The Story of Civet Cat Chypre: From Bus Washer to Perfumer

Perfumery is a secretive art, add to this I’m not French, uneducated and from the wrong side of the tracks. But I am is a curios mind. Thus, I am completely and utterly self taught.

When I first started mixing essential oils the only information I could gather was from the public domain. Basically turn of the century, French and German apothecary books. Many had recipes for headaches, sore feet or dry cough. But low and behold they also included vintage cologne formulas!

Formulas that use now-restricted resins, essential oils, tinctures and animal musks. So there I was, for 4 years I washed washed busses at night, I dug holes and lifted stones on the weekend and I studied perfumery weekdays. 

Civet Cat Chypre expresses my beginnings. It place thick, rich materials, animal musks and tinctures in her body. She expresses my respect for Vintage French Perfumery.

    ALL 50ML MELEG PERFUMES ARE SECURED IN A WOODEN BOX

    THIS WOODEN BOX REPRESENTS AN APPLE BIN 

    I managed my families "Meleg's Orchard," in a small south Ontario town until I was 25. The orchard started with Sam Meleg, a Slovak from the Provence of Vojvodina, former Kingdom of Serbia of the Austro Hungarian Empire. My work ethic, self deprecating humour and stubborn nature is reflective of my Slovak, peasant roots.

    Here my cousins are laying crops into the "apple bin." My wooden perfume box is meant to represent apple bins. Be they rose, vetiver or jasmine farmers. Be they from India, Mexico, Canada or Iran - Meleg Perfumes celebrates farmers and artisans of all nations.
