People are invited to celebrate the opening of Olfactory Scent Studio, at 12113 Elm Creek Blvd. N., in the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove. Check out the new store and enjoy a buy-one-get-one deal on all candles.

The grand open festivities will be Thursday, June 13, from 1 to 9 p.m. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony with the I-94 Chamber at 1 p.m.

At Olfactory Scent Studio, guests choose from up to 150 pure fragrance oils to curate their own custom scents for candles, reed diffusers, room/linen sprays and more. The experience starts with smelling. As part of the process, guests list some of their favorite scents as they smell pre-poured uniquely scented candles. They then take a seat at the blending bar where scent stylists help them to select two or three of their favorite fragrance oils that will blend perfectly together. The guest then mixes their choice of oils and creates their own unique scent that they will hand pour into a candle or other application.

Candles at Olfactory Scent Studio are made from chemical-free natural soy and are comparable to the candles that are found in high-end boutiques. People can buy candles off the shelf or make their own. The fragrance options are endless and include: mint leaf, orange zest, eucalyptus, lavender and lemon as well as more uncommon scents like bamboo, champagne, bourbon, olive blossom and campfire.

The blending bar seats up to 20 guests and while the experience is perfect for walk-in guests, the store also books parties for scent-blending experiences. Once blended, candles are poured into jars which come in different sizes and colors. People can also have it personalized with a card or label.
