Are your products vegan and cruelty free?
Yes, all our products are 100% vegan and cruelty free.
How are your scents made?
Founder and fragrance designer Molly Ray custom blends each fragrance drawn from inspiration from the intended wearer. The process includes developing a custom formula using natural ingredients, balancing, blending, and wear-testing before it is thoughtfully named, bottled and packaged.
Where do you source your ingredients?
We source our vendors primarily from the Pacific Northwest, with a majority procured from a special apothecary in Seattle. Special oils may be ordered from vendors based elsewhere in the region or as nearby as possible, such as Mountain Rose Herbs. Occasionally, some scents are infused with special raw fragrance oils imported directly from France, sourced during Molly’s studies at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery in Grasse.
We know how important it is to understand where oils are sourced from, so care is taken to understand as much information about the vendor supply chain as possible before purchasing. Sustainable procurement is a journey. We continually search for the best options for each product in terms of environmental and social impact.
Do you offer events or classes?
Yes! Founder and designer Molly Ray hosts custom fragrance events that can accommodate up to 5 guests in her Fragrance Lab, sharing information about the history of perfumery, walking guests through a fragrance experience, understanding tastes and preferences, and designing a custom fragrance for each.
