In Miami and in need of Revlon and Cetaphil? Why, there's a Walgreen's on every corner. For everything else, there's Brownes & Co.. A vaulted, multistory tribute to the apothecaries of yesteryear, Brownes & Co. offers a breezy, sweet-smelling respite of lulling ceiling fans, exposed wood and flourishing potted plants. Amid overflowing baskets and a vintage salon hair dryer chair, wooden shelves and glass display cases showcase gorgeously packaged luxury cosmetics and skin and haircare by Bumble & Bumble, Fresh, Molton Brown, Nars and Marimekko.
Beside fig-scented soaps and artisanal moisturizers that boast SPF protection, find spa-approved sundries including organic deodorants, professional tweezers, Diptyque candles, and Fitflops. Shopping for someone else? Browse luxury home deodorizers, product for baby and pet, and posh gift sets.
But the deep array of product is just the beginning. Follow an meandering, green staircase floating above the entry to an in-house hair salon, spa and yoga studio—each known for coloring, massaging, plucking, waxing and manicuring the crème de la crème of Miami society?And now you.
