Verónica Peña’s nature-inspired fragrances are held in blown-glass bottles with picket lids that may be reused as trendy bud vases. They glisten among the many curiosities on this Mexico Metropolis perfume boutique, the place pressed flower petals, seashells, and branches scattered throughout lengthy, picket tables give the place an exquisite mad-scientist-meets-Mom-Nature vibe.
Go pure. You do not want costly decorations, “simply stones or shells or dried flowers,” says Peña, who makes mosaics of colorfully painted seeds as artwork items for her retailer. “We merge nature and creative expression. You may dry flower petals by laying them on a tray, then put them in a glass bottle for [colorful decor].”
Purchase a magnifying glass. Do not let it get anyplace close to your pores — merely place it on a silver tray. Let it encourage you to “take a second to mirror,” says Peña. “We use magnifying glasses to take an in depth have a look at nature, they usually may also be a pleasant reminder to take a more in-depth have a look at your self and [your surroundings].”
Combine supplies. Put a dried rosebud on a tray with purple lipsticks, or scatter pebbles amongst smoky shadows. Curate by idea, displaying linked gadgets in trays, says Peña. “I wish to maintain Monstera, a inexperienced fragrance, with all of the inexperienced issues that remind me of the jungle.”
Stage up. Stack an merchandise, like a lipstick, fragrance, or face masks, on a wooden block (books work too) to attract consideration to it.
