My name is Gienine, and I am the owner of Parish Scents Co., a New Orleans candle company. I was born and raised in New Orleans, LA and my family has deep roots in the city dating back 150+ years.
I have always enjoyed candles and have probably purchased hundreds of them over the years. And as I have gone through various stages of candle preferences, I have gravitated towards wanting to burn candles that have meaning - candles that remind me of the people, places, and things that I care about. Candles that make me smile.
That's when Parish Scents was created, and I have spent hundreds of days carefully testing and crafting my line of New Orleans scented candles to recreate the scents of New Orleans - the place where I was born, raised, and am deeply connected with in every possible way.
For all those who have created fond memories in this distinctly unique city, for those who call it home, or for anybody who simply enjoys the spirit of New Orleans, these candles were designed specifically for me and you.
