About Us

Destination Fragrances began with a simple idea: To create fragrances for travelers and dreamers.

Several years ago, I began to work with and appreciate essential oils- this lead to the start of our destination fragrance business. My inspiration for our fragrances comes from the wonderful San Francisco neighborhoods and locations that are frequented by locals and sought out by travelers from all over the world. Each candle fragrance is blended to evoke the ambiance of a place.   

Our family is fortunate to live in such an inspiring part of the world and to work with wonderful natural materials to make our products. All of our candles are hand made with soy wax and cotton wicks and are poured in small batches in our California studio.

Customers often ask us why our candles smell so good. We explain that our candle fragrances contain only pure essential oils. For centuries, essential oils, which are derived from plants and flowers, have been recognized for their beautiful fragrances and their healing power. They often create profound effects when inhaled, reducing stress and inducing in us a sense of balance and pleasure. 

Our goal at Destination Fragrances is to offer luxury fragrance products that will add beauty and enjoyment to your life or the life of someone you care about. 

We are excited about having you experience our Scents of San Francisco candles!
