They first vended with us in the winter of 2017 and we are thrilled to have them back for the spring! From their mouths: "We are an all-natural grooming company that strives to provide quality products like our Grandpa’s always used." That sounds pretty nice to us!

Leave a Lasting Impression with Libertine Fragrance

A good fragrance should have a certain personality that makes people identify the scent with you, and Josh Smith, creator of Libertine Fragrance, has been bottling that feeling. Libertine Fragrance produces unisex personal fragrances and incense here in Edmonton. They are created in small batches and made with a lot of love. Josh has been vending with us since 2014 and we are super excited to have him with us again for spring! Keep up with Josh's sinfully fun instagram (@libertinefragrance) and read on down below to see what has been inspiring Josh to create his fragrances:

RB: What draws you to making/designing things?
LIBERTINE: I studied Industrial Design in university because of a love of exploring new ideas and making things that have never existed before. It is mostly the excitement of working on a problem I don’t exactly know how to solve but that I get to place a piece of my own personality into the solution. 

RB: What’s in your designer/maker/creative plans for 2018?
LIBERTINE: I am working hard on a couple new perfumes that will battle it out to see which is released. I am also working on a new incense scent based around Hinoki (Japanese cedar) & Moss. I am also going to LA in October to go to perfume school for a few weeks! Also working on a homewares project with a friend to add to the Libertine incense line.

RB: Tell us about a few of your designer/maker/creative crushes:
LIBERTINE: So many! Isoí, Sebastian Errazuriz, Material Lust, Studio Job, Rooms Design, Apparatus Studios, Pelle Designs.
