Hi, I'm Mandy Aftel! I create fragrances from my exquisite collection of sublime pure and natural essences from around the world, culled from years of searching for the most beautiful varieties. I blend and bottle the fragrances by hand in small batches in my Berkeley, California studio. Everything I make is free from synthetics, parabens, glycols, and petrochemicals. My products are sold exclusively on my website and when you come to visit the Aftel Archive of Curious Scents. I have written 5 books about fragrance and flavor, and I teach people how to create natural perfume through my workbooks and Zoom classes.
