About Us

Ministry of Scent presents artistic fragrances by independent perfumers and brands from far and wide. Our team of serious perfume lovers are ready to go down the niche perfume rabbit-hole with you. Our buyers are expert noses on a mission to sniff out exceptional fragrances from around the world for you to explore in a warm, inclusive and fun environment — in-store and online.

We loved Tigerlily Perfumery too.

And here’s the good news: we're the same team, on a mission to share an even more diverse collection of the best indie brands, niche perfumes and cult favorite fragrances you’ve been looking for (or didn’t even know existed).

It was time for a change.

For the past few years, we’ve had two separate-but-related entities — Tigerlily Perfumery as our retail store and website, Ministry of Scent focused on fragrance events and special projects. We believe it’s the right time to bring this myriad of olfactory activities together under one universal name.

And you're a part of this too.

Hearing from our community is vitally important to us so please don't hesitate to let us know if there are brands you'd like us to consider — learning what you’re curious about is key.
