Creation for l’Atelier Parfum:
I would say that it is most of all meeting with personalities behind fragrances projects. They show me their universe and tell their story by entirely exposing their own feelings.

ROSE COUP DE FOUDRE
Sketch, then build a perfume as an architect would. This is how I like to think and develop a perfume. Then I put my heart into it and I always listen to my intuitions.

Gardens are part of my story and that of my family. It was by going through them in childhood that I wanted to be a perfumer. My garden is shaped like an English garden, made of aromatic plants and fragrant roses. With the seasons, Idevelop my patience and my sense of observation. I love to watch the changing color of the leaves, smell the evanescentscents of flowers and feel the touch of the earth on my hands. Because we tend to mistreat it, I take great care of nature which has infused in me the passion for perfume.
