Today we’d like to introduce you to My McCarthy.
My, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started Gavin Luxe because I wanted to design a set of beautiful labels. I’m a brand designer by trade. I’ve always loved candles and fragrance and wanted to create something that not only looked great but smelled great as well.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
As with most people I can say that I’ve probably gotten in my own way at times. Whether through my own perfectionism (I’m a recovering perfectionist. lol) and also just my overall commitment level to the company. It can be a challenge running two businesses full time.
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Our philosophy is simple – to deliver a sensual, luxurious experience.
Close your eyes and just imagine being submerged in a multi-sensory experience. The flickering flame dancing atop a candle, accompanied by richly scented essential oils, gently filling the room with an irresistible aroma. And then it happens. You are enveloped in a pleasurable, indulgent experience that will ease emotional tension and arouse the senses. Gavin Luxe products tell a story. There is a little sensuality in everyone; love, connectivity, fascination, desire, mystery, passion; we all experience it. As we unwind and relax, these emotions are heightened and it’s what we become. Gavin Luxe products provoke the inevitable.
Based out of San Diego, California, Gavin Luxe is a contemporary interpretation of vintage craftsmanship. We are enthusiastic practitioners of aromatherapy and we understand the benefits that fragrance brings when blended in the right way. Driven by our deep passion for practicing and blending oils, Gavin Luxe was established to share the benefits of sensual aromatherapy through a range of finest fragrances oils and resources available. We continue to develop and expand, and our products are now sold at exclusive retail outlets worldwide.
What were you like growing up?
I would say that I am an introverted creator. Growing up I loved creating. From paper dolls to press on nails made from paper, I think I’ve done it all.
