About Velvet & Sweet Pea's Purrfumery


Welcome to Velvet & Sweet Pea’s Purrfumery, a natural botanical perfumery that revives the legacy of the golden era of perfume through a blending of romantic scent and opulent packaging. Founded in 2006 by former wedding florist and fashion designer Laurie Stern, the Purrfumery is a magical garden hideaway in the El Cerrito hills overlooking the San Francisco Bay. Stirred by the romance and mystery of the perfume production of bygone eras, from Cleopatra’s ancient perfumeries to the Victorian love affair with jasmine and roses, Laurie uses methods that harken back in time before mass perfume manufacturing, while her commitment to organics, personal and environmental health and animal welfare are planted firmly in the present.

There are so many ways to experience the luxury of the Purrfumery! Call for an appointment and sniff, sample and shop to your heart’s content, or visit our online boutique. Step through the door into a new world of scent…
