A look behind the scenes:
Specializing in signature fragrance body oil blends, signature hand-dipped incense, and gourmet, made-to-order bath & body products. I focus on creating products that are healthy for the skin, that will condition the skin, and of course products that smell good.

Itiel McVay is the chief operating officer and mixologist of Smell Goods ‘98™. In 1998, after hearing her husband’s idea of becoming purveyors of oils and incense, Itiel moved forward with the idea and has made the creative side of the product line what it is today. Over the years Itiel has honed her bath and body knowledge and creative skills. Itiel stays abreast on the latest cosmetic trends, body care treatments, and the pros and cons of cosmetic ingredients.

From l. to r.: 4 in 1 - Almond Whipped Cream Scrub, Rub Down multi use oil and Chai Soap (vegan friendly!)

Itiel is also an active member of online crafting communities and online indie business communities. Since childhood, Itiel’s life has centered around a healthy way of living. Mixing up goodness for beautiful conditioned skin and educating others about the Smell Goods ’98’s™ line, comes naturally to Itiel. Itiel’s creative inspiration comes from gourmet desserts and gourmet beverages.

Itiel is a home-school mother and resides in Charlotte, with her husband and their two children.

Thanks Itiel! I've "seen" many of you around on the 'net, on forums, groups and whatnot. And everyones products are wonderful and in such varied styles. Its been fun learning more about the people behind the business names. Hopefully this will generate a buzz and interest about artists of color within the indie movement.
