While Cult of Scent is an independently owned artisan fragrance house, it is also so much more than that.
Cult of Scent is an invitation to connect you back to your senses.
"Cult of Scent perfumes are the perfect example of the maxima "less is more". Less raw materials in the perfumes - more harmony, air and purity. Simple and clear, thoughtful ideas, high quality of the raw materials, and a lot of hard work to create the perfect harmonious accord - that's enough to become sucessful."
- Sergey Borisov, Fragrantica.

Cult of Scent started in late 2008 as a request for a range of fragrances to sell in a local boutique. It has since gained a loyal following from its customers (thank you all near and far!) and has continued to grow from there.
Cult of Scent fragrances can be found at the Cult of Scent Atelier in Stanmore in Sydneys' vibrant Inner West.
You can visit the Cult of Scent Atelier at Studio 7 43-53 Bridge Road Stanmore NSW by appointment or on Saturdays from 10-6pm.
