Time Out says
We’ll warn you now: after exploring this artisanal fragrance boutique, you’ll never again be able to stomach that synthetic department store spritz. Proprietress Alexandra Balahoutis creates her certified organic wares from pure botanical essences in-house, referring to her process as "narrative" fragrance making that evokes places, people and scenarios through scent. Fair Verona, for instance, was inspired by Shakespeare’s Juliet, resulting in a mélange of jasmine, sandalwood, mimosa and pink grapefruit.
