ABEL- The ultimate intersection of art, ethics and natural science…
Named with a nod to the Dutch adventurer Abel Tasman, the first European to discover New Zealand in 1642. Abel was founded in Amsterdam by New Zealander Frances Shoemack with a simple goal – to create the world’s best natural perfume. Created by master perfumer Isaac Sinclair, Abel’s vita odor collection is the result of extensive research and development into how to make the very best natural perfume possible. Each fragrance is composed of a highly concentrated mixture of natural oils and absolutes (organically certified where possible) and naturally derived single aroma compounds. The result is dynamic, intimate and modern natural fragrances that last all day on your skin.
Vita odor, living fragrance – 100% natural ingredients
Rather than clouding your personality with a consistent intensity, the beauty of all natural ingredients is that they’ll evolve on your skin, working with your natural body chemistry to create a unique scent. One that will continually evolve throughout the day.
Abel lives on your skin, until it fades away.
Elegant perfume for men and women
At Abel we believe…
In the power and beauty of scent. Its ability to enrich daily life in a way nothing else can. We believe that indulgence doesn’t need to have a negative impact on the earth, its inhabitants, or you.
When winemaker meets master perfumer
A former winemaker, with a penchant for scent and a holistic philosophy, it’s no surprise Frances was looking for a modern natural perfume. If you know Frances, you wouldn’t find it surprising that when she was unable to find one, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Transfixed when she saw a video of Master perfumer and fellow New Zealander Isaac Sinclair waxing lyrical about the similarities between perfume and wine, Frances knew she’d found her Nose.
Trained in Paris and Milan and based in Sao Paulo, Isaac plays commercial fine fragrance perfumer by day, and Abel Nose by night. For Isaac, working on Abel is a unique opportunity to create standout scents using the best (natural) ingredients in the world.
Following the success of their two original fragrances launched under the Abel Organics brand in 2013, Abel’s new vita odor collection is a coming of age for the Abel team.
