gel hand wash
empowering artists. uplifting communities.
featured artist // EDWARD WALTERS
our partnership with Creative Growth, a non-profit arts center for adults with disabilities, continues to flourish and bring much-deserved recognition to this incredible community of artists. for our next chapter with Creative Growth, we’ve paired four new pieces of artwork with four new limited edition fragrances. we hope this art collection inspires you as much as the artists inspire us.
a wonderful, watery wash of colors arranged in artful architectural shapes is echoed by a subtle, shimmering scent like cool ocean air.
