I started my company Laguna Candles for two reasons. My love for candles and scents and the desire for a clean burning scented candle and a another important reason was I wanted my three daughters to have a choice to choose between working for someone or for themselves. For many years I also sold Luxury Real Estate In the Coastal communities of OC. I previewed some of the most beautiful homes in the US. What surprised me the most, was how much people invested in the interior of their home, and yet what I found was as beautiful as these homes were, so often the homes were void of scent.
Typically when I walk into any home the first thing I notice is the smell. Scent has always been a large part of who I am. From my days as a little girl mesmerized by the scent of Chanel No. 5 that my Grandmother (Lola) loved, to walking in one of my favorite luxury Hotels and smelling beautiful scents all through out.
Many years ago my husband Clarence's tennis buddy Herman told him one day, what he loved about our home was that it always smelled wonderful. That was one of the nicest complements that I have heard to this day. I recently read an article that I would like to share from Hotels Mag's newsletter. It was written by Sherri Sheck-Merril, and she was gracious enough to allow me to share with my readers. Please enjoy. http://tinyurl.com/8awk55t.
