Upstairs individuality was celebrated…Downstairs the joys of community were expressed…Most delightful of all, and perhaps most significant were the American sunflowers worked into the designs of the wrought iron…the flowers at The Chelsea expressed [architect Philip] Hubert’s wish that American artists in his cooperative hold their petals up to the sky.

Thin Wild Mercury is a fine fragrance line that draws from the many vibrant cultural eras of Los Angeles and New York, eliciting at once the factually historical and the purely fantastical.  In a 1978 interview, Bob Dylan described his 1966 seminal album Blonde on Blonde as having "...that thin, that wild mercury sound." While Dylan found the inspiration for this spirited description of his work through his band's lively, uninhibited performances of it at the time, ours is rooted in the illustrious history of the famous coastal cities; their renowned neighborhoods and hangouts and the nowadays fabled eras of their 20th century lifespan – told aromatically.

Thin Wild Mercury has a simple, traditional ethos of the masters: do it yourself. TWM's fragrances are like nuanced stories redolent of particular places and times of the past eloquently told by musings from the present. The result is something like a state of mind for the senses – for anywhere, anytime.
