Custom perfumery and all natural apothecary of beauty, Citrine Natural Beauty Bar will be joining an impressive lineup of elite boutiques and local retailers at the Biltmore Fashion Park’s new UNION concept with a grand opening on November 8.
As you sip on a glass of champagne or tea, step up to the perfumery bar and custom blend your very own signature scent, choosing from exotic essential oils from around the globe, like French lavender, sandalwood and cocoa. As a custom perfumery bar, Citrine is the first of its kind to hit the Valley.

For those who only pamper themselves with the best, Citrine will also feature all natural beauty and makeup products, organic skincare, and custom fragrances, such as Jane Iredale, Patyka, Per-fekt and REN.
After working in the makeup industry for 13 years, Citrine’s owner, Melissa Lenberg, 30, decided to use her knowledge and love for natural beauty products by turning her expertise into a business. True to her entrepreneurial spirit, she aims to use only the highest quality natural ingredients.
“I want to teach women you can be natural but glamorous at the same time,” she said. “You can use essential oils and natural products and still be done up like Marilyn Monroe if you want. The skin is the largest organ in our body and we should pamper it with the greatness it deserves.”
The 7,200-square-foot Biltmore UNION space will be subdivided to accommodate 18 small retailers as a locally-owned independent concept.
