Incredible Artisan Perfume From Micro-Perfumeries


The March Box

Each month we introduce you to a new perfumer and a new artist. All our perfumers are recognised within the industry for their incredible and innovative creations. These perfumers take fragrance to a whole new level and we're so excited to get to know them. For the March edition we partnered with Miguel Matos and Teresa Gonçalves Lobo

Meet Miguel Matos

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.

When smelling the perfumes from Miguel Matos, be prepared for your senses to be challenged and to notice hidden notes each time you wear it.

Sarah was the first perfumer we ever met here at Bare&Bond. Before that moment, the perfume industry felt closed off, cold and unavailable to any outsider. That perception was shattered upon our meeting. Sarah was passionate and full of imagination and character. She was captivating and she straight away became known to us as the Godmother of Perfumery.

Sarah not only cares about the well being of the industry but also tirelessly works to make the industry more equal, transparent and ecological. Her absolute generosity in mentoring and championing new talent and faces within the industry is really something to be marvelled upon. Actually, a lot of the perfumers you come across through Bare&Bond started out when one day, they met Sarah.

You'll really enjoy Sarah's perfumes are full of story, creativity and elegance.

Enjoy!

A Story Of Friendship

With each new perfumer we work with at Bare&Bond, we work with an artist too. Usually the artist creates art based on the perfumer and their perfumes. This time however, the process was reversed somewhat.

We actually met Teresa through Miguel. They had been friends since 2009 and bonded through their mutual love and admiration of each others art.

In January, during a visit to see Teresa, Miguel asked if we might use her art for the Bare&Bond editions that featured him. It felt like an obvious decision. Not only were Teresa's pieces incredible but we also really loved what their friendship and support of each other bought to Bare&Bond. Friendship is so precious and we really wanted to value their friendship.

The Perfume

Germaine

Germaine is an incredibly innovative fragrance, and in typical 'Miguel' style, breaks all the rules of convention.

It starts its life as a Fougère (or fern) fragrance. This brings the aromatic composition to this perfume, with a lot of herbs like basil, sage and juniper, but they come with a strong and sweet powdery vintage violet note. Here's the twist: this perfume is then transformed into a Chypre fragrance when vetiver, leather and patchouli come to play.

The Art

Described by Teresa as a painting full of movement, lightness, dance. This mono chrome piece of art captured an essence that intertwines both Miguel and Teresa's styles. It is simple yet deeply complex.
