New Orleans, LA
Smoke Perfume was created in 2009 in the kitchen of a beautiful, light-filled, tree house of a home in the Historic New Orleans French Quarter. The founder, Kathleen Currie, had just moved into this timeless neighborhood, and felt drawn to the power and quite tangible feeling of envelopment she got when wearing essential oil blends. Drawing on her background as a holistic health practitioner and massage therapist, she created Smoke using pure essential oils. This blend of vetiver, citrus, and jasmine quickly took on a life of it’s own.
Smoke Perfume launched in 2013, and the line is continuously expanding from what started as a single-fragrance line. Deeply inspired by the founder’s experience of New Orleans, Smoke collaborates whenever possible with other makers. Whether that is through the use of locally sourced Louisiana reclaimed wood (as is used for the packaging of the perfume), or working with two generations of candle makers for the company’s soy candle, Smoke Perfume remains committed to sustainable business practices. Smoke strives to present a product that is all-natural, a joy to use, and aesthetically pleasing. Today Smoke is New Orleans’ premier small-batch, all-natural fragrance company, and continues enchant those who discover this unique brand.
