We create natural fragrances from trees, flowers, herbs, and spices.
Our fragrances are made completely from plants, and our preference for natural ingredients, over the synthetics prevalent in most modern scents, is philosophical. The complexity innate to natural materials offers subtlety and nuance, which we find to be highly desirable. As our fragrances unfold in time and space, they hover at the edge of consciousness and evolve noticeably. Because natural ingredients have been in use for millennia, and olfaction is tied to memory in many strange ways, breathing in Sfumato scents is like a time bomb from pre-history, wafted and whiffed for untold generations, with a shock wave resonating across ten thousand years and a terminal node in your nostrils. We tie together the rich history of scent while raising and exploring questions still unanswered. Through Sfumato we seek the ties between fragrance, science, flavor, and experience.
Kevin is the nose of the company, blending our compositions by engaging olfactory skills honed in the culinary world.
Jane is the eyes, using her background in art and design to create the visual aesthetic.
Breathe deeply and enjoy the unfolding.
