Our Story

Origins of Being

The word LUMADESSA originates from the words 'luminous' meaning brilliant and 'odyssey,' meaning a long, eventful or adventurous journey. This is our mantra in creating thoughtfully designed products that enhance your life experiences, bring focus to your senses, and enrich your well being.

In 2006, Artist/Designer Josh Brill created LUMADESSA as an artist print label, through which he sold his fine art prints and developed licensed products with brands, including Lacoste (sweaters), Element Skateboards (decks) and Habitat (prints). The work focused on the appreciation of wildlife and nature through his Flora Fauna series.

In 2015, LUMADESSA was put on hiatus to revitalize the brand and focus on Josh's artistic career. The artwork was brought over under his own name JOSH BRILL at joshbrill.co. On the side, Josh developed new prototypes for products to reignite the brand.


Our first product line is here, introducing LUMADESSA Home Fragrances. These are modern signature scents inspired by nature. Each fragrance is designed with the balance of aromatherapy and the character of a sophisticated perfume. Our candles are made from the all natural Non-GMO Soy Wax, 100% Cotton Wick and Phthalate-Free Fragrance Oil.
