    The Writers’ Nook – Cinnamon & Orange


    The quintessential Christmas scent!  Inspired by the author Alexander McCall Smith, we tried to create a scent that would inspire creativity and guide you through your imagination. The Writers’ Nook is a spicy and evocative scent of cinnamon, orange zest and clove. We wanted to make a candle that took everyone back in time to cosy, candlelit winter evenings, reading in front of an open fire.

    Émilie du Châtelet – Freesia & Pear

    Our new scent Émilie du Châtelet is a fresh and fruity perfume of freesia and pear.  It is a wonderful scent to welcome a new Spring. Lex named it after reading a biography of female mathematicians and Émilie du Châtelet was a truly inspiring woman, whose character jumped out of the page. She was not only a gifted mathematician but also a physicist, philosopher and author of many acclaimed academic texts. The philosopher Voltaire was one of her lovers and once wrote of her that she is “a great man whose only fault was being a woman”.  There have been and are, many great female scientists achieving insights into science and philosophy in the last 300 years but unfortunately things have not changed all that much and we tend to just hear about the great discoveries of their male counterparts. Let’s change that and encourage more conversations and awareness of great women!

    Driftwood – Cedarwood & Patchouli

    Cedar is a genus of tree that is highly fragrant. Some Cedar can be used for making furniture or building houses and others for their highly fragrant perfume. Patchouli belongs to the mint family. It is a fresh but heavy scent and therefore compliments the powerful Cedar very well. In the 17th century Chinese traders used Patchouli to protect their silk from moths. Together Cedarwood and Patchouli create a roasted wood perfume.

    Mizaru – Sandalwood

    Our Mizaru scent is named after one of the The Wise Monkeys. Thought to originate from Japan, the pictorial maxim conveys the proverbial principle of See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil. Sandalwood is deeply rooted within many Eastern cultures for both medicinal and religious uses. The sent of Sandalwood is extracted from the base of its trees. Sandalwood trees are endangered due to their high demand. In Nepal and India Sandalwood trees are government-owned to protect them but the trees are often stolen and sold illegally. As we do not use essential oils we are not damaging the dwindling numbers of Sandalwood trees in the world. Our perfumers use molecules to replicate the scent exactly.

    Pannychis – Tuberose

    Our Tuberose scent is named after Pannychis the Goddess of nighttime parties and festivities. She was one of the attendants to Aphrodite. The Tuberose flower symbolises desire and forbidden pleasures. Queen Elizabeth I favoured the Tuberose and this is perhaps the reason for its noble connotations. Tuberose originates from Mexico but today it is mainly cultivated in Southern India and often used to worship the Gods. Tuberose only blooms once a year and always at night. Its cultivation requires infinite care. Tuberose’s imperious fragrance is considered the most powerful in the floral kingdom. It emits a sweet, heavy and creamy perfume, which deepens after twilight and a scent that is said to bewitch the perfumer.

    Tuberose is used as a base note within our perfume Cupid.

    The Jokoban Rose – Geranium

    A Jokoban, meaning The Constant Incense Board, is an ancient and ingenious form of timekeeping. As the hour changes so does the scent. Jokobans are skillfully handcrafted, lacquered, wooden boxes. The Japanese traditionally burnt Agarwood, Apricot or other native scents but AetP have chosen Rose Geranium for its fresh yet romantic and powerful scent. Rose Geraniums symbolise love and hope.

    … Living only for the moment, turning our full attention to the pleasures of the moon, the snow, the cherry blossoms and the maple leaves; singing songs, drinking wine, diverting ourselves in just floating, floating; … refusing to be disheartened, like a gourd floating along with the river current: this is what we call the floating world…

    The Raconteur – Bergamot

    Our Bergamot scent is named The Raconteur. A Raconteur can be described as a poet or dandy and the Bergamot is often used within perfumery to bind scents together or to close a perfume. Native to Southern Italy Bergamot is a citrus fruit that produces a flesh much too bitter to enjoy raw but a rich green/yellow rind full of essential oils so perfect for the making of perfume. Its scent is refreshing and we love it on its own just as much as when it is hidden within a perfume. “Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead”. Oscar Wilde.

    Bergamot is a top note used within our perfume Cupid.
