The boutique also carries prestigious collections sold at high-end retailers and Nolita perfumeries and is dedicated to supporting established and emerging Brooklyn olfactive artists."

Hours: Tue-Sun: 12pm-7pm
 

If you visit a Manhattan fragrance boutiques or places like Barney's and Bendel, you will meet a sophisticated sales person who will guide you through products in a steady sophisticated way, but they will keep their eyes on the next customer. If however, you go to an apothecary in Brooklyn, like the newly opened Twisted Lily and meet Ginger on the buzzing Atlantic Avenue, you will have an experience that you can’t have anywhere else.

At first, there is the personal taste, the addiction to perfumes and the magnetism of the Brooklyn natives that does not need any further justification or argument. Secondly, the store may not have the spaciousness of a Manhattan or a Paris store, but endless stories and comparisons may become overwhelming for anyone. And this is when the "Brooklyn Test" comes into play—to uphold and accept the ability to personalize and be passionate. All of this will be part of your shopping experience, no matter what you will have come here to shop for. The remarkable and penetrating Brooklyn experience will unmistakably become a part of that dense Slumber House scent, the unbelievable Etat Libre D’Orange experience, or Penhaligon’s effortless sophistication ...

Next to a selection of tasty snacks and generously packed goody bags, guests were treated to intoxicating drinks created by Gwen Sutherland, who used perfumes as her inspiration.

Now meet Eric Weiser and Stamatis Birsimijoglou, the founders of the Twisted Lily. Their boutique features original indies, natural and cult perfumes and other semi-liquids for indulgent body care. The warmly welcoming and helpful team have spent more than a decade on the Perfume Trail and on their website, parfum1.com. And eventually the two Brooklyners decided that it was time for a brick and mortar store to be opened. Eric and Stamatis wanted to increase customer satisfaction and ensure that every visitor to their boutique would have a memorable and pleasant shopping experience.

Their amazing collection features quite a few niche and hard-to-find fragrances and includes many of our favorites like Providence Perfume, Tommi Sooni, Montale, Amouage, Patricia de Nicolai, L'Artisan Parfumeur, Undergreen, Maria Candida Gentile, Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Ramon Monegal, Mona di Orio, Thirdman, Belle Fleur, Rouge Bunny Rouge, Jardins d’Ecrivains Perfumes and Candles and even more niche and natural perfumes and beauty products! And we should not forget to mention that one of the shelves in Twisted Lily is dedicated to remarkably fresh and stylish Brooklyn brands CB I Hate Perfume, D.S. & Durga and Joya.

Eric and Stamatis believe in their mission. With the fusion of two creative souls and a cozy space you are invited to join the celebration of the great artistry of perfumes.


"We wanted to expand the experience of selling perfume to something more intimate—the difference between ordering a product or sample on the internet versus the experience of discovering fragrance in person."

I am a big fan of Twisted Lily and have ordered at least Seven wonderful fragrances from them in the past two months. Stamatis is wonderful. He has always included generous and interesting samples, two of which I am inhaling as I type this. I'm expecting another delivery in the morning.

As much as it saddens me that we have no wonderful niche fragrance boutique here in the nation's capitol, it is probably for the best. Were I to live near Twisted Lily I would be a penniless basket case.

I just want to say that I've done business with Stamatis several times via email and over the phone, and he is one of the kindest, most helpful people I have ever dealt with in retail. He's a true gentleman and a consummate professional. So glad you guys are on the scene!

It's good to see the culture of small niche perfumery shops spreads out trough USA. In Italy you have hundreds, maybe thousands of stores across the country that cherish this nice form of art... in United States shopping habits are different and everything is centered around shopping malls. It's hard to compete in such environment.

We also plan to visit Twisted Lily next time we visit NYC and we are very pleased that Twisted Lily selected The Vagabond Prince to be part of their exquisite collection.
