Three years ago, my husband and I purchased an original painting which became the centerpiece of our new home. One day while admiring it, I started to wonder—how would this beautiful piece of art smell from the artists’ perspective? At that moment, Artistscent was born.

I spent my corporate career as an expert in the fragrance business—20 years developing and selecting fragrances for a global beauty company and 20 years managing a terrific creative team for a well-known fragrance supplier. During this time, I was involved with the launch of hundreds of successful scented products in many forms, from fine colognes to luxury scented candles and everything in between. I collaborated with some of the most talented Perfumers and Evaluators in the business.

Traditionally, scents for consumer products are developed from a marketing and fragrance expert perspective, which considers the concept, colors and design. That day while admiring the painting you see above (by artist Ursula Brenner), I thought how interesting it would be instead to collaborate directly with artists. To capture the vision of their painting in scent. To elevate their work into a new dimension.

At Artistscent, we work with our incredible artists to design custom scents which express their fragrance vision for each piece of art. Our candles are beautifully scented, and hand poured into clear vessels with their paintings forever screened on the glass. The results are visual and olfactive fusions so harmonious that once you experience them together, you won’t be able to imagine them apart! 

Bringing Artistscent to life was a labor of love, not only for our (family) team, but for our valued vendor partners who believed in our concept and worked hard with us to make it a reality. We are grateful for their expertise and partnership. Everything in our line is proudly made in the USA.

From our home to yours, we hope you enjoy our products.
