Create a Personalised Candle With a Custom Scent For You or Someone You Love
It can be tricky to find the perfect present when shopping for a loved one (or maybe you just want to treat yourself!), so when we stumble across a thoughtful present idea, we have to share it. Whether you’re shopping for the festive season, for someone’s birthday or another special occasion, we have the best idea for you.
sent. is a soy candle company that understands the importance of scent and the role it plays in our lives. While the brand creates its own unique candle scent blends, it’s the personalised option that really takes our fancy. Called The Candle Bar, this service allows you to create your own custom candle blend.
The great thing about this service is that you don’t have to come up with the scent pairings yourself — the experts at sent. handle that for you — but you simply input a bunch of information about the aroma you’re after so they can create it. The scent can be inspired by a person, place or memory.
You take a short quiz, which includes simple questions about the meaning behind the candle. You might want it to represent a holiday you’ve taken, a memory that you hold special or for it to be created for an important person in your life.
Once the team at sent. has your answers, they set to work blending your personalised creation and the outcome is a completely custom scent just for you (or a loved one). The candle is poured into a reusable tin and includes a label that has a short description and the fragrance notes that have been inspired by your answers.
A personalised candle from The Candle Bar costs $65 and can take seven to 10 days to process, which ensures the best blend possible. And, taking into account the level of personalisation happening here, this feels like a completely reasonable price point for such a candle.
You can’t go wrong with a candle as a gift and this takes the whole experience to the next level, making it even more thoughtful. Save this for the next time you’re stuck for present ideas.
