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!

Listen, we know this is going to be tough to hear, but you’ve probably been breaking some very important candle-burning rules. We know what you’re thinking... You don’t just light your candle all willy-nilly and just walk away? The simple answer— no. There are actually a variety of things you may be unknowingly doing that are keeping you from really experiencing (and enjoying) the most your candle has to offer.
