plan a party
Planning a holiday party, birthday celebration, bachelorette party, work outing or a girls' day out? Your group will have a unique, fun, and memorable experience at Palmetto Scent Studio!
How it Works
First, your group will explore our wall of 120+ true-to-scent candles, and make a list of favorite scents. Next, you’ll be invited to select from a range of a products/containers, varying in size and style, or you can pre-select a jar/product for your group (prices range from $16-$48 depending on product/container and our kids' party packages have special pricing). Your group will then sit at the fragrance bar, where our staff will guide each person through selecting two or three scents that will blend perfectly to create a unique custom-scented blend. Each person will get to design a label, blend their fragrance oils, and pour a one-of-a-kind candle. For parties, we offer a custom-label option if you want your group to have a specially-printed label to commemorate the occasion.
Plan on about 45-60 minutes in-studio, depending on the size of your group. If you are making candles, they take 1-1/2 - 2 hours to cool before they are ready to take home. This is a perfect opportunity to grab a bite to eat at one of the nearby restaurants in the Village. You can swing back by the studio to pick up or one of our team members can deliver to your group at the restaurant!
You also have the option of picking up your candles on another day.
In addition to candles, we have a variety of other home fragrance products as well as a new line of body products that can be custom-scented. There is "no waiting" on products other than candles and soy wax tarts, so these products can be taken with you immediately after making them at the fragrance bar. Check out all of our products!
