Ellis Brooklyn

A Few thoughts from the Founder:

So it was a surprise when I became pregnant with my daughter Ellis and was living in Brooklyn (hence Ellis Brooklyn!), and when I started cleaning up my beauty routine, that I found there were no sophisticated clean options for fragrance. This was 2013 and the beginnings of clean beauty as we know it today. Skincare and makeup had already made exciting strides, but fragrance was still stuck in another era where ingredients were almost intentionally murky. There was a lot to clear up but I also thought a lot of gorgeous possibility. I have always loved fragrance—it's a powerful, invisible language that can tell a story or conjure a keen memory in one concise sniff.

Especially in our world of non-stop, intense visual imagery, fragrance reconnects us to our sense of smell but also to a present state of mind. Close your eyes, take a whiff and be in the moment. It is perhaps singular in that way in how it can convey well-being. It is this power of perfume—to convey health and beauty— that underlines all of our scents. I'll leave the avant-garde scent experiments to others. While I appreciate, say, the hyperrealistic smell of pencil erasers, I'd rather focus on making something stunningly beautiful and masterfully crafted that becomes part of real day-to-day lives. And let's also be rigorous with our clean beauty standards and source sustainably while we're at it.

Ellis Brooklyn officially debuted in June 2015 and it's truly been a labor of love. I like to call it my third child for after Ellis came my second daughter Sky. Now Sky is asking for her own line, but that'll require some cloning technology so I can make another me.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our fragrances as much as I've enjoyed creating them.

With love,

Bee Shapiro
