An illustrator and graphic designer by trade, Ömer İpekçi was born in Istanbul where he currently resides. A childhood spent between the high altitudes of rural Black Sea, the idyllic Mediterranean coast and the chaotic urban Istanbul has taught him to appreciate contrasting environments and cultures for what they are.
Before taking on perfumery, İpekçi also sought creative expression in painting, music, photography, and calligraphy without making them public.
“Perfume is an underappreciated shortcut to trigger emotion without words and images getting in the way. It can and should be more than seeking status or smelling acceptable.”
