With smell being the strongest sense tied to memory, fragrance is the most powerful way to surround yourself with familiar moods and memories while creating new ones. We use sustainable ingredients and custom scents rooted in our Caribbean heritage, giving you the chance to connect to culture or disconnect from the world.

Our Story

Named after my late grandmother Ruth, a Jamaican-born seamstress who lived to make things beautiful, and my niece Gem, who's inherited her creative spirit, Ruth & Gem was born out of curiosity and a desire for scents that felt more intimate than the resort drink-inspired offerings of bigger brands.

Launched in 2021, it became a creative outlet for my family and we're proud to share our products; from our home to yours.
