Autumnal hues, sitting in the garden – corduroy, stubble, a pile of well loved books. The soft scent of paper mingling with the beautiful aroma of a tree lined park. Earthy and woody, with the warmth of the afternoon sun setting upon your face while you lose yourself in a classic novel. A grounded and refined fragrance that warms the soul.
Mikado Bark is an ode to North Fitzroy’s Edinborough Gardens on a beautiful Autumn afternoon, the smell of nature while you read your book. Warm and inviting, earthy and woody but never heavy or too deep. This perfume is a lighter woody scent.

ABOUT THE BRAND
This Melbourne based perfume brand is created by husband and wife team – Josh and Jules. Some of our favourite faces here at Lore Perfumery, Josh and Jules live around the corner from our flagship store on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy so we’re lucky enough to see them quite a bit. This Melbourne made range is a true product of Australia, with each perfume telling the story of Josh and Jules’ relationship and adventures in and around Melbourne. First of all we love how this whole range smells…secondly and almost as much, we love how being from and inspired by Fitzroy amd it’s local surrounds…we feel like we can almost claim them as our own. So proud of Josh & Jules’ perfumed ode to their long standing and inspired lives in Fitzroy are we.
HOW IT WEARS
Mikado Bark is an Eau de Parfum that will give you a good 6 – 8 hours worth of wear on the skin. A delicate hint of green pepper counteracts the earthy spice of cinnamon, clove and delicate touch of white musk, all bedded down in a cosy bed of woods for a delicious creaminess that binds to the skin for a very balanced wear, true to its opening all the while in. Warm, sweet and comforting.
Rumour has it a couple of local legends/co creators of this scent pledged their undying love and lifetime commitment to each other in the beautiful outdoors of a park nearby, surrounded by loved ones and the wonders of the natural world. With this in mind, we simply love how this fragrance celebrates love…as well as the love of autumn itself and good times spent amidst it’s natural beauty. Moist fallen leaves soften the ground beneath the feet, a turn of season, romance and celebration in the air…all deliciously laced with a hint of wedding cake. Creamy, warm, earthy, sweet and oh so romantically inspired!
