Parchment Studios (formerly Latherati) fragrances and nail polish are inspired by classic literature, poetry and art; stories captured in scent and color. Paying homage to the great classics, my fragrance blends are interpretations of strong characters or unforgettable settings that transport you to the moors of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights or the Isle of Skye in Virginia Woolf’s To the Lighthouse.
Wrapping yourself in a scent you love allows you to project your own personal portrait and create a powerful extension of your personality. Like silent flirting, perfume gives a subtle hint to who you are without speaking a word.
Julie Grogan is the owner/designer/maker of the Parchment (formerly Latherati) brand that includes perfume, lotion, soap, and nail polish. Influenced by classic literature, her treasured library is being translated as scent and color, one book at a time, to help you embrace and celebrate your own strong character.
All products are handcrafted in small batches, with high quality ingredients. Vegan, cruelty-free, phthalate & paraben free. Nail polishes are non-toxic and 10-free.
I live & work in a little house by the lake in a small Central New York town. I have a passion for old books, vintage treasures, beautiful scents, & music. My husband (drums/guitar) and my wallflower self (piano/accordion/vocals) are wanna-be rock stars and play locally in a small band with musician friends. I travel as much as I can, drink more coffee than I should, and own too many cardigans.
