Thank you for your interest in The Perfumers Guild and welcome to what will be the beginning of a journey into the least understood of all five senses, our sense of smell. We smell with our hearts, and our noses, and fragrance often inspires an intuitive response to people, places and life experiences.
It is a great pleasure to share our passion for perfumery with you. Co-founders of The Perfumers Guild and my creative partners, are my wife, Sheila, and our daughter, Alexandra Bailey-Staines.
They both contribute hugely to the success of our pioneering English niche perfumery which I established in 1981. Perfume has held an irresistible allure for more than five thousand years. I hope you will enjoy the stories and inspiration behind our collection of limited edition perfumes. I have been very fortunate to have worked with some of the world's finest master perfumers.
The creative flow of artistic genius has always inspired me and some of my early compositions and formulae reflect those wonderful collaborations.
