Farmer To Perfumer
Curiosity & Persistence
I'm not French or from a wealthy family, nor did I major in chemistry. But I did wash busses to support my self-study into perfumery. You need to succeed in life with curiosity, persistence and a good attitude!
what people say
Sehr hochwertige Düfte. Es sind richtige Kunstwerke, nur das mit dem echten Civet macht mir persönlich nach wie vor Probleme. Das muss jeder für sich entscheiden.Meine persönlichen Favoriten sind Metallic Rose, Mushin, sowie die beiden Tabakdüfte.Gabi
I can't wait to be able to afford full bottles of at least two of these. They are all such high quality, the samples were large enough for five or six wears apiece and a few last a whole day and night on my skin with a light application. But Madeline and Vienna 1900 are easily in my top 5 frags of all time. Madeline especially is poetic, addictive and persistant... I want to smell like this forever!Peak
Matthew crafts fragrances with care, attention and artistry. The samples I purchased definitely left me wanting more. His scents are bold and made with the highest quality ingredients. Well blended and nuanced throughout their entire wearing.Clay
Artisan perfumery at its finest.
I am happy that there are artists still doing this for connoisseurs. :-)
Outstanding projection and longevity. Near 24 hours. On opening you get the immediate vibe of the frankincense. On dry down the frankincense subsides and the beautiful tobacco fragrance emerges. Not a smoky tobacco fragrance but a beautiful fragrance from the fresh tobacco leaves. Overall very smooth and pleasing. Beautiful creation by Matthew.
This is the third fragrance that I have from Matthew, Golden Gai is Toxic love, Birch Tar is seriously axe-wielding and Mushin is Zen-Divine! I'm the only Samurai walking around in my city, just call me Miyamoto Mushin.
Great fragrance- absolutely love it. Not too many available nowadays like this. Arrived in good time and in fantastic packaging, complete with a personal handwritten note of appreciation.
Many thanks to you Matthew 😀
A very well made, well balanced fragrance if you like classic guerlain and Chanel then you’ll like this, the dry down is where this sings which is good as it was still a soft skin scent 24 hours later
I was so amazed with this beautiful perfume. I really do not know how to describe it. It is so deep, dark, mysterious, elegant and so sexy. Thank you thank you thank you for such beautiful creation.
