Smoke Perfume is a unisex fragrance made with pure essential oils. Created in 2009 in my apartment in the French Quarter, the scent is a woody and mysterious blend of vetiver, jasmine, and citrus essential oils. The brand has expanded to house a candle, and a new scent launching soon. Smoke is inspired by and made in New Orleans, and relies on local material whenever possible such as reclaimed wood as well as the collaborative work of New Orleans based designers, candle makers, woodworkers, and laser etchers.
