Designers Emily Dyson and Ian Paley, the founders of Notting Hill concept store Couverture & The Garbstore, have developed an innovative new ‘No Chemicals’ fragrance collection.

Inspired by Dyson’s voyages around the Turkish coastline and childhood trips to the picturesque landscapes of Provence, the new range features perfumes completely free of chemicals and synthetic ingredients. The collection comprises two candles (available in small and large sizes), both hand poured in Paris; a hand-blended unisex perfume oil and roll-on; and a box of wooden incense sticks crafted by a Japanese factory with over 300 years experience in the art.  

The lively blend of essential oils is an olfactory journey, as the fragrance marries an array of aromatic spices. Tangy top notes of pink pepper and bergamot are mixed with fruity orange leaves, and fresh floral notes of black tea and ylang-ylang float alongside beeswax and cassius bark. Rose and geranium harmonise at the heart of the fragrance, accentuating spicy notes of ginger, while base notes of leather, tobacco, cedar, patchouli and frankincense add an air of sensuality. This is a scent both unconventional and fresh – a rare find in an overcrowded fragrance market.

Much like the perfume itself, the packaging design transports us to another world, adorned with a kaleidoscopic pattern in green – the design a watercolour painted by Dyson – inspired by ancient Turkish ceramics.

At Couverture & The Garbstore, the future of fragrance is a chemical-free one – a concept as refreshing as its new scent.
