It is in the mountains of Aix en Provence ,in this magic land of Provence so rich in wonderful aromas that we produce our perfumes. This is where we get our inspiration, practice our craft, and dream.
Rediscovering the unique artistry of ancient perfume masters, and faithfully following the methods passed down from generation to generation, we are once again producing flavours, accords and sensations that were thought to be lost. Each plant is dried, infused for a long time in a superfine alcohol, and then is gently pressed. This draws out the inherent essence of the plants, which our distiller mixes according to his secret formulas.
