MAKANA means "gift" in Hawaiian. Traditional Hawaiian beliefs contend that people, animals, and the land do not exist independently of one another. Rather, all of our destinies are intertwined.

At MAKANA, we believe in the beauty of living well, clean design and creating fresh, botanical-based products. Our products are not manufactured by the thousands in a factory, but are hand-poured and hand-blended in small batches in-house in our California studio using artisanal techniques.

We believe in a clean, minimal, uncomplicated ingredient list and process. Our methods and philosophy are rooted in both the traditional and modern. We strive to live each day filled with balance within ourselves, harmony with each other and respect for the land and sea. This way of life is based on ALOHA.

We believe in slowing down, unplugging and recognizing the beauty in the moment. Fragrance creates new memories with each new experience. But more importantly, fragrance evokes stored memories, transporting us thousands of miles in an instant - to a person, to a place, to a moment frozen in time, reliving an experience that may have seemed to have been gone forever.

This is our Makana to you - the gift of fragrance.
