About Us

ScentSational DeLites has been offering 100% hand-crafted, highly-scented candles and other fine home scenting and bath/body products since 2004.

ScentSational DeLites candles began as a quest for creating a superior quality candle that would burn evenly, fill your home with aroma, would not leave wax hang-up on jars, and not soot excessively like many of the popular mass produced candles on the market today. I became increasingly dissatisfied with the quality of candles on the market (wicks not centered, half of the candle burned or tunneled down the center leaving excess wax in the jar, not enough scent throw when the candle was burning, etc), not to mention the price of what I was paying for what I was getting. As a disappointed consumer, I began my journey eighteen years ago working with various waxes, wicks and fragrances, testing and retesting until I was comfortable enough to give my product to family and friends as gifts. It was their excitement and encouragement about my candles that prompted me to begin selling them locally at craft shows and now in boutiques and local gift shops.

Each ScentSational DeLites candle is genuinely hand poured. None of our candles are mass-produced like department store candles that could be sitting on the shelves for months. Almost all candles are made fresh to order. Therefore, no two candles look exactly alike. All of our candles are lead-free and extensive testing is performed to find the right wax, wick and color combination for superior performance, which you should expect from a burning candle.

We have over 300 fragrances to choose from with new scents coming in regularly, if you have a favorite scent you don't see listed on our website contact us to see if we have it available. Our small American company has the big candle factory feel with the ability of creating thousands of candle styles, scents and colors variations, yet still maintaining our personal touch with our customers by making one candle at a time. Because our candles are custom designed, you have the ability to select a color and fragrance combination for your special occasions.

I take great pride in my company, my commitment to customer service and in the hand made products I make and sell. Our online store is designed to provide you with a safe and secure environment to browse our product catalog for your personal purchases.

ScentSational DeLites was a member of the International Guild of Candle Artisans (IGCA) and have attended various conventions and workshops and taught some specialty candle making techniques to other members of the IGCA. The owner, Ann (Ridley) Barton is also the Past President of the IGCA.
