Great scents!

Bought the Dio Dew and Hardware Store scents, the Dew is scary accurate and the Hardware Store isn’t exactly what you think, but it’s its own unique scent experience!

Love all their candle

Just had to stock up on the earth candle! It smells exactly like the soil on a hot summers day after rain.

My favorite candle!

This candle smells like the wonderful small-town hardware stores of my childhood. I love it.

Carly J. (Franklin, NC)

I ordered three candles from this company! I’m expecting and had a craving for a certain smell… something like a Lowe’s or Home Depot and my OB recommended I find a soy candle close to the smell… I am so glad I found this company! I found exactly what I needed.

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!

Heather R.F.P. (Philadelphia, PA)

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
