Walking into Mountain Lux Candles, Downtown Golden’s newest and most unique addition, feels a lot more like stepping into an old friend’s home than it does a “store.”
That’s because this is not your average candle shop. Mountain Lux Candles is solely family owned and operated by Sharon and Mark Molnar and their oldest son, Roman, and high school quadruplets Luke, Abby, Julia and Rachael.
“In a lot of ways, we want walking into the store to make you feel like you’re walking into a familiar home, a genuinely comfortable place to be,” said Mark. “We treat all of our customers like friends. We want to see them enjoy their experience and walk away with a custom scented candle they love.”
Ever since Mountain Lux Candles opened its doors, visitors have been in awe of this experience-based store. Many have walked in after seeing “Candles” on the storefront window and have stayed for the immersive experience of making their very own custom scented, premium soy-based candle while chatting with the owners and their kids.
In fact, guests were so intrigued by the idea behind the store that they started bringing in their very own items to transform into candles.
“We are anxious to start working with brides and grooms to help them develop and create a custom scent for their wedding” said Sharon. “They can use their custom creation to scent the venue space, guest favors, gift table, and ceremony space”
Mountain Lux Candles is the only candle store of its kind anywhere in Colorado, with Missouri being the closest state with a similar concept. Denver area residents and out-of-town visitors alike have taken notice of this downtown Golden gem.
“We loved the experience of making [candles] in the gorgeous shop,” said visitor Valerie Koenig. “I plan to take my Girl Scout troop to make candles - they will love it. Date night, Girls Night Out, team building... would be brilliant here.”
