Universal Flowering is a collection of dimensional fragrances designed by perfumer Courtney Rafuse.

Her fragrances are a romantic extension of her memories past and future, formulated with a synesthetic touch.

Known for collaborating with visual artists, fashion designers, and writers, her work has been featured and profiled in Nylon, Airmail, The Toronto Star, BBC Radio, & more.

Universal Flowering’s most recent perfume, “Death of a Ladies Man” was released in July 2023 - a voyeuristic tribute to the many lovers of Leonard Cohen. She currently resides in Toronto, Ontario with her beloved Silken Windhound, Cosey.

All perfumes are formulated in her west end studio/lab.
