Hello SOTGC community, Here is my latest fabulous find for our “Monthly Must Haves.”
1509 BY MATTHIAS, For Him & Her: 1509 is the address where fragrance artist Sophia Matthias grew up, deep in the canyons and amongst the trees of her native Los Angeles. To her, it is the most enchanting, most precious place in this world. Imagine life as a house. A house so full of life. All aspects of life. There are countless of small things that make a house a home. So many memories, so many smells. Sophia’s home inspired her to find just a few simple scents to wear that would always bring her back. Each bottle of 1OO% pure fragrance oil is designed by hand for the essence of either woman or man. The natural touch of these oils, using no alcohol, will dance on your skin in a clean and delicate, yet captivating and unique manner.
1509 is the scent that takes you back, that knows no gender, simply makes you feel like yourself.
“ I never wanted to smell like anyone else.”
Sophia Matthias: The founder and CEO of 1509 never quite took a liking to the synthetics of perfumes or colognes. Growing up, she was blessed with living in a natural environment that cultivated beauty, serenity, creativity and love. At age 13 the young alchemist began mixing oils and designing scents in her bedroom to create her own unique scent so she could carry a piece of her home around with her wherever she went. Two years ago Sophia moved to New York City to pursue her love of performing arts. During the first few months there, she would get stopped multiple times a day being asked the few simple words, “what is that smell?” Two years later her two uniquely packaged scents (for woman and man alike) are being featured and sold in museums and select boutiques through environmental installations around the country… and it all started with a young woman, a vision, a memory of the love from her childhood, and is now available to us.
Mantra: This Is For Ways We Live. It’s about the home, the love, the family and experiences I had growing up at 1509.
