Our Story

A combination of “Apothecary + Utopia”, APOTHIA evokes images of serenity and beauty with a modern sensibility.


Ron Robinson, founder of APOTHIA, the exclusive Los Angeles Apothecary has been discovering and cultivating new brands for over three decades. With the original RON ROBINSON store located since 1978 at Melrose Ave’s ivy covered Fred Segal and the new RON ROBINSON Flagship store in Santa Monica, the APOTHIA boutique within his stores is famous for attracting a constant stream of A list celebrities, global trendsetters and most importantly our many customers who over the years desire the best in beauty.


The boutique’s sharply edited assortment boasts some of the most exclusive and sought after products in the world along with debuting choice finds that have received Ron’s discriminating seal of approval.


Ron Robinson found inspiration for his own collection and named it APOTHIA, from the fashion, progressive culture, energy and sunshine of Los Angeles, the city that has been a vital part of his life. Synonymous with beauty, design and style, APOTHIA offers aromatic candles, diffusers, hand and body care and eau de parfums - blending art, luxurious ingredients and world-class craftsmanship.
