Baruti – Greek for gunpowder
Who we are
Spyros Drosopoulos (Ph.D.) – is the perfumer and founder of the brand. Spyros is self taught in the craft of perfumery. He writes the formulas and evaluates them (with his team). As a researcher and academic, Spyros has always felt at ease in a laboratory environment. Experimentation is his second nature.
Marianna Mitsi (M.Sc.) – is the lab assistant and trainee perfumer. She blends the formulas, compounds the oils, maintains the lab in supreme condition and soon you will also see formulations from her hand.
How we do it
WHERE TO FIND US?
At BARUTI we care about giving you the best possible product we can, but we care even more about doing that in a way that keeps our eco footprint to a minimum. From the materials we use, our packaging and distribution channels, everything is designed with the planet in mind. In addition, we give back to nature and help raise awareness about environmental issues. We actively collaborate and donate a part of our turnover to The Red List Project www.theredlistproject.org.
BARUTI is also a sponsor of the Hortus Botanicus in Amsterdam and has adopted their Magnolia Denudata Desr. tree.
We believe that sharing is growing! Spyros teaches 2-3 times a year, the week intensive perfumery class at the Institute for Art and Olfaction www.artandolfaction.com and trains the next generation of perfumers (like Marianna). We also offer intern positions to students to train with us.
