For more than 25 years, Apothia has been the ultimate shopping experience for fashionable trendsetters. Its prestigious Los Angeles address is synonymous with beauty, fashion and style. Apothia products fuse art & innovative design with world-class ingredients and craftsmanship. Apothia is renowned for using advanced formulas to reconstruct high quality, world-class ingredients into premium fragrance blends.
Founded by Ron Robinson, the first boutique opened as part of Fred Segal on Melrose Avenue, L.A. in 1978. Previously a salesman, buyer and eventually Vice President of Fred Segal, Robinson expanded his boutique with the beauty department named Apothia in the 1980’s. Apothia blends the words “apothecary” and “utopia”.
Ron Robinson launched IF in 2000. Highly successful, IF spurred Robinson to create Apothia Los Angeles, a line of fine fragrances and award-winning interior aromatics. Today, Apothia enjoys worldwide popularity. Apothia fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Yann Vasnier, Stephen Nilsen and Rayda Vega.
