LKNU’s Education Manager, Liam calls upon his academic background in aesthetic philosophy to inform the way he approaches the world of scent. For him, fragrances are artistic objects that come from a particular moment in history, and situate us in spaces both real and imaginary. For this reason, Liam particularly enjoys the genealogical aspects of perfume, and has a penchant for works that are refined, elegant, and legibly structured. Patchouli, anise, and herbal green notes are mainstays in Liam’s fragrance wardrobe – and classical Guerlain works. His go-to at LKNU is the exquisite Tabac Tabou by Parfum d’Empire.


An all-rounder, Jesse is responsible for your online experience at LKNU. Endlessly intrigued by the world of perfumery and its technical-creative side, this speaks to his analytical and problem-solving nature. If it’s quirky and artistically blends notes of incense, citrus, castoreum, or tuberose, Jesse likely has his nose on it. Equally eager about playing the bass guitar and the complexities of wine, across his many interests, Jesse imparts his technical gaze over the world of sensation. His go-to scent at LKNU is the luscious and impactful Salome by Papillon Artisan Perfumes.
