I can remember when I first met Almira Armstrong. I had just opened PATRICIA and was looking for a signature fragrance line for the store. I was immediately drawn to Almira and her beautiful, and beautifully scented line of candles.
One of our newest finds: Incense from Japanese company POJ Studio. Coming soon to PATRICIA
Because the olfactory nerve is directly linked to the area of the brain that accesses memory recall, mood, and emotions – scent is then very closely tied to memory. Because of this, what smells good to you may not necessarily smell good to another person.
Scent as part of Wellness:
"Scent can be incorporated into so much of your daily wellness routine. Incense has been used for thousands of years in ceremonies and rituals, especially in meditation practices. The simple act of lighting incense can help ground during your morning meditation or Movement practices such as yoga."
"There is nothing quite like the sheer amount of time we now spend indoors to make us think of how our spaces can affect our energy. The light through our window can lift our mood. A view can bring us a sense of calm or conversely energise us. We can find joy through the objects we fill our home with. And we all know the effects of mess and clutter on our mental capacity. But what about scent? As equally as objects can alter our mood so too can smells. The power of scent can transform our energy and transport us to another time and place."
Come see us and let us help you discover which scents transport you to a beautiful, calm place 🖤
