We are proud of working with master perfumers. It brings a variety and depth to our collection. We believe their talents should be recognised and celebrated just as composers, artists for the enormous pleasure they bring us. Until lately, almost all perfumers worked behind the scenes, anonymously. Now, noses are emerging from their laboratories, starting to talk about their creations, and what goes into them. They have the talent and skill to whisk us through time and space, bringing back memories of people and places we’ve known and loved. Through their artistry, we can feel more romantic, more powerful, more beautiful, more creative…

The audacity of his olfactory creativity was fully expressed with the first Comme des Garçons perfume. Mark Buxton creations propose a refined world with an astonishing modernity. His style, rich and contrasting, fuses a traditional British touch, a hint of contemporary dandy, a rock and offbeat energy that casts off luxury codes with impertinence and daring. His search for absolute simplicity is translated into a seamless rigor and short olfactory formulas.
