LOVE IT!

I first discover this candle and Kalamazoo Candle Company while staying in an AirBNB in California. I fell in love with the scent of this sugared space candle and searched the Internet for how I could have one for my home. After a long search I discovered they were only for purchase for fundraising or at stores in Michigan only. I am so happy that Kalamazoo finally has a site where I can purchase my own and have it shipped to me in Tampa Florida. YAY! Thanks so much! :)

Smells amazing

This really smells like yummy coffee-makes the house smell wonderful

Disappointed

This smells amazing in the jar. Not sure why when I light it my home does not smell the way the candle does. I can barely smell the candle at all and I have to go in the kitchen to see if it is still burning. Bummer of a candle for me!! Would not buy again.

SO MUCH FUN!

i attended this class for my friends bridal shower and it was so much fun! we loved getting a tour of the shop and seeing how it's all made and how the business all started! i was able to smell all the scents/fragrances and mix up whatever i wanted to make my own personal candle... I even got to name it whatever i wanted! (i mixed Smitten & Obsidian :) smells amazing!) i am definitely planning to come back with my mom and sister! i recommend attending a class!! :)

Thanks for your review, Jaila! We had so much fun helping you all celebrate M's big day :)

Name Doesn't Do Justice to It's Great Scent

What an uplifting, layered, and "bright" scent. Not at all dark or hard like obsidian.
A room full of this scent is the perfect way to start Spring after such a dreary winter.
Great addition to KZ Candle Company!!
Love it

Unbelievably Awesome

I have ALWAYS loved the smell of fresh cut grass. I used to jokingly say that if the scent was bottled, I would wear it as perfume. I was pleasantly surprised to find it in candle form at Sticks & Stones, downtown Kalamazoo. The scent is very soothing on any day; however, to experience springtime in the middle of winter is indescribable! It is a bonus that the candles are made locally AND are made w/natural soy! I am such a happy camper! #TeamKalamazooCandleCompany #FreshCutGrass

If it smelled any more like beer, I'd try to drink it!

Love the scent of this candle! It lingers and it burns so clean.

Truly Smitten

my soon to be wife found this candle a year or two ago and she gave it to me as a gift. this candle is by far our favorite out of all candles ever! it is to the point that when ever i am missing her or if its lit i can't stop thinking of her. this is a great candle that both men and women will love!!!

Memories

This candle reminds me of my great grandmother!:heart_eyes:

Your Go-To Christmas Candle

I have three tins of this scent just waiting to fill my house with fresh cut balsam fir during the holiday season. This scent makes up for the tree when it looses its fresh cut scent. Absolutely love it!

Coffee Shop in Your Very Own Home!

This candle has a powerful punch of coffee house aroma! I love lighting this on fall and winter days when it's dreary. It fills up a room very nicely with the warmth and smell of a top notch latte!

Best smelling candle ever

This is my go to candle for everything, I love how fresh it smells. I always burn it while I clean, makes me feel like I did an extra amazing job haha!

Like living on a golf course!

Fresh cut grass is my favorite smell ever, so I loved this candle! It's almost gone so it's time for me to sick up on some more!

Expensive spa smell

I love how this candle smells, I purchased one earlier this year on an Art Hop night. Smells wonderful!!

Bamboo

I love Kalamazoo Candle Company candles and I especially love their Bamboo candle. This scent is nice and inviting but not too overpowering. These candles burn SO CLEAN and they last a long time. These candles also make the best gifts. They are perfect to pack in your bag for a nice hostess gift or birthday present. I am excited to see they are doing personalization on their candles as well, I am definitely keeping that in mind for my wedding. Buy local, support your community!

Reminisce

This is a wonderful smelling candle. It makes me think of GVSU's Arboretum in Allendale. All Kalamazoo candles last a long time! I had this in my old home in Kalamazoo - takes me back to those memories, too.

Great fall scent

Nothing gets you in the mood more than pumpkin! Great scent....

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS CANDLE

The description of this candle says it all, I can't live without it!! This candle is not just a Fall sent in my house, I buy it in bulk so I have it on hand year round. For a long lasting, clean burning candle there is no other candle brand to buy. Kalamazoo Candle Company is the best!! ♡♡

Amazing day

I was in my brothers wedding 2 years ago and i came across this smell. It was an amazing candle called Kalamazoo candle company. I live in indiana and was just up in michigan for a wedding so didnt have time to investigate where. I was looking on facebook Facebook a couple weeks ago when an advertisement came across for Kalamazoo candle company. I was so excited i stopped everything and order 2 candles and a bag. Thank u for everything your company stands for and for making my house smell amazing!!!! Reasonable prices anf wonderful quality.

Kalamazoo Love

My daughter introduced me to Kalamazoo Candle Company when she had them on her Christmas wish list one year. Her favorites are I've Got A Gal and Lemongrass. My favorite.... all of them! These candles smell so fresh and the scents are not overpowering but rather, well, delicious! They are now my go to gift for every occassion.

Amazing!

A friend of mine who lived in K-Zoo had this candle and it smelled amazing! Keep up the good work guys!

My fave!

I have tried almost all of the scents and this is by far my favorite! A light, fresh, reminder of a relaxing day at the beach. I bring these candles as hostess gifts for my whole family!

Warm apple pie!

This candle is a new seasonal favorite for me! I purchased it at Gull Meadow Farms last weekend and want to give them as holiday gifts this year! The nicest scent, packaging, price, and they burn for a long time!

Love, Love, Love!!!

These are the best candles! I love to give a local product for a gift. The vanilla latte is my favorite. It makes the whole house smell like a coffee shop! For those of us that are huge Kalamazoo history buffs, we really love the old pics on the lids.

Fresh Laundry

This candle reminds me of my crisp, freshly washed linens that hung in bright sunshine and summer breezes to dry as a kid... it's nostalgic and refreshing.

Best in quality and scent

My first candle from this company was "I Got A Gal" which my husband bought for me. This is a scent everyone will love We enjoy giving Kalamazoo Candle Co. Candles as gifts....something personal from our lovely city!

Love These Candles

I have several go-to's for my home and for gifts, but "I've Got a Gal" is my favorite. It's such a unique scent. Very fresh and clean. (Other faves are Arboretum and Fresh Cut Grass.)
Thanks for doing what you do, Adam!

Tied for favorite!

This amazing candle is definitely one of my favorites, currently in our guest room and kitchen (yes we keep it out year-round), this greats us with a mild sweet scent right when we walk in our home even without being lit. The scent is perfect for a sweet background scent, perfect for any room that you want a little something without being overwhelming. When storing, we put in our linen closet for a nice fresh minty scent, the candle really holds up well even when not lit!

LOVE THIS CANDLE!!!

Currently tied for my favorite candle (tied with Candy Cane Lane), these candles have the purest scent, and will take you right back to a breezy summer day on Lake Michigan! As a coastal geologist who spends the majority of my life on North Carolina and Alabama shorelines, this candle brings a bit of home wherever I go, and is on my wishlist for every birthday or holiday. Perfect as a beautiful gift, even better in every room of your home!

pumpkin patch

Classic smell to get you in the mood for fall. Your house smells breathtaking!!

A yummy delight!

This is the most delicious creamy sweet scent. I like that fact that it is heavy on the sweet vanilla cream and easy on the coffee, but you still get it. After burning for only 2 hours the scent filled my house and the scent hung there overnight and the next day!!!! I placed the unlit candle in my bedroom with the lid off and it scented my entire room for 2 days (then I put the lid on).
The burn was great (8 out of 10) and the throw was amazing (12 out of 10- no joke!)
Glad I found you at The Vintage Market! I will be purchasing more!!! THANK YOU for such a great product!!! :-D

Great scent

This candle has a terrific cinnamon scent and really makes my house smell like fall and baking! Love it!

Arboretum

Our favorite scent!

Arboretum is our favorite scent from Kalamazoo Candle Company! It's a nice, homey scent with a not-overpowering aroma of apples and cinnamon. We often just leave the lid off and still get a nice fragrance around the room!

This scent is my FAVORITE!! it smells just like I walked onto a campsite and can roast some smores! love how the candles burn so cleanly too! LOVE all around!

LOVE

These burn forever and smell so sweet! A Dozen Roses is my favorite so far. Can't wait to try out some more!

My favorite

Smells so fresh! Love to burn this candle while cleaning the house.

Best candles ever

Absolutely love these candles. The scent continues until the very end and the dozen roses makes me think of warm summer days sitting on the porch and smelling the rose bushes from my yard... one of the best scents ever

Exceptionally cinnamon!

What a great scent to burn! Smells like the real deal and is very hearty. Love this scent!

True Story

The name of this scent is 100% on point. It's like summer in a jar!

My Favorite

This was the first Kalamazoo Candle that I ever bought. I love it! I love giving this one as a gift, particularly for weddings. It has such a nice fresh subtle smell that just makes the house smell wonderful.

Love!

My boyfriend and I found this candle at a little shop on Mackinac Island and fell in love with the smell and that it's from Kalamazoo where he recently moved! I could buy every scent but this one is my favorite!

The most heavenly smell!

I was given one of these deliciously scented candles for my birthday. I fell in love the first time I smelled it! It's such a sweet, fresh and clean smell! I love how homey it makes my house feel. Love love love!!

Amazing

This really does a good job at permeating your whole area where the candle is burned! Smells amazing.

Fresh!

No matter what time of year, the lemongrass scent always transports me to a warm spring day, with the breeze blowing the scent of fresh lemons through the air. I love all of these candles, but this one has always been my favorite!

Candles with Memories

I've Got a Gal is my absolute favorite scent! The candles burn wonderful and for hours and hours. Having grown up in Kalamazoo I especially enjoy all of the photos on the tins...memories :) Adam has created not just wonderfully scented candles but the ideal packaging from the tins to the gift bags and now even tags!

The smell of fall

Every fall I have to get this pumpkin candle at the market. It is sweet and warm smelling and it just ooozes fall goodness. I always get compliments from guests when I have it burning!

Awesome candle!

This is the first candle I smelled from Kalamazoo Candle Co and I bought it! It smells so good, I just love it. I've switched from buying cheap candles to buying quality soy candles and these are so worth the price.
