Our San Jose Candle Company

Scented Designs is a California small business devoted to the ideals of creativity, craftsmanship, and small business.

I grew up in San Jose attending art and craft shows with my mom. We would spend hours shopping for gifts and admiring people's endless creativity. I fell in love with the unique nature of handmade - no two things are ever exactly the same and therein lies the beauty.

I started Scented Designs in 2016. It was a huge leap of faith for me to try my hand at running a scented candle business, and I am so grateful for all of the support I've received so that SD could grow to what it is today!

As a small business candle shop, we believe that one of our scented candles is more than just a candle: It's a commitment to small business, the people behind them, and the positive impact shopping small + locally can have on the environment.

SD is proud to bring you high-quality, highly-scented candles made in California. We'd be honored for you to bring our scented candles into your home and gift to the most special people in your lives. We're so glad you're here to take a look at our California soy candles and shop with us.

Love the variety of scents, sizes, and packaging. I purchased candles for some friends and they all smelled so good that I had to order some for myself! I love the variety of scents, sizes, and packaging available.”
