About Us

Life's little moments perfectly scented with class and sass!


Our Story

We are a small company dedicated to creating hand-crafted natural bath, body, and candle products that have a little bit of attitude. We pride ourselves on using the highest quality botanicals and plant-derived oils and waxes. All of our products are vegan and cruelty-free, and we support animal rescue. We believe in offering transparent labeling with ingredients gifted from nature. Sassy and classy, we create snarky joy from life's little moments.

It all started with a smell that really reminded us of our wedding cake. We had an epiphany - through our olfactory sense we could embody the favorite moments of our lives! So, in August 2015, we created our company, respectfully cherishing all of life's little moments, with a special dedication to all of nature's creatures, and a little bit of love to sassy attitude. Life's Moments - Perfectly Scented.
