Fragrance Feud: Finding A Scent That Works For You Both
September 09, 20212 min read
One of the most ignored but vital aspects of your home is its signature fragrance. Afterall, one of the first things someone notices when they enter your home is the smell, and no one likes a bad first impression, right? To this day, certain scents might bring back a fond memory of childhood— the smell of freshly mown grass, bright new buds of honeysuckle, or the mouthwatering aroma of your mom’s freshly baked apple pie.
Whatever it is, your signature scent should make a (good) statement with visitors to your home. So… what happens when you and your partner can’t agree on a fragrance? Are you doomed to have a subtly stinky home forever?! Nah, we’ve got you covered, don’t worry.
If nothing on the shelf is working for the both of you, our solution is to create one that will. Home should be a place where all occupants feel welcome and represented, and sometimes that means a touch of compromise. This way, everyone can have their cake and eat their candle too… or something like that. Now, when it comes to picking out paint colors that you both agree on…you’re on your own.
At Kalamazoo Candle Co., we make it so easy for couples to design their own unique candle from start to finish. You’ll have the opportunity to fuse and blend scents, choose the vessel that best suits your style, and get in person step-by-step help from one of our candle making experts! Not only is this an excellent way to find a home fragrance that you will both love, but it’s kind of the perfect date idea, too. Better yet, make it a group event and invite your friends or family for some quality bonding time!
Bonus: If you find that candle making is totally your thing and you want to try your hand at it in the comfort of your own home, we can help you out there, too! Our DIY Candle Making Kits come in a variety of fragrances and are a fun and easy way to put a personal touch on gifts for loved ones. (Plus, you can totally humble-brag that you’re the crafty type that makes high-quality gifts, so it’s a win-win.)

Candles are a great way to liven up any space from a home decor and fragrance perspective, but when exactly did candles become more about aesthetics than simply provide light? Let’s take a stroll through the ages, shall we?
You know when you go to the store and buy a new candle and you cannot wait to get home to try it out? You clean your space, light that candle, and life is good.
But then, when you blow it out, half of the candle has already melted away and disappeared! Yeah, we hate when that happens too. Commitment to quality should start at the foundation, which is why Kalamazoo Candle Company uses only pure soy wax for our candle base. Here are our reasons why.
We’ve succeeded in convincing you to repurpose your Kalamazoo Candle Co. jars, hooray! If you’ve ever spilled hot wax on clothing or… well… anywhere, you already know how impossible it can be to remove. With that in mind, it must be equally difficult to clear out the wax remnants and residue from your used up candle jars, right? No way! We’ve got you.
