French cuisine is one of the finest on the planet and is recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage. It wouldn’t be the same, however, without its aromatic herbs, which must come from the French region of Provence. This is the inspiration for Aromes, our new collection which includes magnificent fabrics embossed with floral motifs,
a geometrical Jacquard print and velvet, which are named after the different Provençal herbs.

We present you the creators of perfumes. An exciting world where men have always predominated, with big names like Alberto Morillas or Oliver Cresp.
But today they can already affirm that there are as many men as women, thanks in part to great women perfumers such as Joséphine Catapano, Sophia Grojsman or Germaine Cellier, who made their way into this art.
Here come great French perfumers, men and women who have grown up among aromas and who delight us with exquisite fragrances and emotions.
Françoise was born in Grasse, a charming town near the French Alps, in a family that was dedicated to the perfume activity. She is Olivier Cresp’s sister, also recognized nose. Author of well-known perfumes such as Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile, Azzaro Silver Black, Comme des Garçons Palisander, Giorgio Armani Gio or Hermès Eau d’Orange Verte.
They call him the Mozart of perfumery. He is an alchemist considered a great perfectionist. Like Caron, he was born in Grasse, into a family of perfumers. Her father was a perfumer and Ellena learned the trade with him. Since 2004, Ellena has been the exclusive nose of the Maison Hermès, where she has already created more than two dozen fragrances. Among the most remembered: Jour d’Hermès or Terre d’Hermes for men; Voyage d’Hermes.
Born in the Picardy region of France, Flipo discovered her passion for the family garden and cooking before studying at Isipca, a renowned perfumery school in Versailles. Since then she has been the creator of world hits such as L’Homme by Yves Saint Laurent, La Vie Est Belle by Lancôme, Aqua di Giogia by Giorgio Armani and several by Paco Rabanne, such as Lady Million in co-creation with Beatrice Piquet, also nose and an icon of contemporary perfumery.
Born in Cannes, but spent his childhood in the city of Grasse, just like Ellena and Caron. His father had a pharmacy there and created his own eau de cologne, called Eau de Grasse Impériale. One of his clients was Edmond Roudnitska, a master perfumer and close friend of Christian Dior, who created Diorissimo and Eau Sauvage, the first fragrances of the Dior maison. Every summer during his teens, François Demachy apprenticed to Roudnitska until he became the exclusive nose of Cristian Dior Parfums.
‘Perfumers are writers, composers and performers. We converse in a language that many understand, but few can speak. I transform what I feel into a musical score with essences as notes’. François Demarchy.
