The Beginning of a New Adventure

My name is Gissett, (GiGi) the owner of A Scented Adventure, LLC.  I am a lover of all fragrance related products, be it perfume, candles, body and room sprays, etc.  YOU NAME IT!  My house is a challenge to scent with extremely high vaulted ceilings throughout at least half, if not more of it.  Luckily, for me, my family loves the smell goods too!

In 2020, being an overall fragrance fanatic, finding myself with more time on my hands with less travel due to Covid-19, I took on a hobby related to one of the things I am passionate about which is home fragrance!  My goal was to make the best throwing and longest lasting candles and wax melts that I could make.

I spent hundreds of hours on DIY forums, FB groups and watching YouTube video tutorials to learn how to make candles.  During this time, I was introduced to a brand that sold refill tubs of their wax with choice of different wicks to use depending on the vessels.  Although, I wasn't making the wax, I learned how to determine appropriate wick sizes for different vessels. I learned how to test candles, their performance and how to make slight adjustments. After becoming a bit comfortable and enjoying it, I decided it was time to put a bit of what I learned through various channels to use.  I spent quite a bit of time and money trying various waxes, using various combinations and/or ratios which were discussed by many in the DIY groups of which I was a member. As for fragrances, I wanted to try everything that seemed appealing which was A LOT!

I finally found the blend of waxes and fragrance load for both candles and melts that worked well to scent my home.  The higher fragrance load negated the need to change out the wax in a dozen or so warmers after only 4-6 hours which was typical for me due to my open floor plan and high ceilings. Adding more fragrance oils to a great wax blend is like filling up the gas tank vs. filling half way.  You will get farther on the full tank even in the worst driving conditions. Makes sense. Right? In wax melts, because their is no open flame you can add more oils than the maximum amounts suggested for candles.  There is a fine line though as to just how much oil your wax can hold.  Testing and pushing those limited was fun. exciting and sometimes even a bit frustrating.

After creating multiple batches with different wax blends, fragrance load percentages, etc., I decided that I would share with some wax loving family and friends.  They were as excited as I was with what I was able to create. A FaceBook group was created where I could share my adventures in wax making.  This quickly became the group in which ultimately A Scented Adventure was born.  This all began with the love and support of family and friends. One friend who is a fragrance lover herself consistently motivated me to move towards selling my goods. She is familiar with products from some of the big brand names and smaller vendors like myself. She truly helped to build up my confidence to do something with what I learned and was so passionate about. Let's face it! Your family will typically always support you but I was honored to have her vote of confidence in my "creations".

Over time, what I thought was a good means to recuperate some money I had already spent resulted in me just buying more wax and fragrance oils. This little adventure eventually became so much more. Our small business started growing with the support of members of our FaceBook group who buy my products, primarily the wax melts I hand pour in small batches! This group has become a wonderful online community of individuals that share the same passion for home fragrance. Our members have helped me grow immensely not only buying my products but also sharing the group with their wax loving family and friends.  Most importantly, the group is truly an online community where we don't only discuss wax!  The camaraderie exhibited is amazing! I owe, finding myself on one of the biggest, if not the biggest e-commerce platform to those that believed in me and supported me along the way.  As a small business owner with unexpected growth, you find yourself with opportunities to make things better. I could never do this without the support of my beautiful family, our group's administrative team and the members of our group.  

What was once a "one woman show" grew exponentially and now, WE ARE A FAMILY OPERATED BUSINESS with my daughter, Brianna being my right hand and my better half and sons assisting when needed!  We love what we do and hope to take you on "A Scented Adventure "one scent at a time!
