My UniverseARTISANAL PERFUME MAKING
Because creating means letting your imagination run wild…
…to offer you pleasure and emotions through elegant and original fragrances…
…because your desires are also our inspiration.
Scents in general and perfumes in particular are very closely linked with my own experiences in life. As a child, our family home overlooked a cliff several hundred metres high that gave way to the Atlantic Ocean below. On a clear day, you could see the bluish silhouette of the island of Madeira appear on the horizon.
My first olfactory joys date back to this period.
As a hypersensitive and creative child, I spent most of my time in our garden, a truly life-sized laboratory for the senses: flowery, lush and abundantly fragrant. During this time, I discovered that scents, sounds and colours respond to each other, forming a harmonious whole with a life of its own.
On this autumnal day, a dazzling epiphany dawned on me. My childhood garden had magically reappeared inside the bottle, defying time and space. The enchantment that followed allowed the mist to clear over a previously unknown route. A new chapter in my professional life was about to begin.
Initially self-taught, I continued my apprenticeship with perfumers who were passionate about their art, notably Madame Clémentine Humeau and Monsieur Nicolas de Barry. At the same time, I decided to widen my sources of aesthetic inspiration by studying at the Royal Institute of Art History, along with a course at the International College of Aromatherapy.
As someone who is passionate about the arts and literature, my main sources of inspiration come from these domains. As a synesthete, I have always perceived my surrounding reality through the prism of scents. For me they have colours, shapes and textures.
I now want to share this love of perfume with men and women who are looking for authentic fragrances, and who hope to discover the magnificent craft of perfumery, savoring beauty without using the eyes.
