Guaiac fragrance by Michael Anthony Perfumes

Michael Anthony Perfumes, a renowned artisan perfumery based in the picturesque Derbyshire Dales, is proud to announce the launch of their exquisite line of handcrafted niche perfumes. With a commitment to cruelty-free fragrances and a vision to make all their creations vegan-friendly, Michael Anthony Perfumes offers a unique olfactory experience that transcends traditional boundaries.

Founded by Michael, a passionate perfumer with over 13 years of experience in the art of fragrance creation, the company is dedicated to crafting small-batch perfumes that capture the essence of elegance, sophistication, and personal connection. From concept to blending and bottling, every step of the creative process takes place in their own studio, ensuring the highest level of quality and attention to detail.

Michael Anthony Perfumes was born from a lifelong love affair with fragrances. Michael recalls his teenage years when he worked in a shop selling commercial perfumes, a time when his fascination with scents first ignited. “Fragrances have the ability to lift you up during a tough time and evoke all kinds of memories,” says Michael. “I couldn’t imagine a world without scent.”

Understanding that fragrance is a deeply personal experience, Michael Anthony Perfumes offers a discovery set, allowing customers to explore and experience their unique scents firsthand. Each fragrance tells a story, and behind every bottle lies a personal journey and a labor of love.


One of the standout features of Michael Anthony Perfumes is their commitment to cruelty-free and vegan-friendly formulations. While some of their fragrances may contain tiny amounts of honey as the only animal-derived product, the company is actively working towards making all their perfumes 100% vegan in the near future. Furthermore, they refuse to test any of their products on animals and have a strict policy against selling in countries that require animal testing.

Michael’s dedication to ethical practices is deeply rooted in his love for animals. He emphasises, “As a lover of animals, it is very important that we do not test any of our products on animals and will not sell our products in countries that require animal testing.”

Michael Anthony Perfumes challenges traditional gender stereotypes in the world of fragrances, firmly believing that all scents are unisex. Michael’s own experiences have shaped this belief. “There is no reason why a man cannot wear floral fragrances or a woman cannot wear a spicy woody fragrance,” he asserts. “If you like it, wear it!”

Michael Anthony Perfumes invites fragrance enthusiasts and seekers of unique scents to explore their collection and embark on a sensory journey like no other. Discover the artistry of perfumery, the allure of cruelty-free formulations, and the future of vegan-friendly fragrances.
