APOTHEKE is a luxury home fragrance brand inspired by the unexpected beauty found in life's simple moments. Founder Chrissy Fichtl’s passion for soap making, scent direction 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.
In the summer of 2012, APOTHEKE opened their first factory, a 3,000 square foot site in Brooklyn, New York, with Chrissy’s husband Sebastian Picasso in the lead production role. He aided in maintaining the philosophy that high quality goods can still be made steps from home.
APOTHEKE has come a long way and has expanded into diffusers and body care, but the vision hasn't changed. The candles and soaps are still made by hand, and each fragrance is thoughtfully blended at their Brooklyn headquarters.
