Behind the scenes
Baruti is an independent artisan perfume brand dedicated to the art of perfumery. Founded by Spyros Drosopoulos all perfumes are created in-house.
Meaning gunpowder in Greek, Baruti when used as an adjective refers to those with excessive character. It is for those who seek new experiences, food for the soul.
This is what the founder, Spyros Drosopoulos, says:
‘What I love about making perfumes is that it is both a technically challenging and a highly creative process in one. As a person I am what you call a “novelty seeker”, I just love to explore. This reflects in my work as well, I always look for new materials, new combinations or twists to expand known and familiar themes.
This is what my dreams smell like
I make personal and immediate perfumes
Rooted in the unconscious
Perplexing the senses
Like kaleidoscopic explosions of beauty
They can blow you away’.
Baruti offers 6 fragrances: Indigo, Berlin im Winter, Melkmeisje, Chai, Voyance, Nooud (30 ml and €97,50 each).
One of them, Melkmeisje, is a little bit more Dutch than others. Inspired by Johannes Vermeer’s painting ‘The milkmaid’, this is a very Dutch affair indeed, encapsulates the promises of early summer. With notes of pear, lilac, linden blossom, honey, orris root, vanilla, vetiver, sandalwood and musk.
