GET TO KNOW US
Hitchhiker, mathematician, social worker, educator, dreamer, perfumer. Michael fell in love with the art of perfumery after hitchhiking in 1989 to the West Coast. There, he met some folks who were using essential oils to increase spiritual self understanding and to develop bardo skills. The first time he tried a little bit of frankincense on his wrists he experienced dramatic perceptual changes. Sometime soon afterward, Michael decided to become a perfumer, but in a completely non-conventional manner. As the reality of this immense decision began to sink in, he had one of those huge belly laughs that only happen when everything is perfect. Michael has his own wheels now, but prefers cross-country skiing or canoeing in Canada’s remote wilderness.

She has been with us since October 2020 and has continued to bring her magic to La Parfumerie everyday since.
