Candle & Wine Workshop

  • $55.00
Things to Do in Philadelphia

What do candles and wine have to do with each other? Quite a lot, actually. In this workshop, you'll learn from our Chandler, Stanford, who's also an Advanced Sommelier, to train your nose using candle fragrances to recognize popular scents and aromas found in wine. At the end, we'll "test your knowledge" with varietally-correct wines, then make candles with the scents you learned about.

In this session, expect a Wine 101 lesson on the basic scent notes and aromas to expect in popular wines--from whites to reds and things in between. Then we'll conduct some blind scent sessions using candle oils and teach you how to train your nose. Throughout the process, you'll be guided through designing your own candle scent to complement your favorite wine.

Sessions last about 2 hours. Non-refundable, though sessions can be re-booked. Must be 21+ to attend.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use a proprietary blend of soy wax and coconut wax. Everyone knows soy, but coconut is a much more superior wax. Coconut burns slower (increasing burn times) and holds scent better (making the candle more fragrant). Coconut is also much more environmentally friendly than soy wax. The end result produces a candle that lasts longer and burns stronger than 100% soy.

In a sense, yes and no. All of our fragrances are made from perfume-grade oils. So, they're made with natural elements (like essential oils) but put together by chemists. But, don't worry. Our oils are of such high quality, they're body and skin-safe, and we use them to also make perfume.

We work with some of the top fragrance manufacturers in the country to supply our "scent lab". There, we blend, mix, match, and create the scents that end up in our products.
