The Founder

Alicia Tsai is the founder of Aerangis. Aerangis brings true luxury as a result of a conscious commitment to handcrafted craftsmanship, high-quality ingredients, and uncompromising sustainability.

As a result, these high standards are the heartbeat behind everything the brand does. The brand thoughtfully considers every detail in order to deliver an experience that embodies its values and respects the sanctity of your home.

Working with world-renowned perfumers, Aerangis crafts each and every fragrance to either recall precious memories (whether they are ours or yours) or develop one that will evoke memories for generations.

It’s incredible to note that Aerangis’ signature scents are inspired by Alicia’s most cherished memories. These include a secret garden in Taiwan, a ranch and vineyard in upstate New York, and the spirit of New Orleans.

“My obsession with scent began when I was nine in my grandfather’s greenhouse, where he cultivated dozens of rare orchids. I spent many afternoons by his side, learning how to care for those orchids. To reward me for my interest, he gave me one of my own: an aerangis orchid with star-shaped flowers that released a beautiful scent every night during its bloom. The scent of that orchid – fresh, delicate, and soft – is forever intertwined with that cherished memory of my grandfather and the comfort I felt at his side. It is this profound connection between memory and scent that inspired me to create fragrances. After attending the Fashion Institute of Technology’s cosmetics and fragrance program and working alongside the fragrance industry’s top thought leaders in New York, I founded Aerangis, not just to relive my own cherished memories through scent, but to help others use fragrance to tell their own stories.”


The Brand Story

So how did the brand come to be? Aerangis (Air-ANG-giss) is named after the white, star-shaped orchid where Alici’s first scent memory began. As a result, she set out on a mission to use the power of fragrance to unlock forgotten memories, while immortalizing moments worth remembering. Thus, Aerangis was born.

While each candle begins with a personal recollection, the scent comes to life the minute you light the wick. This, in turn, makes it part of your own unforgettable experience.
