I'm Annette Neuffer, founder, nose, "chief cook and bottlewasher" of the Duftmanufaktur. I have had an intense interest of all things fragrant from an early age, very early, to be more exact... In my Grandma's beautiful garden, I spent a lot of time on thorough researches on botanical raw materials...



A little later, I became a jazz musician and -educator, which is still my main occupation. Nevertheless, I couldn't let go of my interest in the olfactory world and started my first blending efforts during my jazz trumpet studies at the music university many years ago. At that time the internet wasn't present yet and so was the availability of suitable essential oils, absolutes and such (with very few exceptions in the health food store).

So I didn't really bother, went on tour, made recordings, teaching jobs at schools and workshops, had a baby later on, my Grandma too (yes, the one with the garden!), and so on...Until some ten years ago, when I took up my experiments again. Very much to my own surprise, people started to be enthusiastic about my concoctions and I received a couple of great reviews and high praises on the internet, which I would have never, ever expected. Again, a big thank you to my supporters who took their spirit, time and energy in writing! So I decided to dig a little deeper and more consequently besides my musical activities.

After about 10 years of intense experimentation, research and hunt for the best raw materials,  I am offering my collection of entirely natural perfumes, made from the best natural essences available. The fragrances are carefully produced by hand in small batches in my laboratory in Freising/Munich Airport. And If you're in the near, don't forget to drop by for a sniff or two...
