There is a unique retail experience to be had upon entering this charming boutique situated in the neighbour friendly area of Westmount, Montreal. The WANT Apothecary recaptures the essence of a 19th century drugstore, a concept that was conceived by the co-founding Peart twins, Byron and Dexter. It is evident in the design that the approach taken by the Peart duo has been thoroughly thought over, making The Want Apothecary a place where the old and new collide. Custom designed dark oak tables display some of the modern merchandise while the herringbone flooring embodies an old-world ethos. WANT is so different, they even had a live guitar sesh with refreshments for their Spring launch!

This fashion and accessories boutique for men and women showcases classic essentials and your fair share of basic items: representing international luxury brands like recognizable Swedish labels Acne and Nudie Jeans. Parisian label Maison Kitsuné can also be found here, remaining exclusive only to WANT Apothecary in Montreal.

Most popular at WANT Apothecary is their in-house label WANT Les Essentiels De La Vie, which is mainly leather goods that are designed with quality and practicality in mind. From iPad cases to wallets and luggages, these traditional items will always remain a timeless staple.

Additions like scented candles from the French derived Astier de Villatte and a selection of grooming necessities are something that categorizes The WANT as a lifestyle shop. The shops pharmaceutical detailing allows for an interesting way to display their fine body care products from AESOP and Ursa Major’s natural skin care items.

With its deadly combination of fashion and beauty, this makes the WANT Apothecary a covetable locale for those seeking quality and hospitality in one destination.
