Juniper Ridge is “the world’s only wild fragrance company” that bottles scents from harvested wild plants, moss and trees from the outdoors of America’s West Coast. Founder Hall Newbegin calls Juniper Ridge a collective of hikers, not perfumers, who seek 100% organic and natural ingredients. Indeed, their “backpacker’s colognes” make you feel like you are actually out in the woods, with pungent natural smells reminiscent of grass, rain and hiker trails.
Arquiste was founded by Mexican architect Carlos Huber who used to be an interior designer for Polo Ralph Lauren. He moved to New York for Arquiste, which soon won prestigious titles such as Fashion Group International’s Best Fragrance Entrepreneur Brand and the Fragrance Foundation’s Top 5 Brands Launched in the U.S.
