Fitzgerald and Guislain is composed of Alexander Chesebro and Ian Fitzgerald, two men from the Sacramento area of California who were captivated by scent, and its potential as an artistic medium for storytelling.
In our contemporary world of mass-produced artificial fragrances there are few opportunities to discover the true potential of fragrance as an impactful and inspiring art form. As a result, many people have become turned off to fragrances in recent years. We want to change that - our mission is to offer our customers the opportunity to rediscover the beauty of scent through artisan, natural perfumery, just as we did on our journey to becoming perfumers.
Drawing on both historical perfumery techniques from the nineteenth century and the modern principles of natural perfumery, we craft scents centered on telling an olfactory tale. whether the scent transports you to the majestic forests of the California coast or whisks you away to the stage of the grand opera, we seek to create a perfume experience that is as inspiring and invigorating to the imagination as it is to the senses.
Our passions were lit on the Mendocino coast in a chance visit to a remarkable perfume boutique tucked away between quaint victorian street fronts. With the guidance of perfumers and perfume aficionados, we set forth on the path to creating our own perfumes and eventually, Fitzgerald and Guislain.
