Revera Beauty co-owner and in-house aromatherapist Violet Brand is a woman with real street scents. After opening the local boutique a little more than a year ago on Roosevelt Row, Brand has managed to work her way up our noses and into our hearts with custom blended perfumes, creams, oils, soaps, and even perfume-blending workshops.
What are some of your most popular Revera products?: The foot cream, lip balm, and Bodhi spray — it's a unisex scent that's dark, has spice, and is very alluring. The Bodhi spray goes great on men and it's really sexy on women.
Favorite scents: Jasmine and nutmeg right now. Oh, and hemlock! — Katie Johnson
