MadHat Scents is a great line of fragrances that I found through Basenotes. I originally purchased a couple of Ryan's scents just for myself but fell so in love that I wanted to share them with all of our customers!
Ryan's mission was to create a unique fragrance experience for his customers while creating scents that could not be found anywhere else. MadHat Scents began as a one man personal project to create scents that were not available in both niche and mainstream markets. Initially he had no intention of selling his fragrances - they were created just for himself and a few friends. After realizing the increasing demand for all things different, stemmed from an uprising in artisan perfume houses using high quality ingredients and increase in department store duplicates, he chose to make them available in limited releases. He created 600ml batches of his scents (all extraits created at 30%) and when they were gone, they were gone. His scents would actually sell out in about two months and new fragrances were released shortly after he had run out of a scent. Sometimes he would choose to release similar scents at a later date depending on demand but they all would have a different dimension. Sadly, Ryan has decided to stop making his fragrances for the time being.
Ruh Khus is a type of vetiver from Northern India and is known as the "oil of tranquility". Sandalwood from India, Vanuatu and New Caledonia is used in the base notes of this scent which pay homage to kalabham which is a type of sandalwood paste that is combined with other materials and applied to the skin in some Hindi religious rituals. Other Eastern inspired notes include a heavy dose of ginger, incense and geranium mixed with light rose. Other notes include ravensara and musk.
