Ted Young-Ing started AER because he loves perfume. In fact, he has always loved perfume. But in a world full of commercial synthetics, he just couldn't find the "perfect" scent.
"what kind of person starts a perfume house?"
He wanted a fragrance that was bold and unique, but also fairly traded and made with natural ingredients. He couldn't find it. So decided to make his own...
Each of the perfumes is inspired by the scent of a single raw ingredient. They search the world for extraordinary natural plant extracts of incredible quality. When they find something exquisite, this ingredient becomes the centre of a new AER Scents perfume. Then they highlight special aspects of the star with a host of supporting ingredients to create an exciting, modern perfume.
AER is an independent natural perfume house based in Berlin, Germany. They have blended their life-long obsessions with scent, luxury, beauty, handcraft and sustainability into a very special perfume brand. AER's perfumes are bold, beautiful and 100% botanical. They create unique, special scents designed for a modern lifestyle.
AER formulates it's own recipes, sources it's own amazing ingredients from all around the world, and hand-blends all perfumes in it's Atelier in the heart of Berlin-Mitte. Their scents are proudly 100% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. All ingredients are directly extracted from plants. AER's perfumes do not contain synthetics or chemicals. They source from small producers who value traditional techniques, sustainable gathering, and fair trading practices.
AER perfumes are modern, complex, and unique. Like you.
