Downtown consignment shop launches a perfume

The "Verge" fragrance is a collaboration between Verge and Global Essence

Clothes, shoes and jewelry: Now Downtown Albany consignment shop Verge is branching out on a new venture.

The store just launched its own fragrance, called "Verge," made with 100 percent natural oils. Owner Jessica Blair partnered together with another Downtown Albany store, Global Essence, to create the perfume.

"We got together and mixed the perfume up the way we thought it would work the best for what I like and her taste as well, and this is what we've come up with," Blair, who describes the fragrance as "earthy."

She says they are just testing small bottles of the perfume for now. Bottle prices range from $2 up to $5. Don't live in Albany? "Verge" is available for purchase online through the store's Facebook page.
