I had so much fun with my friends making amazing smelling candles and trying some delicious wines. The team at Sanibel Candle Company is so nice and inviting and we had a great time.
I loved the idea of this combo class and bought 2 tickets. The wines were lovely and the candle is nice. I thought the charcuterie boards were included. I came in before class to ask if there was going to be served. I was told yes. I thought the price was too high without something to eat. Maybe put out cheese and crackers or some sort of snack when serving alcohol. I wish you great success.
First let me say that I love my candle and the owner's wife was an absolute gem to work with with!! Candle retails for around $35... event including wine tasting was $60. Normally, I would expect a 4oz pour in a nice stemware. This was about a 2oz pour in an odd small glass. There was no water served, which was tough on a wine tasting. There was also no food given at the event, which was fine, but the only option was to buy a pre-made charcuterie box that was $26 and had one type of meat in it. Worst yet, the one type of meat was VERY spicy... and again.. no water is provided. None the less, the candle was amazing, and I purchased $65 more in candles, and my friends bought some as well. I was slightly taken aback when the owner made an announcement asking for tips for their employees. After spending $60 on the event, $65 more in pre-made take home candles, and $26 on a charcuterie box that could barely be eaten... I did not feel like I needed to tip his hourly employees. The worst part was that he called out one of his employees to the crowd and called her a "tip monger". She was clearly mortified. I'm not sure if he made this comments because he had a few glasses of wine or if he's normally that harsh. The next day, I went to pick up our 5 candles, and called and asked that since the parking lot is being resurfaced and I needed to park further away, if it would be possible for someone to meet me at the driveway with the candles to help me load them into my car. While on the phone, I could hear the owner in the background come up with every reason why NOT to help me, leaving the poor girl on the phone to stammer. While I truly enjoy my candle, I would probably not attend a class again. For the cost, i would just go in and make my candle.
It was such a fun time!!! Really enjoyed making the candle & socializing with friends!!
I went with a group of girls and we had a blast ! We brought some bubbly to make it festive! The owners were helpful but not overbearing . They assisted us in making scent choices and took us through the process . They were friendly, personable and if you are lucky, you will meet their pup! I highly recommend this experience as a great night out activity!!
We took our two granddaughters into make candles with us.
The class instructions were informative, very easy to follow & so much fun!! When we returned to pick them up a few hours later, each candle was packaged so nicely in a small gift bag with tissue paper….impressed! All four of us still are talking about this experience. We will definitely be back!
My daughter and I had the best time creating our candles! The staff was so friendly, sincere and helpful, and the candles turned out amazing. We will definitely be back again!
We had so much fun. What a great memory to take home. All the staff was very friendly & helpful. Only one suggestion, is it possible to create a vessel in the shape of a seashell 🐚 to pour wax in & make a candle.
My daughter & I took my nieces for their 10th & 11th birthdays. They loved it- my daughter ended up making a candle and car air freshener. I found out they do wax melts too- so, I had to make them. Great service. This is our 2nd time in a 3 month period.
My granddaughters and I had a great time making candles! The staff was outstanding!! I highly recommend this experience!
Today we went to the Sanibel Candle shop.
We had a wonderful time with Olivia. She spent time with us throughout our visit. She gave us all the directions we needed to create a scent for our candle.
We had a great time . Thank Olivia
Now off to lunch at the Burntwood Tavern.
It was a nice experience but felt like it was too quick for the price. But it was a nice experience with my daughters.
Staff was very welcoming and accommodating. We were invited to make ourselves comfortable, and even start our session earlier, as they were not busy. They walked us through the steps of picking out our vessels and scents, and then assisted us as we added fragrance and poured our candles. I was very pleased with the way my fragrance turned out, especially when I was able to begin burning my candle. Thank you, staff! We had a great experience!
My daughter and I had a marvelous time together making candles. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The owner came and talked with us. We will definitely return to make more candles.
Amazing way to spend a night with friends surrounded by pleasant aromas. The scents have the ability to heighten feelings and bring pleasant memories to the surface. It was great to have the opportunity to create a unique scent that sparks joy. We shared a bottle of wine and a relaxing night
