OK FINE....so, what’s the story?
Well, Steve and I have made world-class fine fragrances together for the biggest brands in the world for over 20 years. We've been lucky enough to work at the best companies and with the best people in the business. And we're proud to have helped make hundreds of thousands of fragrance lovers happy. We even won a Fragrance Foundation "FIFI" award together for best men's fragrance launch waaayyyy the hell back when....
We’ve also partied too late in the city together. We’ve played Texas blues at local dive bars and friends’ weddings together. We’ve raised families in the same suburban town. And we’ve always wanted to blow off corporate America and start our own fragrances company together. But, honestly, the world of corporate department store fragrance brands has its perks. And like any industry, it also has its limitations. We won’t miss the limitations.
OK whatever, so now what?
Our resumes say we’re "innovation-driven makers and creative lifestyle pushers." It's true. Always have been. Always will be.Only difference is now we’re free to have a lot more fun making and pushing. For us, it’s all about pushing boundaries, pioneering new products and have fun doing that better and better everyday. And our true mission is finding those like-minded souls who seek variety, require creativity, curate individuality and appreciate the cool of quality handcrafted everything.
