What do you get when you have a geek girl that loves to create? You get me, Sara Miles-Jewell, Owner & Creator of Imagine Candles. Imagine Candles are geek inspired scents created to represent your favorite themes and characters. The scents are as unique as the names; ranging from fruity and floral to clean and masculine. The candles represent my ever growing love for all things geek, ranging from Lord of the Rings & Doctor Who to My Little Pony and fairy tales with new themes on the horizon. New this year will be Star Wars and Superhero/Villain inspired lines. The candles should appeal to anyone’s geek side, even those on the dark side.
