    Vitruvi is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.

    "I am a big candle fan, but the ones I love are super expensive, so nowadays I like to get my aromatherapy on in other ways. Yes, she costs a pretty penny, but she is worth every dang cent. It's pretty small, meaning up it doesn't take up too much real estate, but packs a huge punch when it comes to scent. I would recommend pairing it with some Vitruvi essential oils — they're super potent and you'll feel like a chemist coming up with your own scents (I'm really into lavender, grapefruit, and cedarwood ATM)."—Alice Prendergast
