What is my story?
My name is Irene Colón but some know me as Foxy Gemme. I was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in Virginia Beach, VA. I am a mother of two and love exploring different cultures, fragrances and fashion. My ethnic background is Spanish (my parents were born and raised in Dominican Republic) and I can literally eat rice and beans all day!
So it all started in 2018. Working a 9-5 job was tiring and stressful. Along with being an empath and a carefree person, the corporate world just wasn't for me. I wanted more for myself and my kids. I just knew I was meant to become an entrepreneur. With the support of my family and the faith within myself, I finally quit my job and knew that bigger things were coming. With no guaranteed income coming in, I still believed that something greater was in the works for me.
One particular day, I was burning a candle and had a curiosity to research on what ingredients were in this candle. What I discovered was that these ingredients were not healthy to the environment or our health. After many hours of reading about candle making, I decided that I would build my own business making candles that were healthier to burn and also appealing to the eye.
I spent days coming up with names for my business but with no success. One night in a dream, the name came to me. Abeille Bliss was perfect and my business was officially born!
Abeille is the French word for bee. I am all about peace (my full name literally means "peace" and "dove") so when you read the name in English, it states "bee bliss." I want to always remind you to bring peace to yourself and to others and to always put love first.
