We believe in doing good work

and being nice to people

We also believe that fragrance is personal- not commercial, and that integrating scent into a brand's overall marketing and communication strategy allows you to leverage the psychological and emotional power of fragrance to reinforce brand messaging and increase brand loyalty.

Our brand is built upon the legacy of medicine woman Mary Lena “Chémin” Portalis, the paternal grandmother of our founder November Nichols. She cared for herself and others with grace and love and created hand-crafted tea remedies, fragrant tinctures, and rituals, which she shared with her community. It was her belief that beauty is cultivated from within - and we could’t agree with her more
