About Us

Welcome to 2021

Our Studio in Colorado Springs  is Open by appointment for July, Aug, and Sept.
We are taking appointments for Mon, Wed, Fri and Sat 11am-4pm
Please call, text (612-669-3541) or email waxwerkscandles@aol.com to set it up.

Our first Craft Show of the Year is August 7th – 8th in Woodland Park, CO

We are currently busy making Candles and Smelly Bears.
Our Fall Schedule consists of 7 Shows.
They are listed below.
Feel free to email the Candlemaker with any questions you have or to make an appointment to come to the Studio.

We sell candles here on the website, At Local Craft shows in Colorado, And at our Studio in Colorado Springs.
Ordering is available online. You can choose to pick up your order at the studio or have it shipped.
During Winter orders take a little longer due to cold/snow.  Let us know when you need your candles and we can adjust for your needs.
If the shipping seems to be too high, send us an email. The computer doesn’t always put more than one candle in a package. We can physically weigh it out and get back to you with an accurate shipping cost.
If you place an order and the shipping is too much, we will automatically refund you via Paypal.

Here at Smart-Scents we have been hand crafting candles for over 40 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 Most Popular Lines fall under this category…Smelly Bears, Wax Air fresheners; Beeswax Lotion Bars;
and our Companion Jars (Personal Air Fresheners.) Companion Jars are available at the Studio and in person at the shows we do, but not online.
In addition we also make Carved Candles, Memorial Candles and some
more Traditional Candles in different shapes and scents. Plus Twisty Tapers, Wax Melts and container candles.

It’s 2021 and we are starting our eighth 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, Texas and Colorado Renaissance Festivals, I do enjoy not driving all those miles.
I have added extra web pages, for those customers who have expressed an interest, to order
online 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.
2018 marked my last year having a shop at the Colorado Renaissance Festival.
It’s a great little summer faire on the side of the mountain.
But times have changed for me.
This Spring, the Candlemaker made a change to the Smart Scents page…it will include Create you own Pillar Candle, where you can choose the
Shape & Size of the Candle and then Pick the Color and Scent.
It will also have the Wax Melts on this page.
People have been Ordering and Creating their own Pillar Candles at the Studio…but it has not been available online before this.

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. We have single Unity Candles, Carved Tapers, Memory Candles and candles for the Mothers and even options for including Children.

The Candlemaker has a small studio in Colorado Springs, hours are by appointment only. Just text, email or call
to set up a time. Our studio used to be mainly for our Bridal Customers but we expanded it by client request.
With 2020 and Covid came the closing of all non essential businesses (including my Studio) and the cancellation of all Craft Shows.
When we were allowed to reopen the Candlemaker added more studio hours.
And now we are into a New Year!

NOTE:
Last Year’s  Holiday Open House & Gift Sale was a success.

we made it the first 2 Weekends in December
We are already planning it for the 2nd weekend of Dec in 2021.
But we are open to change. Let’s see how the year goes.

Below is our Schedule of shows for 2021. As we get the dates for these shows, they will be filled in.
And perhaps a few more shows also.

OUR NEWEST PROJECT...we are working with Midlund West Memorials out of Irving, TX (#2millioncandles)
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.
I am hoping to find the time to put an album up on my the Facebook Page, Rose the Candlemaker.
