Based in Scotland, REEK’s mixed-gender team has a lot to say about equality and specifically about women’s place in history and in the world today. We have a non-retouching policy and celebrate our models just as they are. We do this specifically because it is out of step with the beauty industry as a whole. Not because it’s trending, not because it’s edgy but because our bitches don’t need it.

REEK. was founded by mother/daughter team, Sara and Molly Sheridan. Only 15% of statues in the UK are raised to women and of those, most are to either royalty or fictional female characters.

History is peppered with female achievement. In Scotland, where REEK. is based we have almost a millennia of heroines from Black Agnes who defended Dunbar Castle against siege in the middle ages to Scotland’s Jacobite women who were key to Bonnie Prince Charlie’s campaign in 1745 and some of the UK’s earliest female medical pioneers - Edinburgh being for centuries one of the most advanced medical universities in Europe. Our second scent, DAMN REBEL WITCHES was inspired by a sign at a women’s march which said ‘We are the daughters of the witches you didn’t burn.’Like the heroines of the Jacobite uprisings, we are determined these women will not be forgotten and we are seeking to spread our net wider and discover more amazing women to commemorate and perfumers to work with. We are determined. Our foremothers won't be forgotten. And neither will we.
