Not to toot our own horn or anything, but we often hear "It smells amazing in here," when a customer enters our shop. This is not an accident -- we think of scent as an under-appreciated design element.
If you think about it--smell is the first sense to fire up when you walk into a space. There's an emotional element tied to it that creates a memory, tied to an experience--it's a delight to your senses. We've curated a collection of apothecary goods fit for both the novice and the well-rounded scent snob, and everyone in between. Apothecary goods should feel good on your skin, delight your senses, have real ingredients, and look beautiful on the surfaces of your home...shout out to the Void Neue Incense Burner that acts as a sculptural piece when not in use.
We knew we wanted to bring in a perfume line, but it needed to be something we believed in. Enter Abel. Following a failed search for a natural perfume that was chic, modern and long lasting. Abel was founded in Amsterdam by New Zealander Frances Shoemack with a simple goal - to create the world’s best natural perfume. Rather than clouding your personality with a consistent intensity, the beauty of all natural ingredients is that they’ll evolve on your skin, working with your natural body chemistry to create a unique scent. One that will continually evolve throughout the day. Abel lives on your skin, until it fades away.
