Scents That Influence Our Senses

Coconut is one of my very favorite scents and flavors! Our sense of smell and taste are truly a gift. They remind us of the good things in life and the bad which all affect our 5 senses in one way or another. Over the years I have seen our customers select candle scents by their memories, circumstances, or for the candles aesthetic beauty. It is quite an interesting process to watch. For me coconut reminds me of a summer day I spent in Cancun... The sun... sand and the oceanside cafe where the waiter brought us coconut ice cream in a big bowl covered with Kahlua, chocolate sauce and shredded coconut! Our Wildflower Wax signature Mandarin Coconut candles are one of my favorite summer candle fragrances....
If you haven't been in to the studio lately, we have moved the candle making area to the front. Here are the fragrance oil bottles in our creation area. On a few Friday nights a month we have candle making nights where you can make your own candles customized with your favorite scents, colors and charms. You can bring your friends, drinks, ipod's, anything you need to feel at home. Well...anything LEGAL that makes you feel at home! We are still getting raised eyebrows when people see the lounge area! People have asked, "Is that an Opium Den or a Tarot Card Reading Room"? Quite, it's a place for our guests to relax, bored husbands to sit, or for me to pull the curtains and take a nap!
