Infused with memories: Scents of Adventure’s candles illuminate travel experiences
Scents of Adventure is an LGBTQ-owned candle company located in Provincetown, MA. Below, the owners share some details on their business and the importance of supporting local.
Describe your business:
At Scents of Adventure, we handcraft candles in our home in Boston and Provincetown. We use 100% soy wax that is custom infused with specialty oils to create just the right flavored adventure. Our hand-blending creates unique smells that delight your senses. All of our oils are free from carcinogens and other harmful additives, and our wicks are made from 100% cotton and are lead-free. Each scent is hand-poured in small batches and then cured before shipment. We handle labeling and packaging ourselves and make sure that every candle is sent with love.
What makes your business unique?
We are two dudes living in Boston who love to travel and have seen a lot of the world. We dabbled in the candle-making process in the summer of 2019, but when COVID-19 hit and disrupted everything, we found that we needed something to distract us. Thus, Scents of Adventure was born based on our travels and all the memories we’ve made. We have tried to infuse just the right scent to match each adventure and hope that the experience evokes something in you!
Why is it important to support businesses like yours?
It is essential to support our business because we believe in giving back whenever we can. We have partnered with many organizations and foundations and give 20% back to fight Alzheimer’s, cancer, and sarcoidosis, to name a few.
How has your business changed or adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Our business started as a response to COVID-19. We created the idea and concepts in March of 2020, and on July 15, 2020, Scents of Adventure received its first online order! Our first store opened in Provincetown, MA on April 1, 2021! We offer pick-up and delivery to certain areas, along with free shipping for customers that order three or more candles online. We hope you’ll come visit us soon, in-person or online!
