AGRARIA - Many Agraria fans have fond memories dating back to 1970 of discovering our Taylor Street boutique on Nob Hill with its eclectic mix of country English and French antiques, books on California wines, recordings of pianist Peter Mintun and of course their signature Bitter Orange Potpourri and original Balsam Candle. Agraria was also prominently featured at the new Stanford Court Hotel and the flagship I. Magnin store in Union Square.
Back when Henri Bendel's legendary director, Geraldine Stutz, was given her first box of Bitter Orange potpourri, she immediately smelled success and invited Agraria's founders, Stanford Stevenson and Maurice Gibson to showcase Agraria at the front door of Bendel's "Scentiments" shop. The New York Times reported "the woodsy blend from San Francisco called Agraria turned up in half the living rooms on Park Avenue."
Today, Agraria has the distinction of being American's oldest and largest luxury home fragrance company, and can be found at the finest shops throughout the world...from San Francisco to Shanghai, Miami to Milan, Dublin to Dubai, and London to Los Angeles. Agraria is proud to be a part of Gifts that Give’s assortment of fine products, where shopping and doing good is simultaneous.
