by our founders, it is our backbone in everything we do.

We believe that there are too many bottles of perfume and not enough soulful



believe the soul of a fragrance comes from the intention with which it is

created and the attention with which it is prepared


believe fine perfumery must create a shock - the shock of the new, combined

with the shock of the intimately familiar


believe that fine perfumery must be irreverent


believe it is more humane to test cosmetics on New Yorkers than on



believe celebrities should pay full price


believe the future of luxury (hence of perfumery) lies in craftsmanship


believe in the soulful power of thoughtful hands: hand-picked roses,

hand-poured candles, hand-formulated perfumes and handshake agreements


believe in the passionate souls who work close to us


believe in Hafiz's take on life : "Act great, dear. Always act great”


believe New York made us this way, with a dose of Wabi-Sabi and a few lines

from Thoreau


believe we/you should put away our modern tools and take the time to smell the

roses along the way


believe that we are only young once, but we can be immature forever


we believe that explanation kills art. Therefore, forget about all of this
