Aedes De Venustus



At the end of a quiet and curvy West Village street you will find an inviting haven for fragrance fans. Velvet drapes, floral arrangements and an oversized chandelier set the stage for Aedes de Venustas. An aromatic retreat whose devotees include Sarah Jessica Parker, Liv Tyler and Hugh Jackman. Aedes supplies high-end, hard-to-find perfumes, skin care, candles and home scents from around the world.

One smell that I like in the winter months is Pierre Frapin Cellar Ambiance Spray. The fragrance was created by Béatrice Cointreau who grew up in her family’s estate in Grande Champagne, the most prestigious area in Cognac. As a tribute to her grandfather, Pierre Frapin, Béatrice created a scent that recreates the intimate feel of her childhood home – wood and leather with hints of honey, vanilla and walnuts.

Fortunately you don’t have to live in New York to enjoy the wonderful offerings of Aedes. Most of their products are available online from their beautiful website. Unfortunately you do have to live in the United States…sigh…

"Set the stage" is certainly an apt term here. That window is gorgeous. And as for the delivery limitations: you'll just have to plan another trip! :-D

I'm such a sucker for scents! So sad that I can't smell these beautiful bottles over the internet. Looks like I will have to put it on my "to do in NY" list.

Wow, looks gorgeous. If you get desperate between trips back to the US, try www.shopanyamericanstore.com - I've used them before and their service is good. They let you do exactly as their website suggests, and ship to anywhere in the world. I'm loving it!
