Ann Onusko, Small Business Owner and Perfumsita
Ann Onusko was a floral designer with a passion for perfume who decided to share her love for fragrance with the people of Lakewood, an up and coming neighborhood seven miles from downtown Cleveland, Ohio. Last month, Ann opened Indigo Perfumery, a 950 square foot shop that specializes in hard-to-find niche and indie brands.We talked to Ann about her decision to take a leap of faith in a difficult economy and open her own Fragrance Boutique: “Starting a small business is craziness, some would say. You have to possess a total passion for what you are doing, a steady belief in your goal and purpose. The most common question I am asked when I meet customers for the first time is ‘Why?’ – a perfume shop? -niche perfumes? –here in Cleveland?
Inside Indigo Perfumery
I’ve always loved perfume. Catching the waft of a lovely fragrance as someone walks by intrigues me. It tells me that they care, that they took the time to groom and take pride in themselves. I wanted to bring to my home city a place of discovery for those interested in making that intimate choice of what fragrance to wear. Indigo Perfumery offers that choice to its discerning customers- to discover and savor the process of choosing a fragrance in order to find the scent that moves them most. With the element of exclusivity that the independent perfumers offer, our customers can enjoy the experience of seeking out rare brands.”
