Maison Anonyme is a purveyor of sophisticated and playful fragrances inspired by the history of perfumery and the worlds of art, music, literature and performance.
Designed to enchant, delight, and inspire, the scents are blended and bottled entirely by hand.
By turns sensual and rigorously cerebral, all of our fragrances are respectful of both the wearer and the craft, offering an alternative to mass-market perfumery that nonetheless remain grounded in classical technique.
The first three eaux de parfum from Maison Anonyme — L'Immortel
, Pale Fire
— were entered into the archives at the Osmothèque
in Versailles, France in 2018. The Osmothèque
is responsible for the authentication, registration, preservation, documentation and reproduction of historically significant perfumes, all of which are held in the archives and accessible by the public.
MAISON ANONYME employs Adrian Frutiger's Avenir typeface across all its communications. Released in 1988 by the Linotype foundry, the word avenir is French for "future." The family takes inspiration from the geometric style of sans-serif typefaces developed in the 1920s that took the circle as a basis, such as Erbar and Futura. Frutiger intended Avenir to be a more organic interpretation of the geometric style with details recalling traditional typefaces. He has described Avenir as his finest work.
