Ten years ago, we founded ScentsAbility based on a mutual love of a daughter Jessica, a beautiful young lady with intellectual disabilities (IDD). While trying to create a business where Jessica would find meaningful employment, her parents discovered her love of natural scented products and realized they were also her path to independence. Since then, Scentsability has created a brand of scented artisan products for home and body. Today, we have a team of young adults, all with intellectual and developmental disabilities, working hard in hand with some of the largest companies in the fragrance industry. Together, we have created a brand that is dedicated to combining beautifully crafted scented products with finding purpose for young adults with IDD.
ScentsAbility strives to create incredible scented products. Our flagship products are our artisan crafted candles made with the finest fragrances, a proprietary soy wax blend and 100% cotton wicks that are non-GMO, non-toxic and eco-friendly. In 2017 ScentsAbility was honored at the annual National Candle Association (NCA) Expo; where we made incredible partnerships with some of the largest fragrance houses, wax manufacturers and other raw material suppliers in the industry. These companies believe in ScentsAbility's mission and want to be part of our journey. As a member of NCA, ScentsAbility has access to the leaders in the industry who have dedicated their expertise and resources to be part of the ScentsAbility experience.
Our sophisticated scents, created exclusively for ScentsAbility by some of the world’s finest perfumers give life to our candles. We carefully select formulas and procedures so that each special young adult can participate in the candle-making process. Our wax and scent are mixed with love, hand poured and packaged with the utmost care to create unique, beautiful, products that incorporate the latest trends
ScentsAbility is always creating new scented products to build our brand, increase our product line and create additional employment opportunities for young adults with IDD. ScentsAbility’s journey continues to expand our line of artisan-crafted products; always focused on our vision to create employment and housing for young adults with IDD.
Our dedication to creating outstanding products is only surpassed by our love and commitment to providing job training, employment and supported housing to young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
ScentsAbility trainees become a part of our retail and manufacturing operations. They each play a role in the development, creation, and sale of our hand-made, scented products. Our products are only one part of the dream. Our vision is to create a loving, supportive, inclusive community where our young adults can WORK, LIVE, and PLAY. The development of this community is critical to our mission and our fundraising efforts will be concentrated on this project.
When you purchase from ScentsAbility, you receive much more than a beautiful product. ScentsAbility started as an act of love, but it has turned into something much more. Our gift to you is to provide you with an amazing scented product your gift is helping light the path to independence for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
