Love burning a candle at home? Head to Mundane in Cold Spring to create a one-of-a-kind candle that’s unique to you.

Of all the candles in your collection, how many did you pour yourself? If the answer is none, it’s time to take up a new creative activity.

At Mundane, a scent bar that opened in June on Cold Spring’s Main Street, customers can select fragrances, choose vessels, pour essential oils, and name their unique creations. Here’s how it works: Pick a seat at the bar and get acquainted with co-owner Alexandra McGill. Then grab a clipboard and start sniffing samples on the adjacent wall, writing down the ones you absolutely love—McGill will help you select scents that go well together. The aromas that wowed us? Black violet, lemon balm, earl grey, tobacco and honey, and clothesline. Then fill the jigger, pour into your container, and stir. The wax takes about two hours to set, so plan to do a little shopping or grab a bite. For store hours and more information, visit
