WHO WE ARE
Apologue is an artisan perfume house located in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest rainforest, where hummingbirds are our constant companions. Here is where each fragrance is designed, small-batched, aged, bottled, buffed, and packaged.
As we handcraft our perfumes, we select for the intrinsic benefit as well as the beauty of each rare and vibrant, raw material. The result is an intimate experience of luxury and well-being that transcends scent alone.
Combined with a little extra alchemy and a natural quartz crystal placed in each bottle, our perfumes impart positive energies to continually uplift, inspire, and reflect the unique beauty and strength that is your own.
An APOLOGUE is a type of story. Specifically, it is allegorical, where one story of insight is embedded in another story; a story within a story. Indeed, our perfumes are fragrant narratives within the unique and beautiful epic that is yours, the Journey of the Inner Dreamer.
OUR OWN STORY began with one woman working two jobs, using fragrance in both. By day she was pioneering the use of natural aromatics in patient care. After hours she was a perfumer creating beautiful perfumes for the world. Over time, these two skills merged, flowering into a modern yet ancient approach to perfume, which today is Apologue Perfumes.
Our vision is to help the world become more beautiful by uplifting people in an enjoyable, mood-lifting, non-time-consuming, and stress-free way. We support and accelerate self-knowledge and true self-empowerment.
Our passion is the power of beauty to elevate the spirit and move the world. Our hope is to help humanity. Call it an ambassadorship for the power of all things beautiful and fragrant to uplift the human heart.
Our Intuitive Perfumed Elixirs are a new kind of perfumed product, that encourages fragrance and beauty on many levels. Made from natural materials, they are better for personal health and the environment. And they are uniquely capable of a little magical alchemy all their own.
Apologue also uplifts girls through our ongoing partnership with The Hiari Project, an organization that saves girls from FGM and child marriage in exchange for giving them a high school education.
“In the garden of the heart, plant naught but the rose of love.”
