From candle obsessed, to scent designer.
I simply had to smell them all.
I had my favorites, but loved the possibility of finding my new can't-live-without candle on the next sniff.
Eventually, my candle obsession backfired. I craved something different but couldn't find it. I HAD smelled them all!
I took matters into my own hands and started creating scent blends.
Suddenly, there were no rules. Clean scents didn’t have to smell like fresh laundry, salt could be romantic, and whiskey could be cozy. Along with the unexpected came the unique fragrances I was craving.
Fragrances that helped me unwind after a stressful day, or keep me company at 6 am, as I try to convince myself that I'm a morning person. Fragrances that could make an ordinary day more self-indulgent.
This obsession with scent is not just mine, it’s ours.
What started as a personal treat suddenly became a business—CarteHaus.
Now, as a fragrant-forward lifestyle brand, we seek to inspire you to embrace the selfish moments in your daily life. Our products are meant to be used and enjoyed, not saved for a special occasion—you deserve the nice candle.
