So, it was a surprise when I became pregnant with my daughter Ellis and was living in Brooklyn (hence Ellis Brooklyn!), and when I started cleaning up my beauty routine, I found there were no sophisticated clean options for fragrance.
Set in the forests of Arcadia, this elegant orange blossom scent is roused by the first meeting of Androcles and the Lion. The gorgeous initial bloom plays with dewy violet, petitgrain and honeysuckle before being rounded by the warmth of crisp amber and cedarwood. The moral of the famous Aesop fable is kindness—Androcles removes a thorn from the lion’s paw—a notion as lovely as the fragrance.
The freedom of the mountains, the rush of alpine air, the bracing freshness of evergreens, and the richness of bourbon, praline and vanilla, APRÈS is a celebration of the wintry outdoors. APRÈS opens dewy like first snow and then evolves into a boozy-woodsy brew laced with spices and sweetness. Addictive, compelling and bold, APRÈS is a beautifully structured scent with both strong sillage and longevity.
A seductive scented body milk inspired by the D.H. Lawrence poem "Figs", the fragrance beckons with initial fresh green notes of Capri fig before blossoming into an alluring blend of jasmine, pepper and sandalwood—the kind of mysterious scent perfect for assuming a Pseudonym.
Ready for the smell of the salty sea, white tropical florals and creamy sandalwood? Our transportative SALT eau de parfum now comes in an ultra luxurious body oil formula. Loaded with squalane and boosted with soothing algae extract, this is scented bodycare at its finest.
An olfactive ode to Rrose Sélavy (a pun of Eros, C’est la Vie), the feminine alter ego of the author, artist and provocateur Marcel Duchamp, this fresh rose fragrance is as playful as its muse. Petals of Centifolia roses sparkle with peony and Sicilian lemon, all above a seductive base of spring musks and cashmere woods.
I've been covering beauty for the New York Times for the last 11 years and counting. It's as you would imagine: an absolute dream job made all the sweeter because I fell in love with the beauty industry along the way. But considering all the products that I've been lucky enough to swab, spritz and sample, I was probably the last person who would have said the world needs another beauty brand.
