Back in 2000, Maryann Mihalopoulos, a seasoned attorney turned part-time entrepreneur, converted her passion for ambrosial fragrances into a sweet side business she called Xela Aroma. The brand peddles a dreamy lineup of candles and diffusers, each made and manufactured with essential oils, right here in Dallas. This week, one lucky winner will be able to take home the Classic White Linen Candle.
