Lately, we've been reflecting on this journey and the lessons learned this year.
Scents tell a story; we curate scents based on our personal memories and experiences. For example, we love family movie nights so our Movie Nights candle was born. We take a yearly beach trip so our Beach House candle was born. All the scents we curate are based on our collective memories to spread love and joy into your homes.
Scents can change the energy of a space, bring up forgotten memories and make you feel like you're taking care of yourself. There is a comfort that comes from surrounding yourself with meaningful items.
This company was born out of a son's love for his mother. With everyone's doubts, no formal business training but hustle and grit, we opened almost 3 years ago. We are now a team of almost 10 between production and sales.
It's been a whirlwind of a year: we outgrew the basement and moved into a production space, hired employees that became family, made history and opened our first retail location and continued to vend at markets every weekend.
But we didn't do this alone.
YOU made this possible.
We know that you have a choice in which candle brand you buy from, but you choose us. You came to us for subtle, non-irritating scents, for hand-poured candles with real people behind each step of the process, bringing joy and intentionality to everyday life.
Thank you SO MUCH for making this possible.
You allow us contribute to our community in meaningful ways.
In the next year, we will have some new scents coming out as well as bringing back some of your favorites, we can't wait to share!
We hope you have a holiday season that is filled with amazing food, good scents and the people you love.
With all the love and gratitude,
Alejandro, Valentina, Patricia + team at Smell of Love Candles
