Holiday gift picks from 2Note Perfumery

There’s a reason why Portland has a reputation for having such a wonderful array of small businesses. Here, you can find things that you’d be hard-pressed to discover in other cities. 2Note Perfumery is one of those gems. After all, not every city has it’s own botanical perfumery where the shop sells and makes their natural array of perfumes, skincare and bodycare on the premise. The cherry on the top of course are Darcy and Carolyn, the owners and creators of the line, who are happy to stop what they’re mixing and chat to help you find the right scent.

When you give someone a gift from 2Note, you know that it’s been hand mixed and poured right on the premises, with lots of love and attention in every bottle. Now that’s music to our ears.

Stop into the shop if you see something here that you like or give them a call!
