Like high tide dried on skin, memories of the waves, sun and shore.
Ingredients: Sea Salt, White Florals, Cedar, Ambergris and Musk.
I was born and raised in St. Clair, Michigan. Where I’m from, if you didn’t work in the automobile field, you were most likely unemployed. While each factory may produce a different car part, every factory was exactly the same: Production and Numbers. To get out of that scene, I learned how to paint and wrench on motorcycles. I’ve always been captivated by scents; gasoline, stamped steel, plastic, trees, earth, and eventually a name was forged, Kerosene.
After smelling everything I could get my snout on, I felt it was time to see if I could combine the right notes and create something special. My goal for my scents will always follow my three ingredients; raw, unique, and approachable. With the scents, I wanted the bottle design to match. So I put my painting talents to work, and little did I know, my factory production background would come in good use. Each bottle will always be painted with high quality automotive paint and clearcoat. The result is if a shiny, classic metallic Ford collided with perfume, as songs by The Cure resonate out of the peaky tiny speakers from the clunky 8-track player.
Hailing from Michigan, which is frigid about seven months of the year, I am naturally attracted to warm notes. Amber, woods, and spices, they do it for me and make their way into a lot of what I do.
