Mathew is not afraid to get his hands dirty. His wild crafted fragrances are born from the plant and tree material collected on hikes through California mountains, southwest desert, and Rhode Island cedar swamps. Mathew's wilderness journeys begin as a sketch or an olfactory short story he wants to tell. The climax of these stories might find our hero in real life, waist deep, sinking in mud to collect a sample. Then it's back to the workshop, steam distilling, tincturing, and infusing until the perfect balance of pine or fir oil is discovered. These gritty, adventure inspired scent stories are ones we could read again, and again.
