My husband and I created personalized scents for candles and perfume/cologne. We had so much fun mixing our scents and finding what best suited our moods. We had plenty of time to create what we wanted. Our sales associate was very experienced and kind. We loved that the workshop was BYOB. What a great idea for couples, girls date, or mother daughter activity! We will definitely be back!
I had a great time at the workshop! Lilly helped me and I love the candle and perfume I made! I'll be back with my daughter! Thanks!
Candle / Perfume Workshop Galena
The experience is worth every penny. Lindsey urged us not to overthink our scents and reminded us to keep our actions intent based. It was so relaxing to dedicate an hour to myself and what I want, while handcrafting a truly beautiful candle. Booking my next visit & bringing more folks with me!
I can't say enough about this scent. I wear this every day. It makes me feel more feminine. I get whiffs of it throughout the day. I have never smelled anything like it. This will forever be in my collection.
Hosted a bachelorette party that was kicked off by doing a scent workshop. I planned from Colorado and they made it simple and stress free to plan, even from that far away. They were beyond accommodating with all our requests and bigger group size, they helped us get into a fun ladies night vibe with a good playlist, and made sure everyone got one on one help to make the scent they would be excited about.
It was such a good experience that one of the other brides to be in the party cancelled her wine tasting for her upcoming bachelorette party and rescheduled to come back with her friends and do this instead.
I got the joyful kit for my daughter's birthday and it is even better than I expected! Emma has created her first perfume and it's absolutely dreamy and so very ' her '
I will be purchasing another kit, or two, because of the excellent quality and the sheer fun of creating a custom scent!
The customer service is fantastic also. I had a question about my order and it was answered on a weekend very quickly and with such graciousness.
Love this candle so much I ordered 3!!!
This was a nice evening with a bottle of wine we bought on the corner at Galena River Wine & Chees while we learned to blend scents and create a candle or two. I like that my scents were recorded so I can order extra candles in the future. Well worth the time and money!
I took my boyfriend here as a surprise because he's obsessed with colognes, candles, and scents. We had the most amazing time making our own products, learning about the process, etc. I had a ton of fun in the process and already decided to order tons for Mother's Day.
Received the Tobacco, Amber & Moss candle as a gift and didn't think the smell who be good based on the description. However, I love it. I don't smell tobacco, have no idea what amber would smell like or if it even has a scent and moss? - no clue on the smell of that. The scent is clean and not too musty or over-powering. I don't know the scent name because it is unclear from the writing. Is it Hoiye Cologne or Houje Cologne? Neither came up in the search on this site.
My husband and I came in for a candle class-we each made two candles. It was my second time but it was just as much fun as the first. Both times were their own unique experience. Love our candles!
We thoroughly enjoyed the class!
The Scent Workshop was a lot of fun with girlfriends. You get to make your own scent for your own candle and enjoy being with your friend! It was a great night with great friends!!
My BF an I visited Galena during the holiday season and the scent workshop candle making & perfume workshop was a perfect afternoon activity for us. A new experience to both of us and we love the candles and perfume oils we made - 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for something to do!
Make Scent Personal
We have some very unfortunate news to share: the Greensboro shop for Scent Workshop is closing. The Friendly Center (run by a company called CBL) recently gave us notice that they are re-leasing our space to a larger company. We have until August 5 to vacate our shop—the space that we renovated and have been serving you from for the past 2.5 years.
Do you believe in the power of Vision Boards? I do so much that I changed my Lock Screen on my phone to be my Vision Board, and I update it annually. Let us show you how in this quick tutorial.
Our favorite season is finally here, and we're thrilled to introduce you to our fall scents, as well as a new signature scent. This collection represents our favorite scent memories of autumn.
