In 2022, Chronotope's founder & nose Carter Weeks Maddox teamed up with Master Sommolier Bryan Ergle to launch Effronté et Évocateur by Well-Sewn with a trio of perfumes that were Maddox's first to design for a brand other than his own. The result? As James Daly of Les Oderants podcast claimed, "they're cliché free [...&] I love them all."
