This review is unique in that I don’t have a sense of smell….but I can read descriptions! I bought the Video Store candle for my sister for her birthday! We are women at the back end of 40, and I wanted to put together a gift basket for her full of nostalgia, since life has brought many challenges in this stage of life. Enter video store of the 90’s. The moment she opened the lid, she was full of tears, followed by laughter from the “scent notes”. She lit it up and called later that day to say the “vhs tape and dirt smells were coming through and blending with butter and popcorn”! She was beyond happy…and still emotional. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I’m excited to order more of these amazing and well described candles! Yes, even for myself. At least my husband and company will be able to enjoy my choices! Love this company! P. S. The personal note and cute sticker were extra fabulous touches!
The scent makes me feel like I am walking around BlockBuster with my dad on Friday night in 1998 trying to decide what movies to rent for the weekend. And I have no words that seem good enough to describe for how happy of a feeling that is.
Shipping was super fast and packaging was great. Will 10/10 be ordering again!
They nailed it with scent of the Video Store candle, it took me right back to my weekly visits!
I honestly don't understand the magic of this candle. Once lit, I'm instantly transported to my favorite video store in 2003. It smells exactly the same, yet somehow better, giving me the intense sense memory of standing in the horror section, trying to decide if I want to rent something I've already seen or an 80s classic I haven't seen yet. I might get some candy, too. Then I realize that it's 20 years later, and I'm staring at a candle. Sorcery! Seriously, though. This candle smells fantastic, hits all the nostalgia buttons, and burns both evenly and cleanly. I was a first-time buyer, but I'll definitely be back!
I LOVE the unique scents Dio offers!!! I've bought 5-6 different ones so far. I love the video store one because it reminds me of renting vhs tapes from Hollywood video or blockbuster as a kid. It smells like popcorn, carpet and plastic just like it says, but in a very good smelling way!!!
Smells perfect! Burns cleanly and evenly.
I was skeptical when I opened the package, but when I smelled it, I immediately went back to summer nights when my friend's mom would bring us to the "Video Store" to get movies to watch during sleepovers. It felt like I had walked right back in and somebody had spilled a soda or popcorn all over the front and they were cleaning up. It's such a nostalgic candle!
It definitely exceeded my expectations and I love it
