Walden Natural Perfumes are made from the finest natural absolutes, resins and essential oils in the world.
They are named after Henry David Thoreau’s seminal book “Walden”.
Part meditation, part handbook for simple living in harmony with nature, it was written by Thoreau while living in Walden forest for two years.
It has inspired countless readers since its publication two centuries ago and its central lessons of selfsufficiency
and anti-materialism still resonate today.
“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” – Henry David Thoreau
All the Walden perfumes are named after passages from the book.
Walden is proud to continue the traditions of high perfumery, before the advent of cheap synthetics, when master perfumers blended the finest natural ingredients into fragrant masterpieces.
“Things do not change; we change.” – Henry David Thoreau
Modern perfumes are created by fragrance chemists using aroma-chemicals and selected by focus groups, then made in factories and shilled by celebrities. While they may smell stronger and last longer, they lack the depth and subtlety of natural ingredients.
Walden perfumes, on the other hand, are created by our perfumer based on an idea or inspiration using real absolutes, oils and resins.
“Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself.” – Henry David Thoreau
Stephan Bisse has always been fascinated by scent and was the co-founder of Perfuma.com in 1998, the first perfume website in the UK
After getting tired of the increasingly similar, synthetic perfumes on offer he decided to learn the art of natural perfumery and create perfumes the way they are meant to be – handmade in small batches from the finest natural ingredients.

“In any weather, at any hour of the day or night, I have been anxious to improve the nick of time, and notch it on my stick too: to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment: to toe that line.” Henry David Thoreau

them.” Henry David Thoreau

“If a man does not not keep pace with his
companions, perhaps it is becaise he hears a
different drummer. Let him step to the music
which he hears, however measured or far away.”
Henry David Thoreau

“Talk of mysteries! Think of our life in nature – daily to be shown matter, to come in contact with it, – rocks, trees, wind on our cheeks! The solid earth! The actual world! Contact! Contact! Who are we? Where are we?”
Henry David Thoreau
