Today, almost every perfume is created from synthetic essences. Although synthetics approximate the odors of natural ingredients, they have none of the complexity, mystery or emotional depth. We bring an inexplicable emotional intensity to the experience of an authentic smell and the memories it sparks and creates.

My approach to creating artisan natural perfumes is based in the quality and integrity of the ingredients. I hand blend each perfume from my collection of extraordinary essences, which I have gathered with uncompromising standards for only the finest quality 100% pure and natural materials.

Quotes by Mandy Aftel  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“The nose is idiosyncratically central not only to our sense of smell but to our sense of who we are , in our most primal appetites. For the idea of appetite pertains to food as well as to all the sensual and spiritual experiences that drive us, give us pleasure, make us feel more alive in the moment. Scent is a portal to these basic human appetites—for the far-off, the familiar, the transcendent, the strange, and the beautiful—that have motivated us since the origins of our species.”
Mandy Aftel, Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent

“Smell is an invitation to a journey: it allows us to leave the ordinary course of things and go on a trip, to absent ourselves.”
Mandy Aftel, Fragrant: The Secret Life of Scent
