Hello, I'm Anya McCoy, the perfumer and founder of Anya's Garden Perfumes.
My lifelong passion for fragrant plants and natural aromatics is manifested in my natural perfumes. I launched my first line of perfumes in 1991, and since then have taught hundreds of students the art. In June, 2006, I opened the Natural Perfumers Guild, and I foster perfumers, suppliers, associates, and friends in educating the public, and creating beautiful natural fragrances. In 2007, I launched the first online natural perfumery course, where learning how to make perfume is accomplished with professional, modern technqiues to bring natural perfumery into the 21st century.
In 2013, I was honored to be nominated and voted in as the first artisan perfumer inducted into the illustrious American Society of Perfumers.
The natural ingredients and the sophisticated quality of the perfumes reflect my decades of experience and devotion to 100% natural materials and study of many perfumery techniques.
