What you'll do

In this course, you will have the opportunity to explore our gallery of 100 different scents and create a custom fragrance for your candle. The sense of smell is the most powerful of the five, directly linked to the amygdala and hippocampus, the areas of the brain holding all of our emotions and memories. This explains why we'll catch a whiff of certain smells that instantaneously transport us to another time, person or place. So whether you're on date night, traveling, or simply with friends and family — together you create a custom fragrance inspired by a previously shared experience — so every time that candle is lit the scent will remind you of each other, in that moment and place. Come with an open mind and clear nose. You will learn about the different fragrance families and understand how to layer fragrances for your candle. Aside from crafting your own fragrance, you'll be pairing it with a soy wax candle. We'll guide you through the step-by-step process and learn about the chemistry behind candle making — from wicking to pouring to curing. The workshop includes all materials to make a soy candle, including a handmade concrete container, fragrance, and wax.

Mallory

Hello, my name is Mallory and I am a concrete artist, candle maker, and the founder of Lit Lab Berlin. I left the tech world to pursue my passion for candles and design and my goal is to change how people use candles in terms of fragrance and sustainability. I make every single candle by hand (yes even the concrete part!), of which retail globally and have been nominated for the German Design Award. Looking forward to meeting you and smelling stuff together!
