Secret d’Apothecaire: A Venture of Love and Chemistry
The English have long referred to pharmacists as chemists. It’s rather fitting, therefore, that it was the chemistry between a pharmacist and an interior designer that brought Secret d’Apothecaire (French for “the apothecary’s secret”) into the world of home fragrance. Together, Muriel and Frédéric Dana have combined their talents- her tasteful style and his knowledge of fragrance- to create this beautiful Normandy-based brand. Each candle or scent is named after a destination or situation that can be evoqued by the scent- dÎner aux chandelles, or candlelight dinner, and soirée au château, or evening at the castle, among others.
