APOTHEKE

Luxury home fragrance inspired by life's simple moments.

HOME GROWN

We started out selling soap at farmers markets. 

They were imperfect, they weren't packaged, and they were oddly shaped. But they made us fall in love with ingredients, manufacturing, and scent.

Years later we were still hustling, working multiple jobs, and selling our soaps and candles at flea markets in Brooklyn when a miracle happened. An unassuming man dropped his card at our booth and told us he wanted to place a wholesale order.

Little did we know we would be introduced to the world overnight in West Elm's across the country. Since then we have grown our expertise, our scents, and our love for making beautiful products for everyone we possibly can.

STILL MADE BY HAND

We still pour our candles and bar soaps right here in Brooklyn.

At Apotheke we believe scent can transform a house into a home, elevate our mood, and help keep memories alive.

We believe fragrance can be simple yet captivating, and products should be beautiful, meaningful, and attainable.

We believe that the simplest moments should be relished and appreciated. 

MEET OUR FOUNDER CHRISSY FICHTL

“From making soap in my kitchen, to running my own business”

Founder Chrissy Fichtl’s passion for soap making, scent formulation and essential oils are the roots of what created Apotheke  in 2011.

Chrissy learned about the beauty of essential oils, starting with sourcing ingredients directly from farms and teaching herself the art of soap making in her own kitchen. Over time, she has self taught herself about fragrance blending. 

In the summer of 2012, Apotheke opened their first factory, a 3,000 square foot site in Brooklyn, New York. Chrissy’s husband Sebastian Picasso took on the lead as production. He aided in maintaining the philosophy that high-quality and luxury goods can still be made steps from home by real people.
