Handmade fragrances from Brooklyn, NY.

I met the Dalaga sisters in April of 2010. They were the very first store to carry MCMC and for that, they’ll always have a special place in my heart. Last year, for their shop’s five year anniversary, Michelle and May asked me to create a special fragrance for their shop. The Dalaga fragrance is inspired by sampaguita, a flower from the Philippines.
