My family has been running a candle company since 1866 so I was born in this are, and I will teach you how to create your personal scented candle. The workshop includes a theoretic and practical part. I will explain you how fragrances and candles are produced and classified, then you will choose your favorite fragrance among a wide range of fragrances and I will teach you how to melt them with wax and how to create a scented candle.
While we will wait for the scented candle to solidify we will have a drink and some typical Italian snack.

Candles are my family business since 1866 and I love candle-making, so I look forward to sharing this experience with you. I think that a candle may change the atmosphere of the space you live in so I would be really glad if you can bring back home a "piece" of this experience.

Truly one of the most special experiences you will have in Florence! Sabrina & Luciano are very warm and inspiring couple, who welcomed us like good old friends, not strangers. It was very interesting and special to find out and exciting history about candle making and have guidance in trying different scents to recognize hidden notes of it’s complex compositions. And lastly, the location, the view and the setting of the experience is something you will not be able to imagine - guarantee. I would and I do recommend the experience for everybody very much.

This is the FIRST time my husband and l have ever done an Airbnb experience and it was amazing! Probably the highlight of our five day trip in Florence and we will treasure this memory for a long time. Sabrina fills the experience with history and information so you don’t only get a wonderful smelling candle but also an understanding of the art & craft. After that her and her husband shared great insider tips on dinner and aperitif location away from the touristy restaurants . Great people, great experience and great value - thank you.

Great opportunity to make a scented candle with a great host. She has a lot of knowledge on scents and candle making. Very cool experience with a local host who provided a great opportunity and her husband provided some great suggestions for where to eat/drink.

Both Sabrina and Luciano are really friendly and welcoming, perfect balance between learning and also, well, not feeling like you’re a random customer. It was two good hours spent in their company and the view from their home is absolutely beautiful! ✨ Loved learning about the history of the factory and making my own candle felt amazing. Only downside is that I don’t know if I want to burn it now 😂

This was such a lovely experience! I was welcomed into Sabrina & Luciano’s stunning home (which has amazing views!) & I found the whole experience of making the candle fascinating. Interesting to learn the history of their company & the candle scents are wonderful, I am planning on ordering some more now that I am back home! Also had some delicious snacks & very nice bubbly whilst chatting about many different things. I would highly recommend this for a special holiday keepsake & a very welcoming experience to Florence!
