All our products are designed and produced by our Scent Artist, Carolyn Hassett, and can be sampled in our Cary studio. The prêt-à-porter fragrances are composed of the same Galimard essences our guests use to make their own scent. The all-natural perfumes, essential oil blends, scrubs, and sprays are handmade, whereas our shea butter lotions are sourced from a reputable supplier and naturally scented with essential oils in-house.
