Paint Mixers - Wooden Dowels - Dusty Metal Shelves

You’ll remember the nostalgic smell of cement, wooden boards and dowels, dusty boxes of nails on metal shelves and sweet whiffs of stale chocolate by the cash register. This home improvement fragrance is a favorite amongst the home renovation crowd!

Oddly enough, this candle smells like bug spray which is what I think of when I think of a hardware store. I think of a little store in a beachy town and...bug spray 😂😂😂. It doesn't ACTUALLY smell like big spray, but it def reminds me of it!!! It's a nice, clean scent and a pretty pale grey colour!!!

Childhood Memories

This candle it incredible. It smells exactly like my childhood, and spending weekends doing wood work projects with my Dad and Grandpa. It's such unique scent for a candle. The metal lid adds that extra touch. Thank you for this walk down memory lane.

Really smells like the hardware store

It wasn't my favourite from the box but when I smell this candle it brought so many memories. It really smells like an hardware store!

Smells like memories

This candle smells just like when I was younger and went with my dad to the hardware store. The dust and metal just brings back all those days and fun times. I really like the simplicity of the color and label.

Feels Like Home

Growing up in a small town I spent some time at our local Hardware Store because my dad is always doing home improvements and DIY projects. It reminds me of spending time in the garage with my parents fixing and building things. It is a clean and crisp smell with almost a hint of what makes me think of tin cans.

Get Out The Hammer

This was a pretty dang good representation of a hardware store. I don't go into them all too often, but this feels accurate. It kind of made me think of vicks vaporub, which I'm guessing might be the paint or metal smell! Not a top fav, but definitely good!

Nailed it!

This candle smells exactly like a hardware store! Like leather and wood. It is the weirdest thing ever but it is amazing! I don't know how she does it!

nice color !

to me this kinda smells like cough sirup and i have no idea why. I live in a very big city, so we only have huge hardware stores and this candle smells like the department with all the nails ! :D

Sure hit the nail on the head

Hahaha, you see what I did there!?! When I was very young, I loved going to the lumber yard and hardware stores with my father. This candle captures that fresh cut raw wood smell perfectly with hints of the cold metal of nails. Makes me miss those quaint little hardware stores.

Liked this one the best of the January Box

This one smells ok. It does smell like what it says. But do I have any desire to smell that as a candle...not really. More of a novelty. But I did find myself coming back, and smelling it again and again, and each time liking it more and more.

Such a fun prop!

I received this as an extra in my Adorable Monthly Box and man am I happy I have it. Not only is it a functional bottle opener, but it’s also a cool bookstagram prop. I’m getting good use out of this little guy!

Luau in a Jar!

This is such a bright, sweet, bold scent. If you love sweet pineapple, this is definitely the candle for you. Relax, light this candle and imagine you’re drinking a tropical drink on a beach somewhere for an instant vacation.


This is perfect. It has a lovely, sweet, complex tea scent, and a gorgeous label. Perfect for a warm summer’s afternoon. I swear I can smell almost a hint of peach too it too, which makes me love it more.


This is such a wonderful citronella candle. Cute name ? Check. Adorable label? Check. Perfect citronella smell that doesn’t smell chemically or fake? Check! I love this. I’ll be buying one every summer.

I’m Honestly Mad About How Much I Love This

The title says it all. It’s so good. So good it makes me mad because now I have to say I’m a Hipster Salsa lover. If you pick one scent for summer, get this one. It’s fresh, it’s fruity, it’s not too sweet, heck I swear you can smell how tangy it would taste. It’s such a beautiful deep red too. Love it.
