The Maker is a lifestyle fragrance brand that started as a hotel. We fuse a bohemian sensibility with sustainable practices to create a complete, transportive experience. The scents and spaces awaken the senses, inspiring you to become the ultimate maker of your sensuality. 

Our mission is to inspire a sensual life, without inhibition. 

make it a universe

Our brand spans hospitality, lifestyle, fragrance and retail. What began as an immersive hotel with an eclectic style inspired a masterfully crafted, bespoke collection of products that enriches your life with taste, comfort, and sensuality. Born in Hudson, NY, home of our award-winning hotel, we have an online store, a shop in NYC and our fragrances are available in stores across the country.  

The Maker Hotel in Hudson

Housed in three historical buildings, the intimate award-winning 11-room property is a curated sanctuary with an eclectic fusion of design from nineteenth-century Industrial Design, La Belle Époque, Art Deco and Mid-Century periods.  

Our sumptuous spaces include an all-day cafe, lounge, restaurant and gymnasium open to the local community. About Hudson


The Maker Fragrance

Our collection is inspired by travel fantasies we’ve lived or long for at The Maker Hotel. Lev Glazman, co-founder and fragrance architect, created these perfumes with layers of rich, sultry notes amplified by arousing pheromones for undeniably sensual scents. Our gender-inclusive fragrances are clean and responsibly made.

make it bohemian

The Maker aesthetic is intentionally eclectic and unexpected. Our rich bohemian sensibility fuses a worldly design ethos shaped by decades of travel. We layer rich textures and patterns, warm jewel tones, and soulful objects to truly make life more sensual. We work with masterful makers, including local and global artisans, and acclaimed perfumers to bring our vision to life. 

make it immersive

We create transportive one-of-a-kind experiences and combine immersive storytelling to ignite the senses. Discover our Fragrance Cocktail Menu in The Maker Lounge, The Fragrance Library for our hotel guests with Lev’s collection of personal fragrances, and signature events that create memorable moments.  

“You don’t just stay at the hotel,
you take the hotel home with you.”

make it sustainably chic

We are committed to providing luxurious spaces and products at a cost to us and not the environment. 

Our Hotel

Over 70% of the property’s décor is vintage, including one-of-a-kind antique pieces, restored heirlooms, and new pieces built from various salvaged elements.

Our Fragrances

Our clean, gender-inclusive formulas are vegan, cruelty-free, and made without phthalates, parabens, formaldehydes and synthetic dyes. Click here to learn more about our clean standards and responsibly made packaging.

the original makers

The Maker is founded by Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg. Natural-born pioneers, they also founded global sensation Fresh, trailblazing effective natural ingredient formulations in beauty.  

After extensive travels, Lev and Alina felt like a highly curated concept was missing, bridging hospitality, lifestyle, and fragrance.  

Gifted at seeing what's next, they teamed up with hospitality expert Damien Janowicz to open The Maker Hotel in Hudson, NY and Bartlett House, a bakery cafe in nearby Ghent, NY. 

“Hospitality gives us the opportunity to create special experiences that evolve into a lifestyle brand, where stories can be told to inspire and create emotional connections.”
