Abel Odor

A plant-derived fragrance house,
fixated on a better future. 
Obsessed with natural scent.

The year was 2011, the location was Amsterdam, Abel founder and former winemaker, Frances Shoemack was searching for a truly natural perfume and came up short. Soon after, the idea for Abel was born. Fellow New Zealander, Master Perfumer Isaac Sinclair became Shoemacks’ first ally in the quest to disrupt an industry that didn’t believe natural perfume could be chic, modern, or stand up alongside the world’s best. 

Master Perfumer Isaac Sinclair uses the latest in renewable ingredients alongside the best in heritage naturals. Abel relentlessly innovates with fragrance development, packaging and processes to challenge industry norms and provide biodegradable, environmentally friendly fragrance alternatives for conscious urbanites over the world.  

For a decade, Abel has been on a quest to create the world’s best 100% natural perfume without compromising on ethics or aesthetics.
