Knowing that I will be working on the projects I’ve created and imagined.
Hi Wildflower started as a blog with my sister Promiti – our focus was culture, feminism & flowers. I knew I wanted to release a line based on my philosophy that flowers commemorate the most important aspects of our lives. That happened after I got laid off from a startup. I started studying perfumery and Ayurvedic herbalism. I started with some natural beauty goods and four perfumes and shared the work at Bushwick Open Studios. Folks were digging the scents so I sold at my first Renegade Craft Fair and reached out to local shops in Williamsburg, where I live.
Brooklyn is home, New York is where I remember why I love this chaotic beautiful and colorful city.
Hi Wildflower Sándalo is woodsy, warm, grounding and inspired by the hinterland coast of Hawai’i.
When I want to relax, I go for something that reminds me of being in nature, esp. because I live in the city. Mojave is my palo santo perfume, inspired by sacred burnables, Joshua Tree and the sensation of staring into outer space in the desert. Ancients is a walk through a redwood forest, wet soil and fir and lavender calm the spirit.
LIPSTICK! and every single color in my new Matí Collection in an earth tone for every tone.
I want to keep making connections between olfaction, writing, multimedia art installations. I love hybrid, interdisciplinary forms and want to evolve a body of work that reflects this nature.
We are all grappling with what it means to be the first of our kind. Your ideas and dreams can only be actualized by you, so let the world experience this gift!
