Do you use naturals?
We’ve chosen our ingredients based on their intrinsic beauty and hedonic qualities, not whether they are synthetic or natural. We believe every ingredient has a role to play in a formula. We use a selection of LMR Naturals - undoubtedly the most stunning qualities available - as well as contemporary synthetic molecules which are the signature of modern perfumery.
How were the ingredients in the palette chosen?
We’ve put a lot of care towards curating a palette of ingredients that gives you access to the most beautiful and highest quality materials available. Our collective of perfumers has lovingly combined these ingredients into accords (mini compositions containing 2 to 20 ingredients) that span across a wide range of olfactory worlds. We have created 48 streamlined compositions of the essential building blocks of perfumery to allow a myriad of creations and sensations.
Are your scents safe?
We are deeply committed to transparency and safety in the creative process and have integrated a real-time safety review function in our app. Every unique formula created respects international ingredient regulatory guidelines. We are very proud to make this professional perfumery feature available at an individual level for the very first time!
