While being in New York in 2011, we were shopping at the Meatpacking LVC Store.

We bought some Denim but we also bought some candles; the LVC Store had a very nice selection of Scents of Land candles.

By then we didn’t knew the Brand but when we smelt the candles, we were conquered.

Scents of Land was established in 2009.

They are really providing the highest quality products using only the finest ingredients.

Each product is handmade with 100% natural ingredients at them New York atelier, where they carefully blend natural fragrance and pure essential oils.

Light a candle, close your eyes, you are in front of the Ocean at Big Sur or in the Nevada Desert or somewhere else, but you are travellin’……..

 

 

 

 

 


There’s so much good Denim Brand coming up this last few years that it’s impossible to know all of them.

Here’s a good example : Loren Denim.

Loren Denim is a Denim Brand located in Brooklyn and as you have guess : specialized in Denim.

All have started with founder Loren Cronk who had open some years ago a denim repair shop in Brooklyn.

A few years later he decided to create his own jeans, the Loren Brand was born.

They have a few different lines : Loren, Blksmth and Soldier & Brave.

The one that interest us is Loren. Loren specializes in hand-crafted premium denim that is truly one-of-a-kind, from fabric to finish.

The design aesthetic subtly riffs on classic and vintage style, resulting in wearable and enduring pieces that are built for living in.

They are influenced by them neighborhood and are very proud to say that they are Made in Brooklyn !

 

 

 

 

 

 


At Supra-Quintessence, we love vintage watches, so when we have learned about Baltic Watches, we were positively surprised.

Baltic Watches in a new vintage inspired watches company.

Baltic Watches is a family of watch connoisseurs with a passion for traditional craftsmanship. They believe the most timeless and desirable watches are often the simplest however, it seems many modern watch brands add unnecessary complexity to their designs.

For this reason we decided to create Baltic Watches. They want to focus on a more authentic approach, bringing together the purest watchmaking techniques to create a vintage-inspired timepiece for your wrist.

The results are neo-vintage, 1940’s-style watches with mechanical movements and well-proportioned cases inspired by the traditional Step Case watch (recognisable by its distinctive ridge or step surrounding the hesalite glass).

A negative point is that most of the Baltic Watches movements are Made in China. We are sure that those movements aren’t bad but if you already assembling all the watches in France, why not buying Swiss movements ?

For sure the watches would have been more expensive, but on the other hand, people agree to pay more for real quality….

Baltic Watches are for the moment on Kickstarter.
