New build-a-candle store opens at La Encantada

"We're native Tucsonans and we felt this would be the best spot for this concept," said Tim Stoner, owner of The Candle Store at La Encantada.

"Pillars, jar candles soon to have taper candles."

Tim Stoner and his family say this is a first of its kind in our area.

After you pick your favorite scent, you pick the color. The candle store says the whole process takes about 20 minutes. Letting your candle set takes 24 hours.

"Our candles are unique simply because they're all made here in house. They're made with a variety of waxes with top tier fragrances," said Stoner.

To start, you can step over to the candle bar to create your very own.

"We can pretty much do any fragrance that anyone would like. We can create your own fragrance if you'd like and color," said Stoner.

First you pick a canister. Then a fragrance. "Celestial nights, frosted juniper, rain."

After you pick your favorite scent, comes picking the color. The candle store says the whole process takes about 20 minutes. Letting your candle set does take 24 hours

"We're not a franchise. This is the first of its kind. We hope to have more than one, one day, but we're just going to take care of this one as long as we can," said Stoner.

And in the future they're looking to add a few things.

Shop your favorite scents in pre-made candles, or create your own. This build-a-candle store is the first of its kind in Tucson.

"We're going to be introducing a coffee bar here, ice tea bar, which will be fun but we're just excited where we're going," said Stoner.
