Have you ever felt like a product was speaking directly to you? This basically sums up my initial encounter with anese. In the midst of mindless scrolling on Instagram, I was immediately drawn to the brand's sassy, pastel-tinted bottles. With quirky names like "Bless this mess," "Fuck bad vibes," and "Don't be sorry, be sexy," these intoxicating elixirs will give you the liquid confidence you need to get through the day.
"The idea came from a series of text messages between me and my girlfriends," says founder Lynnsee van Gordon. "We’re constantly sending one-line comedic responses in support of something embarrassing or an achievement the other had, so our messaging came very natural because it’s an honest window into us as a brand."
Design packaging aside, every scent smells heavenly. You can spritz the perfumes on your body, in your hair... pretty much anywhere you want to smell good. Lucky for us, there's more to anese than just perfume: There's a skin gloss, serum, and body scrub. In other (more literal) words, anese has got you covered from head to toe. The brand's laboratory even gives customers early access to what the brand is working on next.
van Gordon describes the anese girl as someone who is funny, savvy, and always has something to say. "She doesn’t take herself too seriously, but she does take her skin seriously," she adds.
