Ellis Brooklyn was founded in 2015 by Bee Shapiro who is a beauty columnist of New York Times and has contributed to other fashion magazines like Vogue, Glamour and more. The brand manufactures a range of body milks and scented candles. The products are a result of the mix of natural formulations with the renowned perfumer Jerome Epinette’s phthalates-free and paraben-free creations. The range of products is manufactured in small batches in New York. The name of the brand came from Shapiro’s daughter’s name.
