Tired of perfumes that lack personality and were created by a marketing department, I wanted to create fragrances with integrity that appealed to my friends; individuals who follow their passions and don’t care to bump into someone else wearing the same fragrance. Edition Perfumes weaves together the purest natural ingredients to create unique sensory stories that inspire your imagination and captivates those around you.
I called the company Timothy Han / Edition as we choose to produce our perfumes in small batches called editions. While many perfume companies may have you believe otherwise, raw fragrance materials vary from year to year, like the grapes in a fine wine. Celebrating these subtle variations means each run of perfume is created in a limited volume, with edition numbering to allow you to easily identify which batch of perfume your bottle came from.
Iconic works of literature inspire each of our fragrances. Stories that delve into people's relationships - our relationships - whether with ourselves, others or our environment. Our entire existence as urban dwellers is based on our need to form relationships on a daily basis with those we meet. This journey is not just the inspiration behind the fragrance but is encapsulated in each facet of the olfactory journey, from the fragrance, to the name, to the bottle and the artistic collaborations forged. The way the fragrance develops on those who choose to wear it becomes their story.
Each fragrance will also feature a numbered work of art on the box cover which is tied to an individual artist. Similar to differing covers that appear with each new print run of a book, each edition of a perfume will also feature new artwork by the same artist.
I want you to be able to experience our fragrances not in the traditional manner, in which our sense of smell is isolated, but by allowing all our senses to work together. Thus the story is not only interpreted in fragrance but is also given to my friends to interpret in their mediums of art, music, drink and food. Smell is one of our most important senses and one which is too often neglected. I want to change that and help to create a more meaningful olfactory experience which becomes unique to you as individual.
I hope that if you get a chance to try my fragrances that you will find within them your own stories.
