The Mosaic District: Arielle Shoshana - Sensible Stylista

The Mosaic District: Arielle Shoshana

A few days ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Arielle Weinberg of arielle shoshana at her niche fragrance store in the Mosaic District.  I have a huge collection of perfumes at home, but most of them are mainstream. Now, there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, of course, but I've been looking for a unique scent for god knows how long. Lucky for me, Arielle helped me finally find one!
It was definitely tough - I mean, everything smelled so amazing.  Fragrances were divided into seven different categories for browsing ease: fresh, sweet, citrus, floral, green, fruity, and woods.  My personal favorites were fresh, floral, and citrus.  It was a hard decision, but I ended up getting Atelier Cologne's Pomélo Paradis - the third collab between Atelier Cologne and perfumer Ralf Schwieger. It smelled like a vibrant explosion of juicy pink grapefruit.

In addition to their amazing collection of scents, arielle shoshana offered soaps, shower gels, lotions, creams, candles, diffusers, and teas - I sampled their oolong and earl grey lavender, and both were first rate.  If you're a tea aficionado, I have no doubt you'll fall in love.  
You guys need to check Arielle Shoshana out for yourselves.  If you live in the DMV, do yourself a favor and take a day trip to the Mosaic District to get your browse on STAT.  The store itself is absolutely beautiful, and I promise you'll have a fun time sniffing around!
