Living in New Mexico is a true inspiration

Santa Fe Botanical Fragrances

Established on April 2, 1987.

I established Santa Fe Botanical Fragrances thirty years ago, when I realized that many people desired authentic natural perfumes and and aromatherapy products made with botanical aromatics. As a perfumer, I had the opportunity to enjoy natural aromatics. at the fragrance companies I worked for, however, they use very small percentages in their fragrances. They are too expensive to be marketed on a very large scale.

 These Links will take you to my new independent blog ‘Aroma Notes’

…and back to where perfumes are symphonies of notes, and in every way, similar to music compositions. You be the judge.

Over the years, I’ve delved into the mystery of perfumes and the intimate histories behind each precious natural drop, passionately in pursuit of familiarity with aromatics, which I accomplish by blending the oils in such a way as to design the composition to evolve at different rates and thereby create a symphony of aromatic notes.

These aromatic compositions utilize earth-borne ingredients, and result in simple but mysterious fragrances that are harmonious and aesthetically satisfying.

Creating perfumes from a natural palette is challenging, and opens possibilities far beyond the treasured fragrances of the past.

My Inspiration comes from living in New Mexico, from here, I can see the world. Enjoy your journey
