Our Story

Victoria Johnson, of Maryland, envisioned bringing affordable fragrances to inspire joy and a sense of positive self energy to people of all ages in the neighborhoods that she grew up in the city of Baltimore through her sense of personal aromatherapy. Being a trained fragrance specialist, she understood that Aromatherapy is much bigger than just essential oils. Aromatherapy is any fragrance that invokes a positive energy, be it a memory, a feeling, a comfort, an image, a presence, a joy, a lift or any positive good feeling that can carry you away to use your imagination, if even just for a moment. Aromatherapy is inspiring. Aromatherapy and fragrance can can inspire you to feel better about your life, about your day, about what you’re looking forward to in the future.
