Chrome Atomizer

We love this stylish, dark grey, metallic, slim-line atomizer. Refillable so you may change scents depending on the season or your mood. Light, even spray dispenses just the right amount of fragrance. Smaller than a tube of lip stick, this companion travels everywhere from a Judith Leiber evening bag to a Chanel tote. Available in store and on line. $10.

Arcia Luxury Single Soap



For a feminine hostess gift, we suggest single guest soaps packaged in a handmade white silk moire paper box. The face of each soap is carved into a beautiful basket of spring flowers. We love the Acacia scent which is a soft spring floral fragrance.
Available in store and on line. $9
