Leave it to a chic mom to make luxe and eco-clean fragrances.
New York Times Style columnist Bee Shapiro created Ellis Brooklyn as a collection of body milks and candles after the birth of her first child. Now a mom of two, the Ellis Brooklyn collection is growing to include a eau de parfums.
There are four fragrances:
Rrose — an effervescent creation that sparkles with wit and personality as an ode to Marcel Duchamp’s alter ego Rrose Sélavy;
Raven — mysterious and seductive, inspired by literature’s favorite character;
Fable — a fresh, clean and elegant take on spring in Tel Aviv; and
Myth — a new fragrance that is a soft and sensuous, as modern as it’s urbane.
The fragrances were all created by Jérôme Epinette at Robertet. Not only are they luxurious, but these fragrances are clean, paraben-free, phthalates-free and are made in small batches in New York.
The bottles are faceted sustainably-made glass, topped with a Bakelite compression cap that is biodegradable and contains no petrochemicals. Each of these fragrances is now available at Sephora and on Sephora.com, $100 for 50 ml.
Rrose: Centifolia rose petals, lotus blossom and Sicilian lemon
Raven: Patchouli, peony, blond woods and liquid musks
Fable: Neroli and petitgrain
Myth: Jasmine, tiger orchid, and white cedarwood
