Shining Sol was, oddly enough, founded by award winning producer/musician/author Pete Evick. As a veteran touring musician of over 25 years, Pete has seen and traveled the world. During those travels, Pete has found that “scents” are one of those things that makes all of the various places he has ventured to uniquely unique. As the years went by, he often found himself using “scents” as a way of describing (and reminiscing about) his favorite places and travels. While Pete hails from the Washington, D.C. area, it has never been a secret that his heart’s home is by the ocean. While this isn’t a unique concept (coastal inspired candles), what sets Shining Sol’s Coastal Collection apart from everyone else, is that ours are inspired by the real personal journeys of our founder Pete Evick.
