2. Sonoma Scent Studio (California)

3. Charenton Macerations (New York)

4. Phoenicia (New York but always Seattle to me…)

5. Aftelier (California)

6. DSH Perfumes (Colorado)

7. aroma M/House of Cherry Bomb (New York)

8. Opus Oils (California)

11. Sweet Anthem (Washington)

12. MIKMOI (California)

13. Smell Bent (California)

14. Soivhohle (Ohio)

If you get bored this weekend or don’t want to watch stuff explode into bright colors, take the time to visit these indie sites and support America’s wonderful indie perfumers. Made in the USA.

  1. love it!

    hey, thanks Victoria, for being such a champion of indie business. yours is such an important link between the art/artist and audience.


    1. It was actually really difficult to keep it limited to this. I want to add like 10 more but I thought a list of 25 is overwhelming πŸ™‚

    1. I really haven’t tried enough to have one πŸ™‚ Their catalog is huge and I’ve tried 5 (which were given to me by a nice fragrance friend). I loved 2 and didn’t like the other 3 (not because they were bad but because they weren’t for me – one was a tea and the other two had tons of immortelle). The 2 that I liked were limited and I wasn’t able to get bottles πŸ™

      The brand has a cult following and I totally get the appeal. I really should sample more from them.
