Gallagher Fragrances was formally established on June 6th, 2016. 

The story goes… 

I had been wearing designer fragrances since high school, most of which were fairly common to the majority of people. Fast-forward to 2015, when I found myself at a fork in the road. I was wearing (yet another) designer fragrance and Mindy (girlfriend at the time, now wife) returned home from work one day and told me that a co-worker of hers wears the same exact fragrance that I was wearing. Needless to say, this fragrance made its way to the back of the shelf. 

At this point, I visited your normal department stores that carry the normal crowd-pleasing designer fragrances, but I could not find any that really interested me. I began to branch out into indie/niche fragrances. After trying out a handful, I realized that these were quality products that were far more unique! But, something still wasn’t sitting quite right. I had a creative spark one day and began researching perfumery and “the rest is history.” 

In 2019, Mindy and I began to brainstorm about a new brand that would blend our two fragrant styles. With all the extra time at home during the pandemic, we brought these ideas to a reality. Pearlescent Parfums was formally launched in 2021. Pearlescent Parfums was later merged under Gallagher Fragrances in 2023 and is now referred to as the Pearlescent Collection by Gallagher Fragrances. The Pearlescent Collection invites you beyond mass-produced commercial fragrance into a world of niche perfume. Like the appearance of every pearl, the Pearlescent Collection is inspired by uniqueness. Each release will feature a different two-tone marble-like colored cap. No two caps are alike, so, in this way, every bottle will be unique.

Daniel Gallagher is originally from Massachusetts, “the nose” behind Gallagher Fragrances and the Pearlescent Collection (formerly Pearlescent Parfums), Creative Director of Gallagher Fragrances, and also acts as webmaster and graphic designer. Mindy Gallagher is a South Texas native and is the Creative Director of the Pearlescent Collection, and also manages the daily operations, from bottling to order fulfillment and customer service of both brands. Together, we bring you thoughtfully-crafted scents which are hand bottled and shipped with care from us to you. Each composition has been carefully developed through upwards of hundreds of trial and error experiments until the formula is perfect.
