Really does smell like a thunderstorm! Always great service from this shop.

I liked the smell of the candle, and the design

Packaging was great, and the speed in which we got the items was incredible. We ordered 2 small candles (which was the smell of rain)and even though they were small(we knew what we ordered)they were aromic, and conveyed the essence of the smell of rain quite well. I loved the fact that I got an immediate response upon ordering from the sellers..They same like great people. Thank you guys for being proffessional, yet very hands on!!!

Great wax melts. They have a very fresh strong scent. The clean rain smell is nice. Maybe a little more floral than I was expecting. Still a great product and fast shipping!

Amazong customer service

The Dio Candle Company cares SO much about their customers. I ordered the thunderstorm candle and not only was the packing put in with care, there was also a handwritten thank you note in the box! As for the candle it smells amazing! Not exactly the smell I was looking for... but still very good. It has a strong sandalwood scent to it and I was looking for a good petricor smelling candle. However, that was to be expected from ordering online and not being able to actually smell it. All in all I would definitely recommend and will buy from here again!

after rain smell

I was looking for a scent thats like after the rain on concrete and I found this candle. I read through all the reviews and decided to try it for myself. It is a bit floraly when you smell it at first which is off putting but once it melted more you can really smell the petrichor smell. Its not concrete exactly but its the closest thing ive found so far.

Quality Candles

Highly quality candle. Candle smells so good. I will definitely be making purchases from this company in the future. Arrived very fast!!! Thank you.

It really does smell as it says on the tin! It's a little overwhelming putting it to your nose and inhaling, but is lovely and mellow once lit.

Perfect for Friday Nights

I like to light this when I'm watching thunderstorm livestreams. It also pairs well with Rhythm of the Rain by the Cascades when fully clothed at the far end of a shower with the lights off (don't knock it 'til you try it), just a very immersive experience overall. I find that most of the 'sniffing dirt during a storm' smell is when it's not lit, and a lily scent comes through more when it is.

Thunderstorm Rocks!

I finally found the perfect smell Thunderstorm brings back warm memories, it's like bringing the outdoors indoors you just don't get soaked , this scent is a keeper for sure.

My Son Loves It

My son loves thunderstorms and so I got him this candle in a small size as a gift. He enjoys the scent and has asked for a bigger size. So, it's a winner.
