Did you catch our special report on Scentsy last night? This Idaho company that makes wickless candles is experiencing amazing success, in a down economy. In the last eight years, the owners of the company - Orville and Heidi Thompson - have taken this company from a small business to a home fragrance empire! They started the business in a shipping container, and now Scentsy is based on a beautiful 60 acre campus in Meridian, Idaho. Last year, the company made well over 500 million dollars. Scentsy is on track to be a billion dollar a year company in the next few years! 

I had the chance to visit with the Thompsons, and get an inside look at how things work at Scentsy. I also asked about the future of the company, what's ahead, and the big question - will Scentsy stay here in Idaho?
