Meet Pilar Ruiz and Tommy Tnez of Scented Vibes in Long Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Pilar Ruiz and Tommy Tnez.

The idea originated back East where Tommy was born and raised. He grew up wearing scented oils. After he moved to California he couldn’t find scented oils he was he was used to wearing. His family or friends would send him fragrances he was looking for. After Tommy met Pilar he would ask her what her favorite fragrances were and he had them sent for her. She loved the scented oils as well. Especially how inexpensive it was for her to have all her favorite fragrances in all-natural oil that lasted longer. She was always receiving compliments. Friends and family were requesting to get an order of their favorite fragrances too. In May 2016 Tommy and Pilar went back East to visit family where Tommy also proposed… Their friends in California placed their orders of oils they wanted them to bring back, as they visited the place where Tommy would always get his oils from he was telling them how successful they could be if they were in California. Since Tommy had always thought a store in California would be successful and well received, the idea sparked for them to open up their own Scented and Essential oils store. And that’s were Scented Vibes came to fruition.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It’s been pretty smooth road and it has been well received. Our only obstacle has been processing all of our licensing and corporation paperwork ourselves. Our client base has been growing and we have our returned customers. That is the reason we decided to build a Brick and Mortar.

    Hi Tommy & Pilar –
    Both Wil and I are thoroughly enjoying our oil selections. Wil applied the Invictus oil yesterday and drove my car. Why was he constantly on my mind while I was driving to Temecula today? The scent of the oil is in my seat belt (he took my car to the car wash yesterday)…more in love with this man than ever.

    Thanks and we will definitely visit you two soon.
