Apotheke Fragrance is an artisanal, handmade fragrance brand. Our products are blended, produced, packaged, and shipped by crafters at our Chiba, Japan workshop. The brand name is derived from the German word apotheke, meaning a place where fragrances and medicinal herbs are prepared, or in more modern parlance, a pharmacy. Like your neighborhood pharmacy, Apotheke Fragrance stays true to our customers’ lifestyles, prescribing scents for their everyday lives.
We admire the simple elegance and analog textures found only in the fruits of handmade labor. That’s why we shun machinery and outsourcing, which are the trappings of mass production. This is also why we blend and produce our products naturally, with our own hands, applying our brand seal to product labels and even packing products in boxes with the care of artisans. Our curiosity and endless experimentation with scents has built up a bountiful portfolio of over a hundred different fragrances. What once began with a single product lineup of purely candles has now become a wide range of fragrance items, including room sprays, incense, and more.
