Patrick Kelly, a skincare enthusiast based in Los Angeles, is the alchemist behind Sigil, a brand known for its natural, gender-fluid fine fragrance, beauty, and lifestyle products.
In this volume of BAINA Bathe, Patrick shares his intimate bathing rituals, embracing a natural and intuitive approach. For him, bathing is a cherished opportunity for self-reflection and rejuvenation.
"I choose a lake over the ocean, tucked away in a mountain, surrounded by trees, no distractions, just tranquil quiet and a lofty, hardback novel."
"When I bathe, I take a gua sha tool, a face mask, and a Ghia spritz."
"There’s no replacement for the tactility of fingertips. You can intuitively grasp what the skin needs through touch. A gentle massage to boost bloodflow. An exploration of the surface of the face to discover areas of congestion and debris. Think of your hands as the original beauty tool. They cost nothing to use and connect you back to yourself."
- Patrick Kelly
"When faced with a challenge I remind myself that it is a gift. It brings growth, broadened perspective, and helps build grit."
"I take inspiration from; David Lynch. Austin Osman Spare. Keith Haring. Kylie Minogue. We go for range here."
"I am currently manifesting; love, calm, rest, and creative exploration."
- Patrick Kelly
"Balance begins with frequent, gentle inventory. Check in regularly with what’s resonating (and not) in your life so you can trim out what’s not working, focusing instead on areas for expansion toward our purpose."
