Lush green pastures tumble toward the horizon, arching beneath the imposing silhouette of a mountain range. Cumulus clouds roll across a bright blue sky, their massive shadows gliding over a peacefully grazing herd. In a corner of the meadow, a tiny calf braces quivering limbs and, with a mighty lurch, stumbles up to take its maiden steps. Its velvet snout prods, rooting at its mother, until the release of warm milk signals a satisfying welcome to this vast new world.
Zoologist Cow brings to mind a bucolic scene, a myriad of scents from Mother Nature’s nurturing bosom. Innocent florals sway among soft grasses, while apple gently sweetens the soft aroma of fresh milk. The result is a place both familiar and reassuring, where warm arms unfold to welcome us into a loving embrace. A place called home.
Spyros Drosopoulos is a fragrance engineer and is the owner and creator of niche perfume line Baruti. Baruti is the Greek word for “gunpowder”. It is often used to describe someone with an excessive character, bite, or a certain edginess.
Starting with a PhD in neuropsychology with specifications in sleep and memory, Dr. Drosopoulos was intrigued by how the differences in scents can affect our perceptions and memories. Perfumery for Spyros started as a hobby during his research and teaching career. Now with Baruti, he aims to make perfumes where the fragrance is optimized as a medium for wearers to fit the character of the perfume.
Dr. Spyros Drosopoulos is often inspired by music and art when it comes to making perfumes. One of Baruti’s most-talked-about perfume, Tinderer, was also inspired by the song Tinderer by Danish band Under Byen. It is shown evident by how the aromas of the perfume matches with the percussions of the sounds in the song and this creation represents a crisp, dewy morning in a magical forest.
Finally, we would also like to mention that Dr. Drosopoulos, participates in The Art and Olfaction Awards. He serves as a shortlisting judge, in the artisan category.
