"To create the first leather in the Collection Extraordinaire, I decided to approach this classic note in a different way, by exploring the subtle leathery accents of plants. I immediately selected cistus, which comprises an exquisite musky, leathery note. Vanilla absolute then emerged as an obvious choice, with its spicy, slightly animalistic inflections that recall warm leather,” Julien Rasquinet, Perfumer.

Since I began my training, I’ve been driven by a desire to break with the narrative. My dream is to bring something new to the world of perfumes, to tell stories as they’ve never been told before, to portray a romance, to offer up olfactory tales that are not postcards or literal transcriptions. Stories that stir the emotions, for sharing and experiencing together.
