    Maybe you should create a vendor section where you can advertise your stuff.

    This is the vendor section... it has been split into two. One called the Artisanal Oud Guild and this for perfumers. I think the section was not labelled properly hence the confusion. It has now been renamed Artisanal Perfumers, instead of Artisanal Perfumery. Just bear with us as we are evolving into a different operation slowly and this is a step in that direction.

    Matt in several of your posts on Instagram it would seem that synthetics make up quite a large portion of your compositions. Is this something that we can see a change with in the future?

    for example on one post you stated that synthetic blenders can make up to 70% of your compositions. Do you feel that you’re being called to a more natural and eastern style of perfumery?

    Well, I should clarify something.
    I actually don't use many synthetics.
    One smell of my perfumes, you will immediately realize this.
    Most of my perfumes are around 80% natural.

    My "Canadian Gentleman," is actually 95% natural.
    But I do use white musks to make all the naturals in my perfumes more diffusive.

    *However, you are very correct about my post.
    Yes, I did say that blenders can make up 70% of a modern perfume.
    Some modern perfumes are 70% blenders, and 100% synthetic.
    It's just not how I have designed any of my released perfumes.

    In the spring, I may release a series of light, more citrus heavy, more diffusive perfumes.
    And with these light, etherial florals and citrus perfumes I will likely up the synthetics.


    To comment to your question about learning more about Eastern Perfumery.

    Yes! I am getting in some 200 attar bottle and am studying eastern perfumery diligently, from books, sources and
    speaking with people. Not to mention that I have been sampling various attars for the past couple of months.
    I will be making some 100% natural attars next year.

    To speak about my "method," I have love and respect for all types of perfumery.
    Modern fresh synthetics, my friend Fredrick does a wonderful job at these,
    I also love pure oud oil and sandalwood oils.
    I also love old style French perfumes.

    I love everything related to scent.
