On August 13, 2013, our inspiration and namesake, Mrs. Thelma A. Meyer turned 81 years young.

Thelma was born in the great state of Kansas. This fertile farming region is sometimes called the Garden of the West because of its beautiful rolling prairies. Sunflowers, the official state flower, grow wild with the help of rich soil and strong sunshine–speckling the plains with optimism.

When we were considering scents for our next collection, Sunflower blossomed to the top of the list. Like Thelma, they are bold, bright and always optimistic.
