Scent is a powerful trigger for memories and that is certainly true with gardens. Evoking memories we share as gardeners, Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz, founders of the eponymous apothecary and perfumery, MALIN+GOETZ, have launched a new fragrance, Stem, based on their nine-acre garden near Hudson, New York. Join Matthew and Andrew with the landscape architect and gardener who helped them get started for an intimate tour of this memorable and inspiring landscape.
About five years ago, Matthew and Andrew began restoring their historic property, having caught the gardening bug years before when they lived a bit further up the river. Close to Olana, their current Hudson Valley home is surrounded by countryside protected through conservation easements. To achieve their garden dreams and develop a master plan for the raw land, they collaborated closely with local landscape architect, Jamie Purinton, and master gardener, Pam DeGeyter. Taking cues from the regional landscape and their own collection of Hudson Valley buildings spanning four centuries, they have created gardens and outdoor living spaces to ground the structures. The next phase will be to knit these all together. Though still a young garden, the property already includes an herb garden, a vegetable garden, multiple patio areas, a walled sunken garden, a developing orchard, a berry garden, and meadow and woodland walks.
Matthew said, "Andrew is an incredible cook and we enjoy eating (and sharing) the bounty from our own land. However, the garden for us is simply about pleasure—working in it, the break from the pressures of our business in the city, the aesthetics, the seasons, the cultivation and production, the accomplishment and even the struggle. We LOVE it. Stem, our new scent, grew out of all of this, inspired by the green residue left on your hands after a long hard day in the garden." Enjoy a glass of wine and a spritz of MALIN+GOETZ Stem to round out this deep experience of place.
