A Great Gift

I bought this for my sister who doesn't like most candles and prefers masculine scents. She enjoys the smell and described it as "manly Christmas." I agree with that description. Thank you!

This is one of my absolute favorites!!! It's a strange favorite candle for a woman! I hope DIO never discontinues this one. It's smell is SO unique, no other candle smells like this one. Try it, I don't think you'll be disappointed!

Hardware store candle

Amazing scent reminds me of the old clapboard hardware store in my yown when I was a child
The scent of dusty limed and planed wood
Screws paint thinners and oddly stale candy and dusty Metals
Like revisiting a comforting old familiar friend
I have an industrial themed wetroom shower and the candles scent fits perfectly in with it
Well done

Dad loved it!

This was kind of meant as a joke gift, but my dad ended up getting a kick out of it! The candle is so cute and smells great. The price was fair for a specialty candle and it shipped on time.

Boyfriend’s Christmas Present

I bought this for my boyfriend as a Christmas present. He absolutely loves the scent! It smells so good!

Dad loved it!

Dads are hard to buy for, right? So sort of as a joke, I purchased the Hardware store scented candle for my dad for Christmas. And it is great! My dad got a kick out of it, because he loves hardware stores, and it smells wonderful. The company was timely with their order and I think it is a good price for a specialty candle.

Great Stocking Stuffer

I initially got the hardware store candle as a gag gift for a coworker, who jokes about making candles in the scents of work. So, it hit on a private joke and did smell reminiscent of a hardware store. But, it actually still smelled good at the same time. Great price and shipping too.
