Nomaterra fragrances aren't just inspired by places, the clever packaging is truly travel friendly. Their high quality scents are available in two forms - space saving wipes ($30 for a set of $12) and refillable glass bottles within a reusable aluminum casing ($96 for 1 ounce). No need to worry about spills or breakage - Nomaterra's packaging is designed to withstand being tossed around in your purse or luggage.
The Nomaterra spring collection features three unique scents that capture the essence of Miami (fruity & floral), East Hampton (woody & floral) and Washington, DC (spice, citrus & musk). I just sampled the Miami scent and those luscious notes of orange blossom, jasmine, melon, and pink grapefruit are a welcome bit of delicious sunshine in the middle of winter.
The company was founded by world traveler Agnieszka (in partnership with her biochemist husband Benjamin) who recounts fleeing communist Poland at the age of one in 1986 with her parents as her most influential journey. No stranger to the beauty industry, Agnieszka worked at Glamour Magazine's beauty department. Made in small batches in Brooklyn, Nomaterra fragrances are well-balanced, distinctive, and a welcome departure from mass-market scents.
