Terre Gaillarde (formerly 8-12) is a concept shop offering scents from origins near & far, new & familiar. Our curation of perfume, candles, incense, & bath immersions centers aromatic artists inspired by their sense of home and heritage. Like us, we hope you enjoy their creations as bookends to your days and for life's most precious moments.
We aspire to connect scents that broaden and reclaim olfactory narratives with people seeking to enhance the joy, peace, & reverence in the spaces they occupy.
We're inspired by the time and space when our minds aren’t inundated with stressors. This deep state of relaxation that ushers in the start and close of our days is when we engage in the most sensuous rituals. Among them is the use of scent. Perfume, candles, incense, and bath immersions are often used as bookends to our days and life’s most precious moments. This intimacy of home--both the physical abode and state of being--is what inspires our brand, and it is our hope that you feel seen, curious, and inspired.
“Terre means land in French and the word gaillard(e) (both as adjective and noun) means someone full of life and drive, strong, robust; it was a good name for a maroon refuge.” - Sylviane Diouf
