Capture and extend the life of your favourite fragrance, with Lockstone.

The revolutionary Lockstone range: crafted from a meticulous study of nature to capture and extend the life of your fragrance.

Whatever your scent – Lockstone captures it – needing only a  few sprays that will last approximately seven times longer than wearing your fragrance without it, so you will have  the fresh scent of your fragrance with you  throughout the day.

Combined with a minimalist  look, the collection  is a piece that can be teamed with any style - as suited to men as they are to women, and as wearable for the formal occasion as they are for the every day.


This is Lockstone : Welcome to our world

The pumice stone: on the outside, it’s an incredibly simple object – yet within it are thousands of intricate structures – structures that make for micro aerated pathways, allowing this otherwise innocuous item to absorb and retain moisture for a longer duration.

This naturally created material has been under the microscope within our labs – where we’ve been able to harness micro-porous structures to create a revolutionary material.

This all-new, patent pending material draws fragrance in, slowly releasing the scent over a long duration. For you, this means longer lasting and better performing fragrances – where expensive designer scents enjoy a longer life and through which an aroma can be sustained far beyond a single day’s wear.

The science behind the design
The specific science that we draw upon is capillary action – where water molecules are drawn deep into the material, to migrate slowly back up to the surface through osmosis. It is then that the water evaporates, releasing the fragrance: a slow, sustained scent release.

The Lockstone Range 

The most effective of designs are based upon the most simplistic of principals: which is why we’ve crafted our range to be free from mechanical components – drawing upon only nature as inspiration for a material that releases fragrance the day through, without fail.

Pendant Pomander:  Where classic style meets modern minimalism

We've reinvented the classic piece that is the pendant; through a focus upon clean lines and an impactful, minimalist design we’ve created an item that delivers long lasting aroma whilst equally adding subtle style to any outfit. For men, for women, for the formal and for the every day.

Fo r every form of fragrance

Each of our pendants are simply infused with any given fragrance via the stem. Our breakthrough material then emanates scent as the stem warms against the skin.

Our Cuff Links: Where homage is paid to the craftsmanship of metal work.

Through combining machine turned stainless steel and brass with classic style we’ve found powerful partners, creating a design that is as practical as it is elegant.


Load  your Lockstone : How it works

A simplistic three step process

  1. Invert your Lockstone and spray with your favourite fragrance; watch as the liquid saturates and is then gradually absorbed.
  2. Leave upright for a few minutes – allowing the fragrance to be fully infused into the Lockstone
  3. Your fragrance will then be locked within the stone and through its micro absorbent structure your scent will be gradually released through contact with the skin.

          A design Story 

          Accidental beginnings

          Lockstone emerged from a series of failed attempts at creating a new way of producing wallets; it was throughout this process that we noticed the materials we were working with remained damp – even after the washing and drying process, an occurrence that was to become quite the annoyance.

          Yet this frustration would soon turn to curiosity, and we began to ponder just how this natural characteristic could be harnessed for something useful – and with that, our focus was shifted to refining a material to lock in fragrances.

          Metal: A perfect partner to the Lockstone

          The design development phases were filled with exploration as to how the Lockstone could and should be teamed with other materials; pure metals seemed a natural fit to a project that had, by then, become defined by purity and refined by a focus upon simplicity. Equally metals provided for a contrast, whilst delivering an uncompromised design that could elegantly withstand the rigours of everyday use.

          By tapping into CNC turning we were then able to achieve perfect geometry – ultimately creating the timeless design that you see before you today: a design that goes on to also delver rigidity and practicality for easy, stylish everyday use .
