Designer turned perfumer, Libertine is a multi sensory experience meant to take you places you never knew you had been before.

My name Is Josh Smith and I am a designer and artist. Through a series of beautiful coincidences, a love for essential oils and the support of a few wonderful people I began creating perfumes that I wanted to bring to the world. I am based in Edmonton, Alberta and I absolutely love the prairie landscape. My initial path had me studying forestry because of that love. I chose design to better express my creativity but perfumery has provided that link back to the trees. It sparks my memory and provides me with the same sense of comfort, even when I am stuck in the city.

All of my perfumes begin with that natural inspiration, an image or a memory that I then translate into scent. The fragrances are created using natural essential oils and professional perfumery ingredients all mixed in to moisturizing coconut oil. This means they help to hydrate your skin rather than dry it out.

The name Libertine comes from a 17th century word originating around ideals of the enlightenment. It boils down to "free-thinker" or one who ignores convention. When I looked at perfumes and colognes and how the industry operates I didn't see where I fit in. On one side there are the traditional perfume houses selling abstract ideas using sex and jealousy as marketing tools and on the other side the purists that in some cases are selling a mix of one or two essential oils and charging like crazy for it. I want to provide the most beautiful product for people to enjoy without polarizing my product to sell better.

Libertine Fragrances are small batch, naturally inspired, distinctly unisex fragrances (because screw gender roles, right?)
