What you'll do

Throw your own private candle making party! Hosted by clean, coastal-inspired fragrance company, Malibu Apothecary, guests can either participate in a group or private experience with friends to create their very own custom candle! You can choose your own vessel and scent with complimentary gift wrapping!

++ 5% of the proceeds go to Heal the Bay for coastal conservation.

INCLUDING
candle container
custom label design
gift wrapping
custom essential oil-infused scents
drinks
snacks

Create, combine, and choose your favorite scents while learning the basics of fragrance composition. After you've whipped up your new favorite fragrance oil, I'll show you the process of how to create a candle. Each guest will get to choose their container from a selection of colorful vessels. Then you will mix your fragrance with warm wax, stir, pour, and wait to cure!

While we wait for our candles to cure (~1.5hr), it is time to chat and chill! There will be an assortment of refreshments and light appetizers for guests to enjoy as we explain the differences between clean and toxic fragrances + a brief history of the art and science of perfumery.

Additionally, guests can also design a personalized label on-site! Leave home with not only a custom candle with food and friends, but a new knowledge of candle making!

Malibu Apothecary started as a love for travel, wellness, and evocative fragrance. This passion led founder, Claire Ellis, around the globe; from vacations in the Caribbean, months in the Côte d'Azur, to a solo trip around Asia. With a mantra and belief that no beach should be left unexplored, Claire aimed to capture the spirit of these exotic locales through fragrance. She used her knowledge of scent from perfumery school in Grasse and started hand-pouring candles as a hobby in her SoCal apartment. It was then that Claire discovered the toxicity and unethical standards that exist in today’s candle industry. Ultimately, graduating from wax-coated floors and a lost rent deposit, Malibu Apothecary today is a reflection of a passion for clean, non-toxic living and a thirst for the undiscovered that inspires her travels and creations.

Incredible date experience. I would definitely do this again! Claire does a great job making you feel welcome, and she’s explains in details everything you’d need to know.

Claire was great! The candle making was simple and informative, and the conversation made the hours breeze by! She had an assortment of scented candles for us to mix and she even found a specific one that lined up with my preferences! Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting to try

What a great experience learning about the fragrance industry! From the pitfalls of the fragrance industry to how Claire is attempting to break ground in making a safer, more sustainable candle, the whole experience was enlightening in how little we think of the impact something as small as fragrance can have, and how much effort and resource go into smelling good. Oh, and the complimentary snacks and wine were a nice touch too!

I absolutely loved the time I spent creating a candle! If you have the opportunity to do this at least once, you should definitely try something like this.

This experience was great! All of my party enjoyed the experience and appreciated the personalization of it all. We didn’t have an overview of the history of candle making but our group was talking most of the time. Overall great experience :)
