I am the founder of Blossom by Melissa, a start-up handmade candle and home fragrance business.
My journey to a passion for fragrance came from working for luxury brands in retail. Following an injury in 2017, I had to leave behind a much-loved career with Chanel. I had to reinvent myself and longed to find a way back to what I really loved.
I came across an online candle course. This led me to a world of everything that is candles and fragrances and as a result BlossombyMelissa was created.
Blossoms were the ideal theme for me. Blossoms represent – a time of renewal and new beginnings.
I approached my local Kildare Enterprise office. I attended a 6-week course on, start your own business which was provided by Talentpool whom I highly recommend. I did not know where to begin to start up my own business. I am still receiving ongoing support from the Kildare Enterprise office. I have attended several online training courses on different topics to support my business.
I am very grateful for all the support I have received.
