Inspired by nature, from faraway places to simple backyard pleasures and everything in between, OUTDOOR FELLOW believes that scent is a powerful vehicle that can make your home smell amazing, promote a better well-being, and inspire you to take a break from modern distractions and get outside.

OUTDOOR FELLOW started as a hobby in 2018 for founder Patrick Jones in his fourth-floor, walk-up apartment in the middle of Manhattan. Being stuck in a crowded city with limited access to wild, natural areas inspired his philosophy that if you can’t get out to nature, bring nature to you. Each scent is designed to evoker positive memories of the outdoors and transport you to those cherished moments in time, whether it’s a day hiking in the woods, a trip to the beach, or simply enjoying your backyard garden. Our scents help promote better well-being and mindfulness while enhancing your home with a beautiful aroma.

OUTDOOR FELLOW is committed to giving back and has donated to various non-profit organizations like Trust for Public Land, Reef Renewal Bonaire, and the Hawaii Wildlife Fund, all of whom have committed to preserving and protecting our natural world.

Portrait of Outdoor Fellow founder Patrick Jones


If you had told me in my twenties that I would start a home fragrance business from my tiny Manhattan apartment, I wouldn’t have believed you. Well, the joke’s on me! My passion for creating something with my own two hands, alongside my love of nature, and infatuation with home fragrances evolved into OUTDOOR FELLOW.

What started with a simple DIY candle-making kit turned into a passion of earning everything I could about home fragrances. After lots of trial and error, I honed my skills and began to create unique fragrances that reminded me of places I loved. I discovered that my mood would change for the better when I could smell those scents, and they motivated me to get back out to nature, whether it be a simple walk to a local park or a weekend backpacking in the mountains in upstate New York.

In 2018, I launched OUTDOOR FELLOW and never looked back. I don’t make the fragrances in my kitchen anymore but everything is still handcrafted and the vision remains the same: to create scents that make your home smell amazing, promote a better well-being, and inspire you to take a break from today's modern distractions and create new memories in the outdoors.

I hope you enjoy the products as much as I love creating them.

See you outside!
