Artisan perfumer in Barbados

Read my blog

I am an artisan perfumer, tea lover, and skincare enthusiast. I created Bajan Scent to talk about the creative process behind perfume-making, skin care ingredients, and growing plants, herbs, and flowers for perfumes and cosmetics.

Bajan Scent is primarily a record of what I am learning and of what inspires me, and I am more than happy to share this with others.

Many of the ingredients used in commercial fragrances and cosmetics come from plants grown right here in Barbados and the Caribbean.

I also hope to discuss the importance of using ethical and sustainable materials. Natural materials have an entire history and frequently overlooked ethno-botanical heritage attached to them which have helped shaped countries, the environment and the world economy into what they are today.

My blog is under development, but you can also find me on Instagram and Facebook. If you’d like to get in touch, feel free to say hello through any of the social links below.
