Founded by Bee Shapiro, the New York Times beauty columnist and contributor to Vogue, Vanity Fair, InStyle, Glamour and Yahoo Beauty, Ellis Brooklyn was born from experience and love. When Bee became pregnant with her baby girl Ellis, she found there were no options out there for the luxury fragrance lover who also sought non-toxic formulations. Enter Ellis Brooklyn, named after her daughter, which marries the incredible paraben-free, phthalates-free creations of renowned perfumer Jerome Epinette with the artisanal, natural formulations crafted in small batches in upstate New York. With each whiff, inhale and breath, the scents each tell a story.
Fable Eau de Parfum
Set in the forests of Arcadia, this elegant orange blossom scent is roused by the first meeting of Androcles and the Lion. The gorgeous initial bloom plays with dewy violet, petitgrain and honeysuckle before being rounded by the warmth of crisp amber and cedarwood. The moral of the famous Aesop fable is kindness—Androcles removes a thorn from the lion’s paw—a notion as lovely as the fragrance.

Terrific Scented Candle - Fable
Terrific Scented Candle - Pseudonym
Inspired by the D.H. Lawrence poem "Figs".
The fragrance starts with the fresh green notes of Capri fig and then blossoms into a seductive blend of jasmine, pepper and sandalwood-- the kind of mysterious scent perfect for assuming a Pseudonym.
Terrific Scented Candle - Raven
Witty, mysterious, captivating yet imbued with a sense of humor.
The Raven has held a mythic status in a variety of literature from the dark leanings of Edgar Allan Poe to the clever depictions atop Native American totem poles.
This stunning peony-patchouli vies for the same complexity of character—the seduction lasts long before the first notes of mandarin and rhubarb, developing into a heady olfactive brew underlined by blond woods and liquid musks.
Terrific Scented Candle - Verb
A dynamic scent inspired by the frank, action-oriented prose of American authors from Ernest Hemingway to Kurt Vonnegut, masters of transmitting emotion without over-adornment.
The Verb fragrance bursts forth with fresh notes of bergamot, mandarin and basil before layering on complexity by way of cedarwood and skin musks—at once addictive and enlivening.
