Bottled Stories by Sweet Anthem

Through smoke, and maybe a few mirrors here and there, our NW perfumers compose artisan fragrances based on legends and lore we love – and christens them for the heroes and heroines within.

Since 2007, each Sweet Anthem product has been crafted by hand from very, very small batches in our Pacific Northwest studio. Our perfumes are 100% vegan friendly – all musks, honeys, and leather notes are makeshift components designed to smell like the real thing. We are so committed to this vegan thing that we've been approved by PETA.

We like to think of our perfumes as little ecologies that showcase the beauty of worlds we've never been to but want to go to. Our literature-obsessed nature means that each fragrance has a story to tell, from the first whiff to the last moment it leaves your skin. In short, we are award winning fragrance makers, and we love little else but the opportunity to transport you into the ingress of other realms.

Sweet Anthem Perfumes is the brainchild of writer, designer, and creative nerd Meredith Smith. This business all began as a shoebox under her bed in the mid-2000s, until some friends directed her to Etsy. Since 2016, the brand has moved to Portland under the helm of the talented Marisa Borrevik, who has taken over the day to day production of perfumes and operations of the shop. Meredith occasionally pokes her head in to collaborate on new developments, but is enjoying time as a new mom with her tiny human.

    The Storyteller

    Since before she can remember, Smith has been a writer and editor with a passion for showcasing the perfect story. She loves meta, theatre, drama, and performance – so it's not a surprise that her fragrances are little stories inside tiny vials.
