Antica Farmacista Home Ambiance Perfume in Ala Moana $58 Nordstrom

Exclusively made for Nordstrom and even more exclusively made for the new Nordstrom at Ala Moana Center, this home fragrance scent from Antica Farmacista is a floral experience that combines night blooming jasmine, plumeria, tuberose and gardenia—all of the best smelling flowers here in Hawaii. Antica Farmacista made a Hawaii-inspired fragrance and named it after our local shopping mall - the only place you can get it. Home Ambiance Perfume is the signature product of their collection. Using white birch reeds placed in the apothecary-style glass bottles, the scent easily permeates the air. Get one for your home and a few for your friends—it’s a great gift giving idea.


Alternative Apparel at Urbanz Toys

Kaimuki’s Urbanz Toys is known for their selection of designer art vinyl and plush toys. Need a Dunny? In addition to toys and collectibles, Urbanz Toys also carries items from the clothing line, Alternative Apparel. SMART loves the burnout tees (most comfy t-shirt). Urbanz Toys features a variety of t-shirts, short sleeves and tanks. Alternative Apparel is new to the store; it’s just been a few months since they’ve had the brand. “I like the fit and I like that they’re going green with organic cotton, and it’s eco-friendly,” says co-owner Kathy Bachlott. Also likes that people can customize their shirts and tanks with art. It’s like a wearable canvas—plus it’s stylish, comfortable and eco-friendy, too.
