Passion for the finest quality artisanal niche fragrances combined with the inspiration that comes throughout the journey of life, has sparked the creation of a truly unique line of fragrances.
TSVGA PARFVMS is the epitome of something beautiful being born from something ugly. A bizarre time in history causing us all to self quarantine, allowed one to make the most of this time, and dive into the art of perfumery, completely self taught. There was absolutely no desire to engage in any beginners class to learn to make a basic fougere or chypre. Anything that comes out smelling like something that has already been done goes straight into the "duds" box, as it is the mission of TSVGA to only create something new and original. The market does not need another rose-oud combo, or some derivative of another successful perfume. TSVGA fragrances are driven by passion and love of the art form rather than focusing on what has been proven to sell well by other companies. TSVGA does not piggy back off trends. TSVGA starts new trends. TSVGA is going to be a breath of fresh air in the fragrance world, so if you have been on the search for something new and exciting, your search ends here.
I put in the extra time and effort to deliver you a truly artisanal indie niche handcrafted experience. From the materials gathered on adventures in the woods to create unique tinctures, to the presentation of the perfume bottle; this is a fragrance brand that is built on being a one man show to provide something that cannot be mass produced by machines or cheap labor. With TSVGA you are buying more than just a fragrance. You are buying art. You are buying a piece of the artist's soul. Creating a niche fragrance brand allows one the shining opportunity to showcase their art and creativity in a functional way (as a perfume bottle), and it is a shame to waste that opportunity. As a collector, presentation has always been very important to me, so I made it a staple in TSVGA. I gear my brand toward like-minded folks who care about and appreciate these artisanal aspects of perfumery.
As a collector over the years, I learned all of the ways I want and do not want TSVGA PARFVMS to operate. Something I always wanted was transparency, and to be able to see some behind the scenes and inner workings of the brand. I wanted to see the perfumers station, and the perfumer at work. I wanted to have a view of his perfume organ, resting assured they had a collection of high quality ingredients. If they claimed "hand-made" presentation, I wanted to see them making it with their hands. That is why I enjoy being very open about my process and broadcasting it on youtube and instagram for you all to see.
TSVGA PARFVMS consist of mostly natural ingredients and tinctures created from things found in nature. Note breakdowns will not be made fully available, however, ratio of naturals to synthetics is available, as well as whether animal products are used or not. All animal products are ethically sourced/legally obtained with permits. I provide the percentage of naturals used in each perfume vs. synthetics (I mainly aim to do 100% natural). Having these ratios available is important to me, as this lack of transparency from other brands has prevented me from buying their products. Do not be fooled by the common trend of "we use a mix of natural and synthetic ingredients," because technically they could be using 1% naturals and their statement still holds true.
Sometimes in natural perfumery, scent profile can vary with one ingredient even if you buy from the same source again, and sometimes an ingredient becomes unavailable. This is no reason to stop making a beloved fragrance. If an ingredient needs to change, then it will change. The fragrance will live on despite mild necessary batch variations, as long as those variations do not severely alter the fragrance. If you are into natural artisanal fragrances, you are likely aware of this already and are okay with it. This happens with natural brands whether they are transparent about it or not.
I believe that knowing note breakdowns ruins the magic and mystery when experiencing a new fragrance. I encourage you to sample first and go into each fragrance with no expectations. Hopefully, your nose will be surprised and leave you only to wonder about the composition, and be able to feel the sensation and beauty of the fragrance, rather than just identifying the notes. This mystery and wonder is something I value in perfumery, and I want it to be a part of my brand. I assure you that my fragrances contain high quality natural oils, absolutes, and tinctures. You are getting what you pay for when purchasing a TSVGA fragrance. I am aware that revealing the things I use in each fragrance would often be a huge selling point, but I would rather keep the mystery. Most love this concept, and have enjoyed this "blind" smelling experience. If you do not, I encourage you to embrace the unknown, and give a sample set a try. Usually with new releases, I will not release any notes for a while in order to give folks a chance to have this experience.
Pink is not for girls any more than a floral or gourmand scent is. TSVGA does not assign a "pour homme" or "pour femme" label to any fragrances. Sure, there are scents we can all recognize and say they smell "masculine" or "feminine" because society has ingrained that thought process within us. It is okay to acknowledge and be aware of that and at the same time say, "I am going to wear it either way." The scents I have found most "masculine" in this line are loved and worn by women, and vice versa. Wear what you like!
How backwards does it seem to be buying a fragrance out of fear of missing out (FOMO) if you dont blind buy it right away, because a brand advertises it as “limited?” (also known in the fragrance community as 'limited until they sell out, then release more'). TSVGA believes you should be buying fragrances only if you love them, not out of FOMO. There will be no “limited” releases in order to make sales. Though, batches will be small, and there may be some waiting time between batches depending on demand. The only limited thing will be the visual art aspects of TSVGA, like deluxe boxes and art pieces (paintings and one of a kind bottles).
