La Botica ( meaning; Spanish variation of farmacia/chemists shop) is a concept brand, luxury candle studio and chill-wear brand located in New York City. Bringing together modern ritual and la cultura. Established as a curated showroom by artist, Dawn Marie West, La Botica encapsulates edits that evoke the dreamy, effortless and undone. Created to house the possibilities for a chill, muse-worthy identity and lifestyle.
“La Botica was created as my dream sanctuary, a farmacia of my own self-care. Working in photography and the museum industries, I rarely committed to my self-care but as an artist, I would use my art as my sanctuary - and as a result, I decided to lend my art to a new medium; fragrance and experience. The delicate things that always elevated me, perfumed candles, bodysuits, ethical palo santo, and a bachata playlist was my ritual. Combining my experience in art direction and luxury perfumery with my Black and Afro-Dominican culture, La Botica took on it’s own identity as a chill space to escape and a collection of sustainable luxury pieces, for your own sanctuary.”
