TAMPA, Florida – There’s a new store in Tampa that ships unique fragrances from overseas in America.
“I packed all over the world by myself for four months and ended up in Egypt,” said Ashlee Dozier.
Dozier wanted to change her life, she didn’t know that it would happen in an Egyptian perfumery.
“The walls were just covered in huge bottles of oils with aerobic labels,” Dozier said.
She wafted through the various scents, but it was papyrus that she just had to bring to Florida.
“I fell in love with the oil, wore it as a scent myself every day and kept getting questions: Where does it come from? Where can i get some? “Said Dozier.
She soon realized that papyrus oil was hard to find in the United States, which prompted her to start her own fragrance company, headquartered in the attic of her Tampa home, called Anuket Luxury Apothecary.
“The name comes from the goddess of the Nile because the papyrus is considered a gift from the Nile,” said Dozier.
After just a year in business, Dozier now sells six different oils, all shipped from Egypt, then bottled and sold right here in Tampa and appealing to both women and men.
“I’m trying to create this demand because it comes more and more to people and they realize how beautiful a scent is, that they keep coming back so that we have very loyal customers,” said Dozier.
She’s also not afraid to change over time and expand the fragrance options beyond your skin to your entire home.
“Many of them have the added benefit of being very reassuring. In these stressful times, it’s nice to have something that makes it a little easier in your own home,” said Dozier.
