Incredible Artisan Perfume From Micro-Perfumeries


Perfume Partners

At Bare & Bond we work with independent perfumers in order to give you the most exquisite perfumes that you won't find on the high-street. Meet our perfume partners.

Karen Timson

Quintessential, Conscientious, Sensual


We actually came across Karen through one of our Bare & Bond community who recommended her as someone we 'had to get involved'. We are so grateful for that recommendation. Thanks Marit!
 
Karen is delightfully passionate and wonderfully warm. Having served the NHS for decades, she decided to go on an adventure of the heart, creating perfume she was passionate about. One of Karen's great loves is Legend stories so she interweaved perfume and legend to create scents inspired by Midsummer Night's Dream.

Anatole Lebreton

Passionate, Authentic, Wild


We were introduce to Anatole by Miguel Matos and we're so glad we were. Anatole's passion for the creative making process of perfume felt like it washed over us as we met with him. Each perfume he crafts is like a craft of love. He calls it, Art With Heart.

Anatole creates perfume from his studio in France. He started out as a perfume lover himself, wanting to create fragrance only for himself. He didn't know that moment was only the begining of a bigger perfume adventure.

Miguel Matos

Daring, Artistic, Different, Fun


At Bare&Bond, we are very fond of Miguel. He is the first perfumer we’ve worked with outside the UK, Portugal to be specific, and the whole process has been a true delight.
 
If we could describe Miguel in three concepts, they would be; playful, dynamic and full of life. Miguel is unafraid to explore our olfactory realm, opening up minds and hearts to new experiences and having contagious fun while doing it.

Sarah McCartney

Adventurous, Witty, Friendly


At Bare&Bond, Sarah holds a very special place in our hearts. She was the first perfumer we shared our idea with and she has supported us ever since.

Sarah entered the world of perfume almost accidentally. It all started when she wrote a novel featuring a problem-solving perfumer. In it, she described the scents that the perfumer made. Sarah wanted her readers to be able to smell these scents and after writing the novel, she created them! Once she started, she just kept going. 4160 Tuesdays perfume house was the result and we are all thankful she did start the quest.

Ruth Mastenbroek

Elegant, Daring, ‘Classic with a twist’


I sat in front of Ruth as she radiated wisdom but also had a wonderful warmth about her.  
 
As Ruth told her story, I was hooked. Her journey from absolute self doubt, after being a perfumer for 30 years, to creating the first fragrance of her own brand, driven by a passion and care for her customers, was inspiring. From small beginnings to the shopfronts of Fortnum Mason and Fenwick of Bond Street, Ruth's brand triumphed.
 

Sarah Ireland

Evocative, Expressive, Elegant


I'd never visited the New Forest before meeting Sarah. Sarah had just launched her perfume range and I couldn't wait to meet her. We sat in a little shop and talked. I loved Sarah's story. It was full of life and truth. When I left, Sarah gave me some perfumes to take away with me.

Before leaving the beauty of the forest I decided to go on a walk. Putting on one of her fragrances, I set out. The experience of wearing Sarah Ireland Perfume on that walk changed my outlook of perfume, and has since shaped Bare&Bond as a company. The perfume Sarah had given me added a whole new sensory dimension to my walk. It was incredible.

 

Sarah Baker

The Artist Without Boundaries


Adventuring down unexplored paths, Sarah finds new mediums for her artwork that push far beyond convention.

This adventure led Sarah into the sensual world of perfume. Sarah's method of creating perfumes in deeply collaborative. She works with world renowned perfumers, allowing their story and experience to weave into hers, creating deeply sexy scents that are distinctly different.
