Named after the Greek word for "perfect bloom," Anthousa specializes in luxurious and chic essential oils and home scents that evoke the sun-soaked Mediterranean seaside. Founded by Maria Christofilis, this Seattle-based company produces candles, personal fragrances, and hand-blown glass decanters that blend floral and citrus elements such as pomegranate, mint, hibiscus, and freesia. Anthousa’s delightful ambiance candle collection includes the lemon-and-lily-of-the-valley aqua verbena and the popular, honeysuckle-scented Bougainvilla 1768 candle; among its most popular diffusers are the fig leaf & bitter almond demi-diffuser and reed versions in lavender and green cucumber. All of Anthousa's items arrive in beautifully packaging, making them ideal as gifts.
