Interstellar AMAZING!!!

If this is what space smells like then beam me up, Scotty!!! I really didn’t know what to expect for this and I really bought it because 1) it’s space and 2) I think the label is beautiful. I did not think I would fall for this candle and that I would now be questioning space EVEN MORE! It kinda smells fruity almost(?) and carbonated and flat at the same time (I realize that probably makes no sense but I don’t know how else to describe it!!!) I definitely recommend giving it a try, I think you too will be blown away by how it smells! And it has glitter, so that in itself is reason enough to try it!!! Love it!


I don’t even know where to begin. The label? The scent? The fact that I want to eat this candle? All are valid starting points lol. This label is the CUTEST. I love it so so much!!! The scent is absolutely drool-worthy. What an incredible mix and it really makes me want pancakes and blueberries, both things I’m not a huge fan of lol. I will be buying this in a larger size. It is on my list of a bajillion favourites!


This candle reminds me of sitting in a cafe (remember those days???) and reading my book, people watching, and smelling the incredible smells of the coffee being made. I know nothing about coffee as I don’t drink it, but if this were a brew I think it would taste incredible! Highly recommend!!!

Give me ALL the Blue!!!

Wow! I can’t even begin to describe how incredible this candle is. The scent notes are strong in this one and I am so here for it! It smells like the most amazing fruit-filled kitchen and I. Am. Here. For. It! Can’t get enough of it! Will be buying a larger one FOR SURE!

I want a cookie now...

OH. EM. GEE. YUM!!!!! This candle is soft and sweet and like it says on the label, “Like a warm hug from Nonna.” It is so incredibly delicious and the label is just perfect! I love this one so much. Food candles are so perfect!!!!

Super quick shipping

I received this really quickly! It is adorable and my husband loved it!

Brought up wonderful memories!

I bought a few of these cute candles for my husband as stocking stuffers for Christmas! He absolutely loved the Hardware store scent because it reminded him of his grandfather. We visited his mom the day after Christmas and we decided to regift her the candle instead and immediately upon opening it she said it reminded her of her late father (his grandpa). It totally made Christmas that much more special and brought back some great family memories and stories ❤️❤️❤️Thank you Dio candle for making my husband’s and mother-in-laws Christmas one to remember!🎄❤️

Exciting Scents as Christmas Presents

I got these as Christmas gifts for my family because I love how obscure and specific the scents are so they can be personal to each of my loved ones. The Star Trek one really does smell like adventure and I think dad will love it. Hardware store smells a little more like the stale chocolates than motor oil I was imagining but it’s still really nice, and I like that there was this masculine option for my brother. Ancient Egypt I thought would be more .. dusty? idk but it has a strong perfumy quality to it that’s heavy - so I’m not sure if mom will like it since she’s allergic to perfume but I took that chance when I ordered candles online hahaha - she loves stuff about ancient Egypt though so it’s the thought that counts. Strawberry shortcake is very sweet and I’m hoping it smells like the popsicles bars my sister used to eat when we were little when it’s lit. I travel to go home so having something small to give as gifts helps with luggage weight. I also appreciated that the package was small to reduce waste, and I appreciated the text with a gif from The Office to say it was delivered. 😂 They all probably smell even better when they’re lit so I’m excited to smell them at their peak once my family opens them for Christmas (hopefully one at a time). Thank you Dio!!!!!!

Very promptly delivered to and well packaged. Not sure if it smells like an old hardware store or not. Have to wait to see what my husband has to say Christmas morning.
