My name is Danielle and I am happy to introduce backhouse fragrances and myself to you. I was raised by a mother who loved to create. She made pottery in the kiln in our backyard and dabbled in crafts, including the art of candle making. Inspired by my childhood and first mentor in the arts, I started creating scented candles for our home.
After 20 years spent in the real estate appraisal business, I have seen the inside of many homes. It’s an intimate experience to walk through someone’s home...the pictures on the wall, memories created and shared, design styles that come and go, and the intangibles that make a really special home just that…special. It’s a balance between the people that live there and the meaningful items that are collected and displayed that lend presence and charm to a special home.
I have always had a passion for home décor; I love creating, and knew I wanted to produce something unique that could lend itself to the appeal and personality of someone’s home. In 2017, my husband Taylor and I began to create our brand that would become backhouse. Together in our brainstorming sessions, we shared what makes a home special and how the best of life and some of our most important memories happen inside those four walls.
The sense of smell is intrinsically tied to moods, thoughts and memories. We created our initial collection of fragrances inspired by some of our best memories and important periods in our lives. We wanted our backhouse candles to look timeless in a home (while making it smell great) and leave a lasting impression on those that pass through the door.
We hope you enjoy our backhouse fragrances and we are thrilled to share them with you!
