Founded by Josh Smith, Libertine Fragrances are small batch, distinctly unisex fragrances all about ignoring trends and focusing on the things that make us human, artistry, beauty and complexity. The mission of Libertine has become to fill the world with beautiful scents while making a product that is ecologically and socially sustainable, continuing a mission to obtain single source ingredients directly from providers and support providers of sustainable managed crops and equitably paid workers.
Every part of the process is done locally and in house. The experimenting, blending, mixing and packaging are all done by hand in very small batches, usually 100 or so bottles. A mixture of essential oils and carefully chosen aroma molecules are weighed, mixed and diluted with carrier, either fractionated coconut oil or pure perfumers alcohol. The mixture is then aged to allow proper unification between essential oils and the carrier before it is bottled and ready to apply!
