“While traveling, my wife and I came across a custom-scent candle-making business and tried it. When we got home and lit our candle, our friends commented on how lovely our home smelled, and we realized the experience had touched us beyond the store. That’s when we decided we need to bring this experience to our own backyard,” said Tom Stumph, owner of Sanibel Candle Company.
Scents Conjure up Feelings and Emotions
Walking into a home or business, you see, hear, and smell the surroundings. Smells are handled by the olfactory bulb, the structure in the front of the brain that sends information to the other areas of the body for further processing. Scents take a direct route to the regions related to emotion and memory, which is why they induce certain feelings that conjure up emotions and memories. For example, coconut oils remind us of beach activities, lemon and oranges elevate our energy levels, vanilla and cinnamon provide a loving atmosphere.

Bell Tower, a new home to Sanibel Candle Company and 5 other Sanibel businesses
Sanibel Candle Company is one of many new Sanibel-based businesses at Bell Tower. It is in good company with Congress Jewelers, Macintosh Books and Paper, Synergy, Butterfly Beach, Adventures in Paradise, and Bubbly Lattitude. “We had a retail store on Sanibel that got destroyed during Hurricane Ian. As we contemplated re-building, we discovered that 5 other Sanibel businesses had moved to Bell Tower. We love the central and easy to get to location, so we decided to open shop.”
