    I think the spirit of an individual can shine thru the many different forms of mediums.

    I'm glad Johnny Cash decided to buy his first guitar when he was in the Air force.
    I love his song Sunday Morning Coming Down.

    Somewhat.
    In the video Peter provided, I believe sub $100 to just above $200.
    I'll re-watch the video myself again though.

    While we all accept "trained" to be a hallmark of quality, the reality is that folks who graduate from the programs in France are trained to create from a fairly singular perspective. They definitely have more nose training -- molecule recognition -- than indie folks, and of course they have the same capacity for creativity, but they are also often hindered by an industry which is somewhat homogeneous in its approach to creation. Working from a brief -- even for a "niche" house's brief -- isn't the same unrestrained creativity that they could have if they put out work independently, which of course some of these folks do.

    Likewise, not having the same intensive understanding of molecules and how they scientifically work together can be a disadvantage for indies.

    Personally, I am very interested in "financing amateurs" -- but it's not as though I see it that way. I see it more as I am supporting creators who, in some cases (though sadly not all cases) create works that I feel are just as, if not more, legitimate or enjoyable than some of the highly-trained folks.

    With enough drive and personal study, both the "trained" and the independent perfumer can create stunning work. The hope here, obviously, is that Peter and Oz will do so.
    Well said.

    I’ve personally backed fragrance projects before. The lack of classical training is not that great a hindrance especially when they have strong points of view /inspiration. We have unconventional perfumers such as Bruno Fazzolari, Antonio Gardoni, Sultan Pasha, Josh Lobb, Russian Adam, Francesca Bianchi, etc. creating interesting pieces. On the flip side, uninspired ‘phoned in’ works by trained master perfumers are easily among the worst offenders IMO.

    Just ordered the sample set from Motiff Olfactif .
    The shipping charge was only $4.
    So the total for 5/2ml samples was only $34 .
    Here's the sample link.
    https://www.motifolfactif.com/product/samples/

    There's been 451 orders it seems so far.
    Will let you know my thoughts as soon as I receive them

    You can say what you want about Jeremy, but Peter is someone who cares about perfumery.

    There's a whole new wave of reviewers starting their own brands, Redolessence and MrSmelly have also joined the bandwagon.

    My order has already shipped.

    Yes, I agree. Peter is making his own perfume.
    In the video provided by MrOz, Oswald , he's doing all the work himself.
    From designing the labels, making the labels, and affixing the labels.
    Seriously. He has a paper trimmer/cutter for all that.
    From designing , to printing then cutting and gluing, that's a lot of work.

    Oswald, as well as Peter, have purchased most all of their own perfumes.

    I'm focusing just on those who are making their own from scratch.
    I have nothing against Steven, I have been subbed to him for over 5 years.
    He generally replies back to most all my comments.
    I most likely will be getting a sample or decant of his.
    Now that Jeremy is doing a BOGO, 5 mls of his will be going down and I will be getting a decant of his too.
    But again, Peter & Oswald are my main focus here.
    Why, because I like the perfumes they like, and who they are should show through their work.
    Always thank you for your comment.

    I was looking. Peters samples not available yet, right? I was searching kickstarter and gofundme. He got his own website or something?
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Here's this , it might help
    Facebook: www.facebook.com/fragranceview

    I just follow Peter on his You Tube channel.
    He does do live broadcasts on his channel.
    I wasn't home for them.
    I don't think he mentioned anything about fundraising.
    He mentioned dipping into his own money.
    If you get information , please let us know.
    Peter doesn't want to announce before he's ready.

    He said that he spent his entire life's savings on this project, so no Kickstarter.

    Thanks for this. As with other, I'm not on FB anymore and I don't have Insta. Just looked thru Peter's Insta and the first batch sounds interesting. I wish he has at least a website or an e-mail address where we can get on the e-mail list so we can get updated. Really looking for his still and patiently waiting for Mr. Oz samples to arrive. If you've bought a sample, keep posting what you think. Thanks!

    I feel like his estimated dates of release are coming and going. I saw something on Instagram about like "3 weeks hopefully", but don't remember the exact date. No snag I hope. What is the brand name anyway? Anyone hear?

    No information yet. He is doing everything himself, one of his recent posts, he was filling sample bottles. He passed his dangerous goods course and will be shipping worldwide from the UK.
