Welcome to The WANT Apothecary
The WANT Apothecary was conceived as a way to recapture the essence of the intimate, trusted and neighborly retail experience of a bygone era. Loosely inspired by the atmosphere of a 19th century pharmacy, this concept shop presents a unique opportunity for customers to discover a trusted resource for their style and beauty needs.
« Timelessness, quality and a modern interpretation of the past »
Nestled amongst local boutiques, fine grocers, florists and cafés on the charming Sherbrooke Street West in Montreal, this lifestyle shop has been carefully curated by Byron and Dexter Peart, designers of the leather goods brand, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie, in the fine company of business partners Mark Wiltzer and Jacqueline Gelber. Appropriately, the shop embraces the same design ethos as the celebrated accessories brand: timelessness, quality and a modern interpretation of the past.
The WANT Apothecary stocks a selection of narrowly distributed yet highly desired international fashion brands, including Acne, Filippa K, Nudie Jeans, Arc'teryx Veilance, Maison Kitsuné and, naturally, WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie. A carefully edited array of beauty and body-care products including Aesop and Astier de Villatte rounds out this selective offering.

Created together with interior designer Maria Rosa di Ioia, the shop features aged herringbone floors, custom-designed dark oak tables and Roll & Hill smoked bulb chandeliers. Natural and classic materials such as American walnut, Bianco Carrara marble and brushed copper lend a sense of tradition and warmth to the environment.
Patrons will enjoy unparalleled personalized service, and be encouraged to confidently pamper themselves with smart fashion, beauty essentials and home wares that fulfill their daily needs...and wants.
