eau de parfum MANATEE 

Imagine being a sailor,  wandering around the world seas on your wooden ship. Washing ashore in a far and wild country. More dead than alive. Longing for fresh water. And than, a splash. You hope for a mermaid, you think you see one, but another creature welcomes you. It is the MANATEE!!!


Notes are: jasmin, ylang-ylang, watermelon, clairy sage


eau de parfum WHEELCHAIR 

Being close to the ground you smell the shivering freshness of mashed grass, combined with earthy tones and hay. Afterwards a leathery scent comes through, accompanied by an undertone of steel and violets.

A scent for the the person that needs to stay firm on the ground and keep an organized head although the inner emotions might be close to collapsing.


Notes are: grass, hay, lavender, leather, vanille


The Snifferoo Workshop is a workshop on the essence of perfume. Get acquainted with a collection of essential oils and synthetic fragrances by The Snifferoo. You and your group will learn about the history of perfume, methods of extraction, and synthetic fragrances. And you create your own scent. 

Each of the participants will go home with a 10 ml bottle of homemade perfume.

The Snifferoo

The Snifferoo is a personal approach on perfume by perfumer Frank Bloem.

'People should use perfume for themselves. Perfumes help to find the right mood for the situation you are in. That can be going out, waking up or even going to sleep.' 


Perfumes by The Snifferoo are the result of a search for a certain combination of smells. They reflect an exploration in an invisible world, the world of essences. The perfumes are not polished, you can still smell the ingredients they are made of. They evolve in time while wearing and they interact with the smell of your own skin


eau de parfum PUMPJACK

A fierce opening with a breeze of gasoline, lemon and cedar-wood is accompanied by the sweet oily smell of roses and wraps up with the filthy but exciting undertones of musk and tar. 

A perfume for daring romantics who go crazy over the smell of gasoline and as well dream away with moroccan rose by the constantly rotating rhythm of the tireless PUMPJACK.  


Notes are: rose, musk, tar, cedar-wood, vetiver


eau de parfum PARAKEET

A green exotic species with a red beak. Hanging around in parks, travelling through the air, using burrows of others and loving nuts. An exotic appearance that does well in the gray Dutch delta.  The perfume Parakeet is fresh, spicy and pleasantly unknown.  

Quite something for strange birds! 


Notes are: grapefruit, labdanum,  lavender, patchouli and incense
