& THE STORIES BEHIND THEM
A unisex fragrance centered by traditional vanilla is highlighted by the purest form of jasmine. The mid note in this gem is a combination of two powdery and distinct florals - our heliotrope and the ever-so sought after Blue Rose - making this the ultimate twist on traditional contemporary. It reminds me of the time I was in Rome in the city square to see the World Cup. A can't miss.
Our most layered designer perfume to-date, this powdery floral Egyptian musk has four notes in the base alone: From a soft white musk to a crisp vanilla and tonka bean blend makes this feel like you’re running through an enchanted forest. Three narcotic middle notes - a range of three types of roses, from Damask to Woods give you a sense of the mystical and last but never least, the two notes that top it off - bergamot and a clean, crisp geranium blend that upon touch seem personalized just for you. This ladies number pays homage to a trip to the Dominican Republic I went to as a child, where my sister and I gave all our money to children running around us happy & barefoot. It's like finding your own fountain in the lushest foliage possible.
This light feminine perfume is based on a trip we took to Santorini, and has a dry sweet grass anchor with a unique herbal lilac that makes it feel like the sweet breezes there, and with blackberry at the top, it's truly picturesque.
With orange flower and rosewood as its anchor, this perfume for men that I'm inclined to label as unisex because I tend towards masculine scents, is part of our unisex Incensed At It All collection. You can layer it nicely with the other two fragrances in this three-part set, EPITAPHIC and ACHAEAN or wear it alone. The centermost notes are a standout blend of saffron and pure lilies of the valley. Neroli and le muguet serve as the dark green undertone, to make this redolence one part Twin Peaks and another part Florence as in Italy.
Once upon a time, there was a girl who won prom queen twice and she wore a base of cedar-like citrus, layered on top a blend of Egyptian wood for a spicy, fresh effect. The light veil of a top note composed of pure grape essence is what wearing both the crown and sash smells like in this ladies fragrance. *Please note, in regards to our Strand Set, this scent but with a different formulation specifically for hair shine, the name is ALUMNAE.
Part of our SANCTIONED Trio of Leave-In-Conditioners, formulated to keep your hair super soft, with less notes - and intended so - because the scent stays so long and these hit just right. Not overwhelming but powerful in a know thyself and what you stand for way. And that's both InStyle and outta sight. For this one in particular, we have a black currant and violent blend with a white currant undertone.
Refer to CURANT above to discover what our entire Trio is all about. This fragrance in particular is a Four Seasons sanctioned lemon verbena, for an Autograph hotel type of gal due to its luxuriant acacia honey and centuries in the making french almond.
Reminiscent of a soft suede leather made buttery with mid notes of peonies and geranium, and top notes of dew-like florals, the base of leather makes it a classic fragrance for women who like to see hard work pay off and stay independent.
The perfect scent to evoke kicking back on your leather sofa while smoking an exotic cigar that’s both warm and spicy. In this masculine fragrance, the base is a blend of orange neroli and oud tobacco with mid notes of patchouli and cedarwood topped off with light vetiver that makes it one of a kind.
With a base that's rich with creamy floral type coconut and a balsam note to round it out, along with a pearl-size rose touch topped off with an elegant exotic fruit blend of earl grey tea & raspberry, this is what I'd wear to get what I want.
This hair perfume/hair gloss hybrid, what I'd tell my friends on the fly as 'baby powder meets violet musk' to describe it, is otherwise known as FORMULAIC to professionals. It is made in mind for women with coarse hair, is riveted with iris and musk rose for the base. Casa blanca lilies and the ceremonial white orchid bring it together in the middle and the rare night Cereus to complete this queen of the night. What inspired it was a girl asking me what I was wearing on an airplane, on my way to Big Sky, and the feeling I got by telling her how I layered it to make it work. This number next levels it, because I compete with myself and that my friends know is genuine affection.
This static Juliet rose perfume is for the girls who are hard to get. And to the ones in the know, we could laugh about how the hottest girl in the room is making some guy's life miserable out there. Add a crosscurrent of Katsura and Sky Jacket and you have the most immaculate scent of them all. This is for the women who own that it takes one to know one.
The base in this unisex fragrance is composed of a combination of a dark cherry ambrette incense-type of ambrosia with a mid-note blend of narcissus and mandarin. To top it all off is blackcurrant which reminds me of the gardens my jewelry designer aunt and I would walk by on the way to our favorite mall in Taipei, where elegant men in suits and red gloves would take us to any floor we wanted to shop.
A deep plum currant and cassis base mix in this women's perfume are topped off with a neroli mid-note and an orange flower top note to bring me back to Kyoto, where hospitality was easy to find, and the tatami mats were a luxury where we stayed. It's the anti-red eye.
Make no qualms about it, our signature scent with patchouli enfolded into cashmere wood, a touch of Turkish coffee, and oceanic white ginger, makes this unisex cologne one worth repeating.
An Ojai-like unisex fragrance secured by a deep firwood and blackwood base blend, and an all-time fave of mine, violet, to center it all and a hint of blackberry. This scent is unique in that the mid note acts as the base in terms of ratio. A cannot miss.
An unshakable base of vetiver with undertones of oud and tobacco, mid notes of tuberose and fig, along with a top note of balsamic wood makes this sensual, subtle and deep perfume for women a standout. It reminds me of the colorful windmills in Holland and how the composition smelled in the hotel lobby.
Four layers of greenery from moss to ivy on top of bergamot musk, along with an unexpected undeniable masculine top note of black licorice make you feel like you just bought every meter of the building your penthouse apartment was in, and now you’re on the roof as the owner of the entire building with your name on it.
A part of our much-talked about SANCTIONED - and overheard by committed gossipers at high-end luxury salons - this hair perfume out rules users of Morrocan in every way, and you'd have to try it to find out. Ingrained with Cedarwood and a tinge of Juniper, you have the connotation of them all with a connotation of the cleanest type of Redolance.
A woodsy floral with a hint of feminine cologne and a musky edge, Inquest pays homage to my childhood in Taiwan and the moments I looked into the ocean with my grandmother by my side thinking to myself, “I am going to make something for myself and I know I can.” It was and now remains a beautiful olfactory type memory with two nautical notes serving as the anchor, a middle layer comprised of Bulgarian rose and a pure creamy white floral, and a rare type of grapefruit as the top note.
A dry scent is very different than what is typically thought of as a typical singular perfume note. The base of this select fragrance is a dry vanilla and dry musk mix and the effect is a must-try. With a resin bronze mid-note and a bright floral to top it off, it’s a definite bronze age meets gilded age combination that can’t be duplicated.
We flip the script on myopic by making it serve double duty as it infuses your hair with gloss, primer, and the most subtle neroli, as if Cleopatra herself dusted it on you beforehand. Topped off with jasmine, you can skip the dab behind your ears. The perfect third date fragrance for women because whether it's to seal the deal or to break up, he'll never truly get over you.
This particular parfum - comprised of six notes - is based off a character who formed her own type of currency, and was the heroine in bedtime stories I'd tell my daughter at night when she was younger. The best type of heirloom, with two base notes - a blend of chypre and tobacco - mid notes of neroli and almond, and topped off with a cologne-based fig makes this a scent of mystery.
Mossy overtones over a Palo Santo combined with Dulce De Leche cohere with a deep honey verbena at the median and a subtle ivy at the crest. The sovereign that makes this unique and dark unisex retake is an ombre mainstay of leather and thundercloud flowering plum. This uppermost imparts Argentina, staying in the center of the city with bakeries on each corner, and walking the entire city collecting stationery.
This one's on the female side of unisex. All of our fine fragrances are intense but never overbearing. The kind you spray on the back of your neck once and only the people you want to remember you do, but it definitely stays in all the right ways. An earthy base, a dab of a clean crisp floral and warmed up again with a zesty green tea on top. The light side of earthy some say. It smells like entering Big Sur's Post Ranch Inn.
This mens fragrance is the perfect complement to our top-ranking companion Elusory in our FORMULAIC collection because it has the same powdery base done in a masculine way. Blue Lotus and an infusion of white ginger make it taut, Gorse flower and Miami Rose cinch it with an overall coconut finish and intoxicating Alyssum redefines any kind of lower English Fields.
A deep leather plum-based cologne moored with a dark mauve lilac mid-note and a distinct suede-like pink pepper & blackwood top note makes this unisex/masculine fragrance hard to resist. In the IRED BY IT ALL collection, you can assume we always use our signature primer - but in OFFCOURSE, the additional velvety enhancer's radiating effect can only be experienced to be described without presumption. It reminds me of a trip to San Miguel when we went horseback riding and there wasn't a fence in sight.
This male yet unisex constant starts off with costus for a smokey earth tone, layered with juniper for the base. Powdery at the same time with honeysuckle combined with pink pepper. The top layers, from bergamot to tuberose and vanilla woods with masculine saffron are the most complex in this go-to. Immediately I'm reminded of how good the private dining rooms smelled in the French Asian Fusion restaurant my great aunt owns in downtown Houston and takes painstakingly care of.
Our lightest scent of them all, for the ladies, leaves you refreshed even in the most humid of all NYC days. It repels away the bad vibes with a two-toned base consisting of an amber naval blend, another two-toned exotic floral Lily of the Valley middle layer that's surprisingly light in it's artistic mix. Gives you that refined sophistry and pastoral to keep your cool in the middle of a crowd, while the top note of our modern altar cologne makes this the crisp inner lining of your favorite jacket.
A soft feminine perfume, yet with our signature warm is why this scent starts with a sweet mauve rattan, with lilac and a subtle brown sugar to remind me of visiting my sister in her spacey Chelsea loft, strolling about and hitting up my favorite walk-ins like Kidrobot.
Two heady base notes - a rich jasmine mixed with an heirloom tea rose - ground this sensual number, and gives what's been called in-house "The Best Perfume for Women". A deep rose that lingers, and the pure rose mid note layer we expertly craft and blend with the elegant and all-mighty Santalum. The way we mix it up adds the perfect lush sandalwood finish and dimension. Perfect for the eccentricities that lie within us all. Makes the perfect gift, the kind that's so good you'd buy one for yourself & one to give.
Take mahogany, and birch wood for a burgundy base, a deep undertone of orchid, and top notes of teak and you have our most masculine soulful realm of a fragrance. From the lodge in Bali stayed-in to the temples we ran in and out of, to the burgundy wood that surrounded us, this opulent scent conjures it all.
The classic men's fragrance made rich with a cologne-like white musk as the base, and one woodsy mid-note combined to give it a rich blue-blood finish that if left on garments, girlfriends may steal it. Consider yourself warned.
Three types of cedar wood - Brazilian rosewood and pure essence from the absolute Champaca flower are equidistant in this men's cologne, while black tea fastens it. The summit of it all is a combination of lotus and aloeswood, and is heavenly under the Michelia tree. Tuberose and Nag Champa commemorate it all, while hiking in remote parts of Ecuador.
Part of the IRED BY IT ALL collection, this number's base is a combination of a hint of a deep cherry musk and my personal favorite scent almond. Mid notes of caramel coffee and Egyptian mandarin leaves take me right back to Hong Kong, strolling around the city and watching in wonderment as residents walked their birds in the morning.
A definite favorite of mine because one note in the base is a dedication to my daughter, aka 'The Bean'. This one has two base notes that are vanilla gourmand and floral, three middle notes of an ocean-like powder, with two fresh top notes of pear & grapefruit, and an additional hint of cologne to make this both fresh, fine, and grounded. It reminds me of the time I skipped out of the Louvre and went sailing instead.
This scent is part sage and part cream-like clove for the base. Add to that mid notes of jasmine and it takes me to the island of Ixtapa, with uncrowded beaches and secret gardens galore. Part of the IRED BY IT ALL trio.
This stateside deep vetiver men's cologne so good I consider it unisex, has a fortified base of pine and mid notes of exotic balsam wood and neroli. That topped off with honey fig, fir and a treemoss blend brings me back to how it smelled snowboarding down the mountains in Breckenridge.
A deep incense-type honey fragrance for women, with a base of tonka and balsam, mid notes of dark cherry and a light splash of pomegranate to top it off - this scent dabbed behind the ears reminds me of one of my favorite east side haunts in Austin, Shangri-La, with a patio full of large rocks where we could laugh at it all without authority.
