I have always loved perfume since I was young, since both my parents used it daily. The complexity of the scent and the images it evokes, the tangible effect upon ones aura all enamored me deeply enough, that at one point I got my first distillation equipment and dove into exploring essential oils, their origin, making and use in perfume.
Over time I discovered Floral Absolutes, Resins, Flower Waxes and Concretes as further material to use in my natural perfumery.
My studies in alchemy opened up entirely new doors and perceptions regarding the art of perfume making. Not only did it open up a new plethora of ways I could create my own ingredients for my perfumery from natural herbs, flowers, spices &resins, but also how to potentiate these materials, take them to another level, in which I could turn the perfume into a true communication device between the one wearing it and the spirits of the plants and herbs that were used.
The fragrances I make differ from the synthetic perfumes you encounter in the shops. While those are aesthetically beautiful and can smell divine as well, they are dead. They are if anything filled with the intention of profit and a quick buck. They are mass-productions intended for a consumer who no longer gets to come in contact with the high-quality materials that are now limited and restricted to high-end boutiques.
These perfumes I craft are intended to be magical potions that merge and meld with the aura of the individual wearing them, energetically attuning to him and imparting its lessons subtly among the evolving notes that dance from start to finish in and out of perception.
A synthetic perfume can be quite a linear experience, while it does evolve as it progresses, it is a lot more subtle than the way a natural perfume behaves on the skin. The Journey is much more nuanced, progressing from the top notes that are bright and clear, into the depth of the heart, that is rich with the worlds above and below meeting each other. As most of the top notes fade eventually, we venture into the domain of the base, colored by the dark, earthy, spicy, powdery, woody aspects which begin to shine through and gently fade out into the end.
I will be soon releasing some of my first perfumes online on our store. The first few creations will be Eau de Parfum's which are between 20-30% perfume concentrate(Essential oils, Resins, Absolutes etc) which are then diluted in 70-80% alcohol. The price tag is around 90-100€ for a 30ml bottle, but each bottle contains 6-9ml of undiluted precious oils. To give persepctive 3-4ml of jasmine absolute costs anywhere from 50€-100€ and upwards.
I use high grade material that I source mostly through Hermitage Oils, which is a shop focused on high quality aromatheraphy grade perfume material. For the rest I do my own distillations and also create my own tinctures and alchemical preparations which I use as material.
I will be making small batches of fragrances available, but they will be unique each time. I do not repeat any one fragrance ever again.
I am limited to working with what I have on hand in terms of material, but if you enjoy my style of scent, you can always make a request for something custom made. Although I can not create something clear cut defined, but I can help create an identity through the scents. I can create a certain theme, or atmosphere.
If you have any questions or are curious about anything, do not hesitate to leave a comment, I will definitely get back to you!
