask us for local restaurant recommendations. Please note, all food must be delivered before the 2 hour candle making event ends.
What kind of custom scents do you offer?
We have over 40 fragrance oils to mix within your candle. We will add or change fragrances seasonally. If you have fragrance suggestions, please let us know!
Can I personalize the label on my candle?
I'm having trouble finding a location. Where are you located?
Our New York City studio is located at 147 W 35th Street, Suite #306, New York, NY 10001. We are located on 35th Street between 7th Ave & Broadway near Dunkin Donuts. We are in a high rise building with a doorman. Look for the gold awning with "147" displayed. No need to stop at the doorman, we are located on the 3rd floor in Suite 306.
How do I take care of my candles?
How to Avoid Candle Wax Tunneling -
Burn your candle for long enough to achieve a complete wax pool. With our jars that is 2 hours. (The size wick is key in burning distance- our Wicks burn 1 inch per hour)
Trim your Wicks to a 1/4 of an inch before you light your candle. (We cut it for them to 1/4 inch) This will help continue to make the candle burn clean and slow. (Clean meaning reduced SOOT ((smoke)) & slow meaning it will not burn quickly.) Trimming Wicks will preserve your candle for a long time. If kept well it will burn for 55 hours.
Extinguish candle when it reaches 1/4 of an inch to the bottom
Don’t burn for more than 4 hours without trimming your wick
Don’t sleep with candles lit.
Don’t leave by kids, pets or drapes.
