"Orange blossom continues the Cologne-like freshness but earthier, wet woody cypriol hints at the cargo hiding in the ship's hull — a breeze of musk and oudh completing our odyssey." - Suzy Nightingale, The Scented Letter on Symmetry

Suzy Nightingale, respected fragrance expert and writer for The Perfume Society offers her summary of Symmetry from our S.BAKER Collection that gets straight into to the heart of the inspirations behind this fresh juice featuring oud as a note in the most recent copy of the society's magazine The Scented Letter.

T.J. Norris reviews Tartan on Notetaking

"This combines tobacco in a whispery way, again pairing so well with a skin-like leather accord, but so differently than elsewhere on this survey." - T.J. Norris, Notetaking about Tartan

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, T. J. Norris, the voice behind the fragrance review audiozine and blog Notetaking out of Fort Worth, Texas, has featured Tartan in his overview of fragrances with a tobacco note. We don't want to be boastful but we're not going to pretend that we're not delighted that Tartan scores highest of all twelve fragrances reviewed.




T.J. Norris reviews Symmetry on Notetaking

“Where has this been all my life? I’m serious. Oud and orange is my creamy dream team combo. And here it is in the best light possible… It’s confident and a bit of a seducer. It’s one of the best from the house bar none.”

T.J. has also recently featured Symmetry from the S.BAKER Collection in a review of its own called 'Balancing Delicacies'. And, with a 93% overall rating, it seems that this is another of our fragrances to please the olfactory sensibilities of the discerning T.J.




We want to extend a big thank you to all of these fragrance reviewers for their kind words about our juices. And, of course, we urge you, dear readers, to check them out.
