Maria's of the mind that there shouldn't be anything in your soap or perfume that you can't pronounce. And for the last five years, she's made that her mission — crafting delightful-smelling soaps and such, with nary a chemical in sight. Her scents are thoroughly tested, naturally-derived and, above all, memorable. A very visually-driven sort of person, Maria surrounds her studio with a sundry of herbs and botanicals to inspire creativity. And it's this dedication to creating a natural, awesome-smelling alternative to most perfumes, aftershaves and bath soaps on the market that stands out.
