Travel Spotlight: Take A Tour Through Williamsburg, Brooklyn Posted on 1 Apr 00:30 , 0 comments

[caption id="attachment_2548" align="alignright" width="300"]Brooklyn is home Brooklyn is our home[/caption] Ah, Brooklyn…our home sweet home. Brooklyn is never short of adventure - especially in our neck of the woods, known as the Williamsburg area. Williamsburg is one of Brooklyn’s most fun and exciting neighborhoods. This semi-industrial area is mixed with a diverse demographic, attracting the young (and the not so young), as well as the Hasidic and Latino communities. Williamsburg is known for its lively arts, music, neo-rustic bars, and boutiques. Not to mention, the ‘Burg is a large gastronomical hub with a strong DIY spirit. Of course, the ‘Burg can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t know where to go. That’s why we've compiled a list of some of the top guided walking, bicycling, and food tours that will show you all you need to know about the Williamsburg area.   Made In Brooklyn Tours Made in Brooklyn Tours are guided walking tours with a “Made in Brooklyn” theme that tell the story of Brooklyn’s industrial revolution and revival. Dom Gervasi, owner and producer of Made in Brooklyn Tours, guides visitors through the Williamsburg area, giving them an inside look on the changing landscape and local manufacturing and arts movement. The stars of Made in Brooklyn Tours are the makers, as tours celebrate the creativity, ingenuity, and entrepreneurial spirit of glassmakers, metalsmiths, culinary artisans,  and woodworkers who make wine, chocolate, bicycles, furniture, ceramics and more.   Get Up & Ride Tours [getty src="91113794?et=bSE_Bu1FQ_RGNhG1jokGyA&sig=q72nHf2Gpzya6kYt4lDNWxr0CKo-JUJ4jEEYGgpufRo=" width="506" height="388"] Get Up and Ride organizes fun and engaging bicycling tours through Brooklyn’s most charismatic and unique waterfront neighborhoods. The tour offers Dutch-style urban bicycles that are beautifully designed, lightweight, and reliable. Cyclists ride along at a relaxed pace and are fully equipped with headsets and walkie-talkies so that you can stay tuned into the tour during the entire ride.  The tour starts at McCarren Park and makes its way through Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn, Broo klyn Heights, and DUMBO. The tour showcases local artists, beautiful parks, fascinating history, and great food.   Urban Oyster Tours [getty src="139151575?et=JtVgCtRAQvNt0sc3oS7O1A&sig=7y4k_zbAbrRHVe296HU7VzEhjwiEw8doB6YGU47fkqY=" width="338" height="555"] Urban Oyster Tours offer a wide variety of neighborhood and culinary themed tours that explore the people and places that make Brooklyn neighborhoods vibrant, diverse, and sustainable. Whether you select the Brewed in Brooklyn Tour, the Neighborhood Eats Tour, the Brewery, Winery, and Distillery Tour, or any of the other tour selections, you won’t be dissatisfied.  Urban Oyster Tours are enjoyed by both native New Yorkers and tourists alike. During the tour, you’ll explore the growing scene of cafés and restaurants specializing in artisanal foods, or learn about the finer side of craft beers and bars while discovering the finest places to have a pint in New York.  Urban Oyster tours seek to promote a deeper sense of appreciation for Brooklyn’s history, diversity, local businesses, and sustainability in communities.   So if you are looking for a place to soak up some creative energy and hipster-esque ideals, then Brooklyn and the Williamsburg neighborhood are the best areas to explore in New York City. Whether you are interested in discovering the rich industrial history with a guided walking tour, engaging in a leisurely bike ride along scenic waterfronts, or indulging in culinary delights and refreshing ales, these tours will inspire and amaze even the most experienced New York traveler. Don't forget to stop by our store on Kent Ave - right by the East River - to try our very own Brooklyn scents!

Travel Spotlight: Exploring Georgetown - Washington D.C. Posted on 19 Mar 11:00 , 0 comments

[getty src="108139237?et=9PptL-kbR9N6XXMxNGqYbg&sig=Lb9mD0eAW-Co1qDawtBPy9shhs2dHMvwNyc-DIPcrBg=" width="477" height="408"]If you are familiar with Nomaterra, you will know that we absolutely adore D.C. Our fragrance, D.C. Cherry Blossom, captures the essence of this prominent town through indigenous scents of cherry blossom, citrus, nutmeg, warm vanilla, and other delightful notes. While the Nomaterra travel spray can whisk you away to D.C. at a moment’s notice, making you feel like you are right there in the city, nothing beats an actual trip to our nation’s capital – specifically to the quaint and historical neighborhood of Georgetown, located just north of the Potomac River. Georgetown is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington D.C. and is a vibrant community filled with upscale shopping, restaurants, and bars that line the pathway of cobblestone streets.   Shopping For those fierce and forward-thinking fashionistas, you must stop by Hu’s Wear - a two-story design showroom that features high-end lines such as Alexander McQueen, Proenza Schoulder, and new-comer Sumo. Other must-see boutiques include Relish, for those whose style leans toward a more modern elegance; Urban Chic, a shop that draws in the area’s young socialites; and Sangree, perfect for the career woman who’s fashion sense exhibits a more worldly and eclectic flair.   Restaurants Georgetown encompasses many fine restaurants that offer an array of cuisines from contemporary American to Mediterranean, to French or Latin American fare. One of our favorites is the 1789 Restaurant.  This historic restaurant is located on a quiet street in Georgetown and is situated in a renovated Federal period house in residential Georgetown. 1789 Restaurant features the charm of a country inn, and it is known as one of the best restaurants in the nation’s capital. Their menu highlights the flavors of the region’s best ingredients and often changes with the season. Other lavish restaurants to visit include Café Milano, a Washington hot spot for the affluent and influential; and for those who appreciate sustainable agriculture, Farmers, Fishers, Bakers focuses on fresh ingredients with an unbeatable location right on the Georgetown waterfront. Nightlife Of course, no trip is complete without experiencing the city’s bustling nightlife. L2 Lounge is an upscale evening establishment located in the central courtyard of Cady’s Alley. The ambiance and distinguished quality appeals to the sophisticated, internationally minded, social established, and artistically inclined strata who enjoy the finer things in life. For a more casual and laid-back experience, Sequoia Restaurant offers stunning views of the Georgetown Waterfront, a lively atmosphere, and is a popular spot to enjoy outdoor dining during the warmer months of the year.  Sequoia is not only a fun place to have a drinks and light fare while hanging out with friends, but it is also the perfect spot for people watching. Sightseeing Obviously, Georgetown is rich and full of history. If you have some time, we recommend taking a sightseeing tour to learn about the history of the Georgetown neighborhood. Georgetown offers an assortment of tours such as walking tours, food tours, celebrity tours, and more. So whether you are strolling along the C & O Canal, wandering in historic Georgetown homes (such as the Old Stone House, Dumbarton House, or Tudor Place Historic House and Garden), kayaking the Potomac River, or relaxing in Georgetown Waterfront Park, Georgetown will never leave one’s heart feeling unfulfilled.

Nomaterra Fragrances finds love for DC Couple

In light of this chilly Valentine's Day weekend, we learned something recently that might warm your hearts. A few weekends ago, we were invited to a friend's birthday party in NYC. We met a couple there, Nurah and Courtney, who have been dating for a little over a year now. Turns out that they had met each other at Nomaterra's Washington, D.C. Launch Party back in January of 2013!! They met there, started dating, and fell in love! It was so nice to reconnect with them, and happy to know that Nomaterra brought them together!! (Their favorite fragrance...DC Cherry Blossom of course!)
