About Us

Dolores at the FarmersMarketMy goal with these products is simple. Using them will make you feel better and smell great! Your home, too.

I started making soaps and candles as a result of joining a farmers market in 2004, starting out selling herb plants. Looking around for other things to sell so I could stay at market year round, I discovered soap and candle making and a new career was born. With a background in retail, selling ladies fragrances and cosmetics at a large department store for 15 years, I was interested in creating product that both smelled wonderful and were good for body and home, by using simple natural ingredients such as olive oil, essential herbal oils, goat’s milk, etc.

All of Scented Pleasures Gifts products are handcrafted in small batches in my kitchen.  

My hope is that you find my soaps and candles a pleasure to use, an affordable luxury to make your life a bit more enjoyable.


Scented Pleasures Gifts mission is simple: to provide great handcrafted bath and body products at a reasonable price along with great customer service. This online store is designed to provide you with a safe and secure environment to browse the product catalog.


Thank you!
