Apotheke X J.Crew
WITH FOUNDER CHRISSY FICHTLAhead of the release of our new candle collaboration with the home fragrance brand, we visited their 16,000-square-foot factory in Red Hook, Brooklyn. They’ve grown quite a bit since their start as a little apothecary in 2011, but they’re still making everything by hand. We spent the morning with Chrissy, touring the warm, incredibly scented space, to talk about what makes Apotheke special.

You go to an apotheke when you need to
feel good. Everywhere you go in the world—
from Europe to Buenos Aires—it’s healing.
Self-care has always been important for me.

“It took about six months to land on the scents for Apotheke X J.Crew. It really was a collaborative effort. In the end, I think it’s the best of Apotheke and the best of J.Crew.”

You light a candle to create a
sense of home, to create a
Zen moment, to create space
for yourself.

I have a few powerful scent memories, but with the
holidays coming, I think of the smell of butter cookies.
Every year, my dad would take a day off between
Thanksgiving and Christmas and bake cookies from 8am
to 8pm. We would eat them for months afterwards.
