Josh Lobb is an independent, self-trained parfumeur based in Portland, Oregon. Slumberhouse was born out of a collective of artists and a desire to create a variety of items for a certain demographic. Lobb was in charge of fragrances while other members would focus on clothing, art, etc. Eventually, the other members of the collective went their separate ways leaving Lobb with a fragrance line. With no formal training or experience in the fragrance industry, Lobb created fragrances by experimenting. In the early days, Slumberhouse fragrances were sold individually via Etsy but his creations quickly began to attract the attention of fragrance lovers looking for something unique and inspired.
