Anuket is Turning TWO!

It’s such a proud moment. Anuket has officially turned two years old! If you know the story of how Anuket came to be, you know that I was NOT in search of anything but myself at the time. I was traveling with no agenda, looking to reconnect with myself after leaving an abusive relationship, when I hopped on a Nile cruise and found myself at a little perfumery picking out a fragrance to remember my trip by. I could have never guessed the chain of events that would follow but here we are, two years in business and I could not be more grateful for what has transpired, nor more excited for the future.

Where We Started

Once I realized that pure papyrus oil was not readily available in the US, I got right to work. Anuket was founded in the Greater Tampa Bay Area and all of our product based operations remain here today. We are proud to be a woman owned company that supports small family perfumers and other women-owned and minority-owned businesses, all while hand bottling our products here in the USA.

For the majority of the first year, every single operation of Anuket was a one woman show. In the last year I’ve been so grateful to have teams of interns contribute their efforts and help me to expand and scale in many ways. Having interns has also allowed me to fulfill another passion of mine, mentorship. It is always my intention that our intern teams leave with twice as much new knowledge and experience as they’ve brought and that our collaborative time together is full of productivity and growth.

How We’ve Grown

We launched with one product, our signature scent pure papyrus oil. I sold it locally to friends and wholesaled it to retail boutiques. Within the first year we expanded to five other fragrances and started planning additional product lines. Now, two years later, Anuket has customers in 36 states and 11 countries, and counting! We have expanded beyond just personal fragrance to include hair care, demi-fine jewelry, skin & beard care, and home fragrance!

What’s Next

Home fragrance you say? Yes, surprise! Your (many) requests have been heard! Home fragrances are here. All of our scents are available in dropper bottles to make it easy to diffuse them in a mist diffuser, on our jewelry, or via our new scent diffusing decor.  We now offer beautiful scent diffusing bowls with your choice of porous lava rock or selenite crystals. Our customizable options means you can find the perfect look for your home's aesthetic, and a few drops of our oils on the porous stones will keep your home smelling amazing.

That's not all! Coming very soon... Our linen sprays are currently in production and you definitely need one for your home. It's bottled beautifully and makes an excellent housewarming gift as well! Can you tell I'm excited?!
