Aquiesse Home Fragrance Collection
For over 15 years, Aquiesse has been known for their affordable luxury home fragrance collection (candles and diffusers). In 2017, Mike Horn, the CEO of Aquiesse, hired Erna Blooms to be his Co-Creative Director to redefine the brand as lifestyle brand based on mindfulness and more innovative messaging and edgier packaging design. Together with Mike, who is also a creative genius with great taste, we created the new Aquiesse logo with the vintage illustration style A, circular border and trident (represents the balanced connection between the past, the presence and the future) and refining their iconic seahorses to showcase Aquiesse's new company philosophical direction to look farther into the future in creating positive impact in people's daily life. We also created many packaging concepts for various collections that will roll out starting in 2021. During one of our development, called Scents of Adventure, we took a helicopter ride for inspirations. How awesome is that?
We collaborated with Effie Tanji from Bodewell Living on some of these packaging concepts. We love our work and clients.

I've been working with Erna for over 3 years. As we began working together, I've noticed that she is very creative and extremely thorough. Her work ethic is second to none, and she put her heart and soul into what she does. One of the most important talents she possesses is her ability to really pull my vision out of me when I’m not even clear with it. This helps bring me clarity.
I also love the person that she is. It feels nice to have her in my circle and those people are hard to come by!
