It was a sad day when one of our favorite indie shops, In Residence, shuttered its Sawtelle storefront earlier this year. At the time of closing, owner Rachel Salzman hinted that she was "ready to move on to new things," which kept us all guessing. Not one to leave loyal fans hanging for too long, she's just announced the launch of a new scent e-shop called Eden Fragrance.
"We have missed you something fierce since we closed In Residence, but we heard you loud and clear that you just couldn't bear to live without our beloved signature perfume oil," Salzman noted in a newsletter last Friday. "We promised that we'd bring it back, and the day has come to introduce Eden Fragrance. New name, new look and new larger size...same amazing natural formula and incredible appeal."
Pre-order the $52 classic scent here before June 28 for free shipping (if you like musk and light florals, it's a must), and stay tuned for more fragrances.
