Posted by scentandviolet on February 8, 2022

Roses are fragrant and beautiful, which makes them a traditional Valentine's Day gift. What is it, though, that makes them the ideal expression of our feelings for that special someone?

Health and Safety Standards at Scent & Violet

Posted by scentandviolet on March 6, 2021

With removal of state-mandated restrictions regarding COVID-19 in Texas, we would like to take this opportunity to share our own health and safety standards at Scent & Violet:

  •  All employees, vendors and customers older than age 2 (two) must wear masks that align with CDC Guidelines during visit to our store.
  • Additionally, masks must fully cover the nose and mouth, at all times.
  • We are continuing to limit number of people permitted in store at a time to ensure social distancing is exercised for the safety of our customers, our vendors, our employees and their families and, our community at large.
  • We are continuing to utilize contactless delivery.
  • To curb the spread of Covid-19, we are still not delivering to any of the local hospitals.

While we are optimistic that widespread vaccinations will eventually bring this pandemic to an end, that time has not come, yet. Until then, we are taking individual responsibility in our own personal safety as well as health and safety of others.

We are grateful for your continued support, while doing so.
