I've been holding on to a secret and finally able to share it with you. I got a preview of The Fragrance Engineers prior to their launch back in July. Boy was it hard to keep this secret as what I learned was so exciting. The Fragrance Engineers offer a new concept that fill the void for perfume lovers, niche perfumers and entrepreneurs. Here's a first look at The Fragrance Engineers.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Founder Ryan T. Chadwick to learn about his company.
Ryan is a perfumer and trainer, which makes it very easy to talk to him. His passion shows as he shares information about The Fragrance Engineers. The Fragrance Engineers inspiration is to guide niche perfumers along as they make their dreams into reality. They eliminate the headaches associated with the financing, sourcing and production process. Imagine having the A-Team on your side as you translate your perfect scent into your own brand and company.
The Fragrance Engineers team members, are seasoned professionals with combined work experience spanning over three decades. Their expertise in the perfumery world are sought after by clients across multiple consumer categories. Each team member is unique and offer his own style when it comes to designing. Below are some perfumes created by the Fragrance Engineers team members. I was able to try these perfumes and share my thoughts.
1. AMOUR 4 PSYCHE
I received a full sized perfume called Amour 4 Psyche, designed by Ryan T. Chadwick. It felt like Christmas as I opened the perfume. The perfume packaging is very luxurious as it comes in a very fashionable hard bound black box (picture above). It opens like a book, with the label and ingredient description on the side. The perfume is securely housed in the right compartment of the box. The bottle is made of quality glass and the shape is perfect as it fits right into my small hands. It's perfect to tote along in my mommy bag. What I love the most about the bottle is the shiny silver cap. The cap weighs a good amount, making it a good quality metal. I'm a sucker for shiny objects.
The perfume is infused with rose notes accompanied by a refined wood base. It opens with a nice citrus note, as the perfume settles the rose note kicks in and followed by a wood trail. The wood note is personally the highlight of the perfume for me as I tend to shy away from scents that are too sweet and floral. This perfume is delicately balanced and wears like a veil of floral bouquet as you go about your day. My personal test, is if my one year old son can bear the scent when I'm wearing it. If it's too strong, he falls into a sneezing frenzy. Happy to report, he didn't even sneeze one bit. This perfume is lovely, a nice floral scent that can be worn for every occasion.
Notes: Rose, Cool, Citrus and Wood
