Cheeky, sweet or sexy? Get her a feel-good without the boring chocolate and roses. Even better, get her in a good mood with these sweet somethings. Taking a more personal approach than usual this season, I added spikes of ‘feel-goods’ to get the mood going. Here are a few favorite things I found this season at my local Euro-flavored SoHo pharmacy, Thompson Chemists.
Curated by husband and wife team Gary (the pharmacist) and Jolie (the European product queen), Thompson Chemists has been a favorite go-to for locals and creatives in the city. A favorite aromatic stop for European skincare lovers like me and other SoHo locals, models, artists, and designers, the mom and pop shop has been around for at least 25 years if not more.
For this Valentine’s day, Jolie and I curated some faves to gift the mood of romance, anytime. All available at Thompson Chemists. While mosst products are available online, some seasonal items are exclusively in the store, which offers messenger delivery in the NYC area. You can stop into the store, call, email for special orders, or shop online. (Mention FashionDailyMag for 10%discount too! ). @thompsonchemists @thompsonalchemists.
