When Brianna Lipovsky founded Maison d’Etto, her line of artisanal and genderless fragrances, in 2019, it became a creative outlet—for her passion for personal connection, intimacy, and above all, horses. The brand features a range of complex, elusive, and evocative fragrances available as both candles and perfumes. Each one is inspired by one horse that—either during the gradual blossoming of a relationship, or during one tranquil afternoon—brought Lipovsky in touch with her passions. “They tell olfactive stories about a moment in time,” she says over Zoom from her home in Miami Beach, the signature glow of a Maison d’Etto candle undulating behind her. “And they express a desire for connection—to self, to nature, to others.”
