Looking for the Perfect Gift for Your Girlfriends? – I have been a loyal customer of Essenza, Inc. since I moved to Fremont (Seattle, WA) several years ago. I have to say, at first, I was intimidated to go into the shop. It reminded me of those little boutiques that line the streets of Paris. With their favorable lighting scheme, beautiful aromas and artistic interior designs, Essenza, Inc. beckoned me inside with that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. And I wasn't disappointed. The staff couldn't have been more amicable. The owner was also there that day, and was warm and friendly, explaining to me how she sourced the creative and custom crafted trinkets and baubles that line the glass jewelry cases. While some of the pieces were meant to be admired more than acquired (based on my budget), the girls of the shop helped me find the loveliest little lockets for my girlfriends which were very reasonably priced. I remember how excited they were when they received the lovely little boxes, which on top of housing the lovely necklaces, were adorned in seasonal wrapping fit for a queen, a courtesy offered when a purchase is made, no matter how small the item purchased. They use high quality materials, including multi-colored ribbons, silk flowers and matching tissue paper inside the little brown boxes. Since my 1st visit, I have returned with increasing frequency to purchase increasingly expensive gifts (I love their jewelry personally and for others), as well as their extensive line of toiletry products (like the brand, Sugar, which is a fave of mine but so are many others they carry). In fact, I needed 4 hostess gifts for the women who planned my baby shower, and as I expected, Essenza was able to furnish me with 4 unique pieces of jewelry, all without breaking the bank. All in all, you have to stop in Essenza, Inc. during your next visit to Fremont! I cannot say enough about this shop!
Best Place to Indulge the Senses – Follow your nose....as you walk down 35th street in quaint Fremont you'll be led straight to Essenza. By far the most beautiful store I've ever had the pleasure of stepping foot into. You'll be romanced by it's old world charm and enchanted by all of the luxury products so beautifully displayed. Hands down the best parfumery I've been in even better than the european one's I've visited. Find out how much better scent is when it's blended by a real parfumer and not filled with imitation scents but rather authentic essences. Some favorites are Diptyque, Serge Luten, L'artisan & Carthusia. The bath products will make your senses hungry for more. Try the hamman bath soak by Red Flower and the Sake bath by Fresh and your sure to be transported into another world. Not to mention the stunning jewelry from local and other US designers...especially Jamie Joseph our own fabulous creator of the most stunning gemstone jewelry! I could go on and on clearly. You must go in and have some time so you can puruse.
Beautiful niche perfumes - found Carthusia here – I love Essenza!! The girls are very helpful and the store is just adorable! The carry the most beautiful niche perfumes! I found Carthusia here which is my favorite niche perfume. Wonderful wonderful! A girls dream....
I have shopped at Essenza over the years and it is one of my favorite shops in Seattle. The staff is friendly and helpful but they don?t hover ? even when you lather yourself with the samples of lotions and perfumes. The fragrances are heavenly. The ?lavish yourself in silk and satin? sleepwear is also heavenly. Plus, I have often bought cosmetics there since they have very high quality skincare and makeup products by manufactureres such as ?Fresh? who make two creamy lipstick colors I adore. Best of all, it?s one of my favorite places to buy gifts since the gift wrapping is so lovely. I highly recommend Essenza as a destination shop.
best shop in seattle!!!! – I don't know where to begin. This store has great service and great prices[for some things]. I just love this place!!!!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL Shop!
Best soaps – I love love love essenza. this is one of the only stores i know of on the west coat that sells my favorite popari from Florence, Italy!
I loved next to Santa Maria Novella in Florence, and Essenza carries the same popari that is sold right there in the square!
a la Paris – Pick this boutique up and put it in Paris and it would fit right in. Lovely products and unique scents that you don't find everywhere.
Sweet scents and little luxuries for all the delicate flowers on your gift list. – The Scene
This airy Fremont store owes its distinctly European look to owners Jim and Becky Buford, who built it as a beauty products-oriented counterpart to Les Amis. Jim designed the place, from the elaborate iron jewelry cases to the rakishly conceived counter. The stone fountain in the center of the store burbles country French elegance. The products are all European or Euro-inspired (read: pure and not perfumy).
Delicate bath products, precious baby clothes and dainty loungewear all flaunt an unmistakable French accent here. Peruse products from L'Occitane, E. Coudray Paris and the Fresh cosmetics line, otherwise available only at Barneys (check out the hazelnut clove wrapped in lizard-skin paper and tied with a copper filigree). Though some items are sinfully indulgent ($72 for a pair of slippers), others are downright reasonable ($7 for Fresh soaps).
