Today we’d like to introduce you to Dani Washington.
Dani, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Amor Mas was initially started as my personal travel blog while I lived in Spain. During the course of my time there, family tragedy struck which forced me to return stateside. Once I returned, I longed for the warmth of the Spanish sun and found myself wanting to have a little piece of the countries I had the opportunity to visit in my home. Amor Mas Luxury Scents was then born and I worked diligently to recreate the destinations.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I don’t think being a business owner is ever a “smooth ride,” it’s a rewarding ride but hardly ever smooth, there’s always something to account for and to be perfecting. Some of my biggest struggles revolved around allowing my ideas to live outside of my head. I’ll often have a new scent idea and perfect it but have trouble with validating myself and allowing for that idea to flourish. On the operational side, scaling the business has presented its own share of struggles as we grow our business and maintain the quality and integrity of our ingredients.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Amor Mas Luxury Scents – what should we know?
Amor Mas Luxury Scents is a small-batch, luxury home fragrance brand. We specialize in crafting scents that encompass various destinations. Currently, we offer candles and reed diffusers, both feature natural ingredients and phthalate-free fragrances that will scent your home without compromising your health. We are known for our ability to recreate a destination and encapsulate it in a container. That is what we pride ourselves on – the ability to recreate a destination. The quality of our materials is what sets us apart from others, we don’t make our use of natural ingredients a “selling point” because we believe that your home fragrances should not compromise your health with nefarious ingredients. Our candles are made with a proprietary coconut-apricot blend wax and high-quality natural fragrances our aromatic reed diffusers use a plant-based diffuser base.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I have had so much support that has played a large role in the success of my business. La Tetra Metts-Owens and Jaiye Kesai have been advocates and the sounding board for the development of Amor Mas. In addition, Tammy Freeman of Soul and Story has been a cheerleader, supporter, and advocate of the brand since its inception.
