With the idea of offering all of a woman’s fashion and beauty needs under one roof, arose the concept of Wisteria, an upscale cosmetics and accessories boutique sharing their doors with Coco Pari. Now under the new ownership of mother-daughter team, Rosemary Panicali and Alexis Trotta, this concept is brought to life in an entirely new way.

Rosemary leaves behind a high profile client, having worked as a professional makeup artist in New York City for many years; she was thrilled with the opportunity to bring her passion and in-demand skills to her home of Monmouth County. What sets Rosemary apart as an artist is having the ability to recognize the individual qualities of her client to enhance their personal style.

As for Alexis, after living on the West Coast, she fulfilled her passion for color, art, and style and became a confectionary designer. Her creativity and eye for detail lends itself to the industry in the sense that to her, “color is color and beauty is beauty” whether it is in the creation of a magnificent cake, a gorgeous face, or an elaborate display.

With Alexis’ flair for whimsical, youthful, Bohemian style, paired with Rosemary’s distinctive vision for avant-garde, opulent, and super-clean looks, comes a unique twist on an old classic…The New Wisteria. There you will discover premium skincare such as Natura Bisse, La Mer, and Kiehl’s, exclusive fragrance including Bond No. 9, Creed, and Maison Francis Kurkdjian, as well as Chantecaille and Laura Mercier makeup. Additionally, guests will enjoy an elegantly appointed beauty lounge featuring luxurious facials, expert makeup application, and brow grooming. Wisteria’s extensive selections also include high fashion jewelry, accessories, sunglasses, handbags, candles, and unique gifts.

Why travel to Manhattan with all of this at your fingertips?
