Anne McClain is doing it right. The creator of the Brooklyn based MCMC Fragrances is inspired by personal stories and memories, uses natural ingredients for every fragrance and ensures all MCMC products “come to life in a way that feels natural, fun and elegant to the wearer.” Anne is also pleasantly wonderful when it comes to corresponding via email about special requests and inquiries.
Lauren and I each have a favorite MCMC fragrance. I love Hunter, which was inspired by an old friend of Anne’s who played guitar and taught her to love the natural world. It has notes of tobacco, vanilla and fir, and is perfect for winter days in the Northwest. Lauren prefers Noble, the fragrance that started it all. It’s both floral and woody and can be worn 365 days a year.
The best part about her fragrances is that they are all subtly rich, and never overbearing. And for all of the bearded men out there, MCMC has something for you too. Meet Dude No. 1, a beard oil inspired by her husband. It’s 100% natural and with cedarwood, coriander and peppercorn it’s both woody and spicy.
