Rogue Perfumery by Manuel Cross create beautiful artisanal and vintage-inspired fragrances. Manuel's independent perfumery study began in 2007 when he tried (and failed miserably) to produce a fragrance with essential oils purchased from the local health store. It immediately became an obsession which led him to ten years of researching and studying perfumery principles, history and aroma chemicals. He began creating fragrances out of pure fascination. The more he learned and practiced the more he began to discover recognisable accords and effects in many of his favourite fragrances. It became addictive! Eventually, after much time and trial and error, he began composing fragrances as a push-back to the systematic destruction of the classics. Between modern regulations and recommendations entire genres of classic fragrances are being either discontinued or completely reformulated. Manuel is bringing them back in style.
