About Us

Here at Smart-Scents we have been hand crafting candles for over 36 years. With a love of Candle making and Chemistry alike, Rose the Candlemaker combines her skills with traditional candle making and extends it into new techniques and applying it to Today’s Lifestyles.
Our Newest Lines fall under this category…Smelly Bears, Wax Air fresheners;
Smart-Scents, Wickless Candles for use on a Candlewarmer; and Beeswax Lotion Bars.
In addition to these New Products we also have Carved Candles, Memorial Candles and some
more Traditional Candles in different shapes and scents.
The Studio is open by appointment, just call 612-669-3541 or email waxwerkscandles to set it up.

Ordering is also available online. You can choose to pick up your order at the studio or have it shipped.
Orders are being shipped out within a week. If you need it sooner, just ask for an earlier date.

It’s 2018 and we are well into our fifth year as a Full time Local Artist.
For many years we had been traveling the country doing
Renaissance Festivals. In 2011 we started to back off the traveling. While I miss my customers
at the Arizona, Minnesota, and Texas Renaissance Festivals, I do enjoy not driving all those miles.
I have been adding extra web pages, for those customers who have expressed an interest, to order
online (some are still in the works as I write this) but there are many candles that I make that are not
on the website. And as always, if there is something that you saw at a show or that is not on the website,
email me. I am NOT retiring, just enjoying the house we have and the wonderful climate in Colorado
while pursuing interests as a Local Colorado Artist.
I still have a shop at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
It’s a great little summer faire on the side of the mountain.
If you are in the state during June or July, you should stop by.
It is an 8 weekend show.
We will not be displaying at any Bridal Shows this year but you can always make an appointment at our Studio to see what is available or to ask us for something special.

NEW…we are working with Midlund West Memorials out of Irving, TX.
This is a big project where we are making Memorial Candles for every Fallen Police Officer, Firefighter,
and Military in the United States…these candles will all be sponsored and then donated to the families.
The profits will go to provide tiny homes and aid to homeless Veterans.
For more information and pictures you can take a look at the Facebook Page

I have a small studio in Colorado Springs, hours are by appointment only. Just email or call
to set up a time. Our studio used to be mainly for our Bridal Customers
but we have expanded it by client request. You can pick up a special order to save on shipping
or you can stop by to smell samples of Smelly Bears and Purchase Gifts and Wax Melts.

Small Business Saturday is an annual event for us…We will be open from 10am to 7pm the Saturday
after Thanksgiving, Nov 24th.  The outside and inside will be decorated for Christmas. And there will be
Candles, Smelly Bears, Lotion Bars, Wax Melts and many other wax creations displayed throughout the house.

Come enjoy complementary refreshments of home roasted coffee and home-baked cookies as you meet with
 the Candlemaker and Coffee Roaster and shop in a quiet home setting away from the busy mall.

We do have a separate website for our wedding clients, www.candles4mywedding.com.

Hope you find the website easy to use.
The shipping charges are figured by your shipping location/zip code instead of being a set price for the candle.
If you have a problem or think the shipping is off please call or email us and we will figure it out by hand and get back to you. Sometimes automation does not work.
There are 2 ways to order…Click on the Picture below the text or
Quick Order is available in the sidebar
(for those on their mobile device, Quick Order is at the bottom of the page)

If you want to check out what’s new just go to the page and check. Then when you are ready to order you can either order on that page
or go to the Quick Order. I will add Smelly Bears as the seasons change just like usual.
There is also a Checkout Tab and a Cart Tab on the Top Menu, just under the Main Picture.

You can order on the bottom of each page’
