Blueberry cobbler. Bonfire. Caribbean teakwood. The candle-makers at Scents by the Company near our Bethesda apartments draw inspiration from an eclectic mix of muses when they craft their artisan candles. If you love unwinding in a bubble bath with a candle flickering softly nearby, come to one of the candle-making workshops at Scents by the Company to design your own bathroom accent.
The public classes are offered on a daily basis and include both the materials and instruction you need to DIY a high-quality candle to take home. The instructors let you choose which essential oil or blend of essential oils you want to use to scent your candle, which you’ll shape from natural soy wax using provided mixing and measuring tools over a portable stovetop. As your candle cools, enjoy music, games, and light refreshments alongside friends both new and old! Scents by the Company also offers happy hour and brunch candle-making workshops that include light bites along with cocktails or mimosas. Tickets start at $65 and dates and times vary, so check out the Eventbrite page to find a session that suits your schedule.
