James Peterson established the Brooklyn Perfume Company in 2014 after years of experimentation in his olfactory laboratory. James Peterson is an award-winning food writer, cookbook author, photographer, and cooking teacher who started his career as a restaurant cook in Paris in the 1970s. He is the author of fifteen titles, including “Sauces,” his first book and a 1991 James Beard Cookbook of the Year winner, and “Cooking,” a 2008 James Beard Award winner. He has been one of the country’s preeminent cooking instructors for more than 20 years. He is revered within the industry and highly regarded as a professional resource. It is the gradual unfolding of aromas and complexes that keeps James fascinated by his (relatively) new pursuit. The search for a new perfume is analogous to creating a fine sauce—struggling note by note, until a perfect and original flavor comes into being. We invite you to experience Brooklyn Perfume Company’s truly unique perfumes – sandalwood, musk, oud, and amber.
