OUR STORY

I launched The Unscented Company in 2016, a complete line of unscented home and body care on two founding principles. Firstly, we redefine the notion of clean by offering exclusively unscented all natural products. We believe powerful cleaning can be free of fragrances and we could all be better for it. Secondly, we design our packaging for conscious living by allowing our customers the ability to refill their bottles either at home or in-store. A significant reduction of our collective plastic footprint.

Our commitment goes beyond products and packaging. We are a Certified B Corporation a growing community of more than 2000 companies working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business. We aspire to meet the highest standards of verified performance, transparency, and accountability, taking into account workers, our local community and the environment.


Start fresh.

My architecture background and my in-depth knowledge in sustainability and waste management have always allowed me to see the big picture in business.

What are two things that excite you in life?

It’s all about Real Madrid Football Club, where it goes beyond the game plan: the royalty of the crown, the winning mentality, and the ‘‘never surrender’’ attitude. I was born to be a Madridista, HALA MADRID !

Caroline Chouinard

Sales Director + Distribution

What do you like the most about your job?

Looking forward to go to work every day alongside a dynamic, genuine and motivated team. Knowing that we all contribute, with our clients and associates, to a global movement consisting of changing our consumption habits. Being part of a company based in Montréal that strives to work locally and make a Quebec company shine way beyond our borders!

What are two things that excite you in life?

1. Mountains!!! I love hiking, downhill skiing and skimo (that’s actually my new passion). I really enjoy climbing mountains and admiring the view from the top, no matter the season. Smells, colors, vegetation… everything is always so beautiful! I share this passion with my whole family, including Ella (my dog)!

2. All types of dance: contemporary, classical, hip-hop, jazz, tango, folk, everything!! I love Danse Danse, because it always makes me get out of my comfort zone and discover new choreographers from here and abroad. I am always deeply moved when I see dancers pushing back their limits, sharing their emotions with us, telling us a story or delivering a message of some sort.

Patch

R&D, Pet Care

What do you like the best about your everyday life?

I just LOVE pasta! Mostly the kind with bolognese sauce, made by my dad, Steven. At night, I love cuddling up to my mom Anie’s feet when we watch movies or documentaries. Waking my older brother, Henri-William, up every morning is also one of my favourite things ever! I make sure to jump on his bed and give him loads of kisses.

One of my favourite things ever is my rubber KONG frisbee! I can catch it mid-air and close to 200 feet away! Trust me, I have pictures to prove it! I also have my plush toys, squeaky squirrel, squid and scooby doo, that I love to carry around and play with.

Finally, my daily long walks with my best friend Wanda, are also one of my favourite hobbies! 

What are two things that excite you in life?

Every morning before work, I just can’t wait to go on my daily run with dad, which starts my day on the right foot (paw). 

Like my TUC family, I am also a huge fan of nature. Going out in the woods for long walks, especially in the eastern townships, brings me lots of joy! Sometimes, I even have the chance to run around with my deer friends!
