From Frightening Stories to Frightfully Good Fragrances

I'm Beth and I'm an author and perfumer.

I've written books about history, legends, and (my personal favorite) ghosts. It should come as no surprise then that my love of all things historical and spooky has had such a heavy influence on my perfumery. Like many other perfumers, I truly believe that creating fragrances is simply another form of storytelling.

Much like writing, I've been creating old-fashioned perfumes and beauty products as a hobby for as long as I can remember. My nose was formally "trained" when I worked as a perfumer with Aveda. After creating custom fragrances for Aveda clients for several years, I began blending my own line of scents, and eventually started my own company. 

I continued my education in perfumery during that time and I now hold a Fragrance Expert certification from the Fragrance Foundation, a not-for-profit organization established in 1949 that is dedicated to serving as a resource for industry expertise, innovation, and education. 

All of the Apothescary Scents perfumes are crafted by hand from natural (organic when possible) ingredients and are packaged in recyclable materials. I am highly sensitive to most common allergens and irritants, and I blend my perfumes with other sensitive folks in mind. If you EVER have a question about specific ingredients, please feel free to ask!
