Get 10% Off on A Scent of Scandal Candles!
A Scent of Scandal is run by Jewish siblings Ari Solomon and Heather Brancaccio. Two of the candles in the company's seasonal collection have Jewish themes: Challahback Girl (challah bread) and Hanukkah Bush (fir). "We sell a TON of the Hanukkah-themed candles!" says Ari. "It was very important for us that we represented for our fellow Jews out there."
A Scent of Scandal's candles are better for you (soy wax is easy to clean up), animals (the candles are cruelty-free and contain no tallow, beeswax, or other animal ingredients), and the environment. Ari says that beeswax is common in eco-friendly candles and that many paraffin candles without animal byproducts are petroleum-based. A Scent of Scandal's Web site notes that burning soy-wax candles produces no carbon dioxide and 90 percent less soot than typical petroleum-based paraffin candles.
Ari is vegan (click here to read why), and the company is a true friend of animals. A Scent of Scandal is part of the PETA Business Friends program and sells candles that benefit two charities. Fifteen percent of proceeds from the Rock the Boat (ocean) and A Roll in the Hay (grass) candles go to Sea Shepherd and Farm Sanctuary, respectively. And Ari was quick to point out:
