Mia Bella Candles (Scent-Sations, Inc.) was introduced to the network marketing industry in the year 2002. The company's success is owed largely to the hard work and dedication of network marketers; Bob Scocozzo and Charles Umphred along with candle-makers turned entrepreneurs; Carmen Milazzo and Lynn Milazzo.
The Milazzos had been making candles for over a decade before they crossed paths with Scocozzo and Umphred, who had been in the network marketing industry since 1988, successfully earning large commissions from various network marketing companies. Bob Scocozzo commissioned the Milazzos while organizing a fundraiser for his son's sports team. The fundraiser turned out to be a huge success and upon hearing that the Milazzos' used soy wax and vegetables as raw materials for their candles, Scocozzo knew that these candles were going to be the next big thing. Scocozzo, Umphred and the Milazzos then decided to form the company, Mia Bella candles, named after Bob Scocozzo's daughter.
From its humble beginnings nine years ago, ScentSations, Inc. has become one of the most successful direct sales candle companies, offering a wide-range of opportunities for fellow network marketers and budding entrepreneurs.
The high regard for quality and design that Scent-Sations put into their products combined with the network marketing efforts of the company's distributors quickly made their products a household name. With thousands of distributors around the world marketing Mia Bella Candles, it comes as no surprise that the company is quickly catching up with some of their larger counterparts in the direct selling industry.
ScentSations offers something new and innovative to the candle making industry, as they use renewable materials for their candles. A lot of candles in the market are made out of a combination of plastic and paraffin, which does not only burn faster but can also harm the environment. Mia Bella Candles use soy wax for their candles and as a result, these candles do not only smell better but they also burn at a slower rate than traditional paraffin candles. Since soy wax has a relatively lower melting point compared to paraffin, it is ideal to use with candle containers and holders.
While Mia Bella Candles are more popularly known for their candle products, they also offer a wide-range of fragrance oils and scents to consumers. Mia Melts and Mia plug-in scents are a popular option among many homeowners, especially those who don't want to or are restricted from lighting a candle in their homes or offices.
