Additionally Six Scents has been privately commissioned to develop fragrances for Project Zero Zero’s Them/Her multi-sensory project with Nicola Formichetti/Kaimin/Miles Aldridge, The Arnheim Mode Bi-enalle, and The Standard Spa Miami Beach.
Six Scents was co-founded and is currently headed up by Joseph Quartana, the former director of the avant-garde fashion boutique, Seven New York.
All of our products are developed in Paris or New York and made in New York City.
In 2016, Six Scents launched its new sister brand, PARFUMS QUARTANA, which aims to explore singular concepts in perfumery. It's debut collection, Les Potions Fatales is based on the folklore of nine different infamous poison flowers used for murder, suicide and magic rite.
