The story of this travel inspired home fragrance business began in early 2015. Sparked from a vision of wanderlust and reminiscence of past travels. The serendipitous encounters, the fleeting moments, the lingering memories; all of these experiences that are often tied to a place, a moment, and to scent. Jipsē Co was born.

WHY HOME FRAGRANCE?
What started as a creative way to create a memento, became a form of story telling and self-care. The link between sense of smell and memory was such a strong one that all I had to do was close my eyes to be transported to another time and place. And I found myself doing that…often.
For instance, I could envision myself a summer night in Mykonos by the water and smell the ozonic air of the ocean. I could remember the smell of the warm breeze that seemed to have carried a subtle sweetness that for me translated to amber and also cloves. And that became one scent story.
After making several other scent stories and tester candles for family, I realized I was working on collections of stories. It was a combination of my love of home decor, my appreciation for nostalgia and most importantly experiencing that moment of self-care that really made me want to share that.
I’m very much a supporter of self-care wherever you can get it and sometimes the act of lighting a candle is enough to set the tone. I felt like at that point I had something that was specific to me and what I could offer in a home fragrance.
