I love mixing and experimenting with new materials and putting visual ideas into perfume and am interested in taking my Perfumes to a more conceptual state. Creating fragrances that expands peoples imagination and gives them an appreciation of Natural Botanical oils, resins and the like excites me. Its an extraordinary journey and it gives me great pleasure to share it. The Botanical natural ingredients are amazing, both to play with and wear. They're totally interactive and become full of memories for the wearer.

The ARTISAN range of handcrafted perfumes we sell here on Etsy are very unique, both perfume and the packaging is all sustainable.

We have designed a custom perfume for New Zealand Singer/ Songwriter Ladi6 which was released in Nov 2010.
