We're not your typical apothecary. We're small. We cater equally to both men and women. We're not driven by commissions. We only sell what we love. Some see our approach to beauty and grooming as a little offbeat, but some of our favorite press (New York Magazine, Time Out, The Village Voice) think we're pretty neat.
