This blog is a digital magazine of my creative works:- visual, literary and fragrant.
As an independent perfumer, my motivation to compose natural perfume has been entirely shaped by an intense fascination with classic masterpieces of exemplary French perfume. I simply set out to discover if – and how – I could craft my own luxurious collection of luminous wonders within the constraints of a totally natural palette.
The artisanal blending of fragrant wonders such as pure essential oils and absolutes harvested from Rose, Jasmine, Lotus, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Frankincense, Oud and Vetiver is an ancient and mysterious art that has always fascinated me.
Each batch of perfume is produced in limited quantities (1.5 – 5 litres) due to the high cost and limited availability of many botanical perfumery ingredients. In addition, the ethos of my art is centred in creating fine fragrances that resonate with individuals and are not produced for the mass-market.
Nothing that I make is fruity-fresh or sugary, powder-puff. My haute perfumes are intense. Each fragrance reflects exceptional value as it is exclusively hand-made using very generous amounts of rare and costly ingredients; apparent in the longevity and sillage.
Each brew is also defined by harvest conditions which can produce spectacular yields of incredible material in one year and subsequently suffer from adverse weather conditions in following years. That’s nature… ever-changing and infinitely moody.
Written works included on this blog offer some philosophical context to my natural perfume creations.
