About Tyler Monk, Perfumer
What started as an obsession of collecting luxury cologne and candles led to a need for discovery. In 2014, Monk began his passion-fueled research into perfume compositions, aromatics chemistry, and the profiles of classical and contemporary aroma profiles. In addition, Monk also began working with professional wax chandlers in the art of candle making. After months perfecting his accords and fragrance compositions he was compelled to start his own perfumery and candle making company, Luvandus. Having been unimpressed with the candles available on the market and their often too-cloying scents, Monk chose to launch luvandus with his own signature line of luxury niche fragrances. Monk’s vision with Luvandus is to create thoughtfully blended fragrances to wear, enjoy, and share. which are carefully crafted to deliver a sophisticated, chic redolence that matches one’s lifestyle.
¨Sometimes I envision what a certain fragrance combination would yield to my senses. I have curated my memories and daydreams into something you cannot see, only smell. The name of each fragrance is a time-stamp or a nod to a moment in my life. The artwork for each fragrance has significant meaning to me as well. I have journeyed on a dark path to bring fragrant light to the night. In the still dark, there is only love and us. "-TM
