Asheville NC- based R.R. Lumin Candlemakers announced Monday, July 15th that its new line of luxury essential oil fragrance blends, An Exquisite Sensory Experience by RR Lumin, will be launched at the ASD trade show in Las Vegas on August 4, 2013, after being picked up by a major international distributor based in N.Y. this past weekend at the International Gift and Home Furnishings Trade Show in Atlanta.
After a banner year which saw the small mountain company grow from working the festival and tailgate market circuit to wholesaling supplying restaurants, spas and retail stores with fine hand-poured candles and luminaries, R.R. Lumin is expanding into the fragrance and essential oil market.
“The feedback has been extremely positive for the oils so it was a logical decision. It's very exciting,” says co-owner Walt Dziedzic, “there's a lot of interest already.”
One client in Atlanta has said, “Not since my visit to Nice, France have I experienced such rich olfactory satisfaction, the blends are immaculately concocted.”
“All of our oils are organic and cold processed without the aid of hexane or CO2, they’re available to us in their purest state. Now we get to share the experience of them with the rest of the world.”, adds co-owner, master candlemaker and “creatrix” Robin Vabolis.
The line will include such fragrances as, local favorites Fruition and Sadhana, as well as newly-tested blends like, Nephthys and Summoner. There are 24 unique fragrances in the line.
