When the butcher, baker, and candlestick maker all got into a tub together, they momentarily deprived the world of candle-lit steak dinners, and the tub felt lukewarm about the experience overall. Make furniture flush with fragrances with today's Groupon: for $16, you get 12 handmade votive candles (a $33 value) at 5B & Co. Candlemakers, located in Weston and Kansas City.
Wielding warm wax and more than 180 wafting scents, 5B & Co. Candlemakers hand pour highly fragrant flambeaus daily. At 5B's historic Weston or Brookside locations, candle connoisseurs can peruse a wealth of perfumed lanterns, including creative customer favorites such as the Rawhide (leather), Monkey Burps (banana), and Get the Smell Outta Here, a suitable choice for smokers and flatulent salamanders. 5B also mixes familiar fragrances, such as Cinnamon Vanilla and Country Spice, and scents more personal to their maker, such as Amy's Wedding, Grandpa's Pipe, and Clean Undies. Each votive blazes for around 15–18 hours and may fill an entire room or two with its omnipresent odor.
