The Anthousa apothecary collection was born from a century old, family-owned essential oil company. Today, Anthousa starts with the world’s finest ingredients and uses the same time-tested methods to create each delicate blend. Drawing inspiration from the science of botany and the sun drenched terrain of the mediterranean, each Anthousa products is the perfect mix of Beauty, Tradition and Luxury.

 
Anthousa, which means the perfect bloom in Greek, launched in 2004 with 12 home ambiance scents: “They were fragrances inspired by locations of the founderMaria Christofilis has traveld or the scent her mom used to wear—very personal inspirations.
” Instead of creating a fragrance for individual wear, however, Maria decided to create a line to scent living space. “It’s like surrounding yourself with your favorite smells, and your favorite memories.”
 
Now with more than twenty scents and a new bath and body collection, “Anything and everything is inspiration for me: a time period, a particular moment.” To properly convey this, the fragrances had to be as true as possible. “I wanted it to be a collection where everything was very natural,” notes Maria. “There’s real cucumber, real gardenia, real ingredient notes.”
 
To find a fresh new scent to lighten your dorm room, study area, or bedroom, you should be aware of what you’re attracted to, says Christofilis. “Everyone is attracted to something different,” she notes. “For me, my favorite notes are Cyprus, linden blossom, and white gardenia. Cyprus reminds me of where my dad is from in Greece, Linden blossom reminds me of a fragrance my mom used to wear, and white gardenia reminds of a perfume I wore in college.”
For anyone thinking of starting her own business in beauty, Maria’s philosophy rings of Shakespearean wisdom: “It’s good to listen to the advice of people you respect and admire, but at the end of the day, you know what’s right. Do what’s exciting to you and what interests you and everything will come together.”
 

The Anthousa Collection invites you to experience the traditional quality of its fragrances with an Eco-Friendly innovation. This exceptional blends allows the fragrance to disperse evenly while leaving the sticks in place; reverse bundle only if you desire a more intense fragrance.
