I chose to make natural perfumes as someone chooses to work with precious metals and rare gemstones instead of plastic beads and pearls of colored glass. The first reason has been that at the beginning of my perfumer’s life, I experienced severe allergies with some synthetic raw materials. The second reason is that I always wanted the real thing at any cost, and in the world of perfumery the real simply means the natural. There has been no ideology in my choice, only discovering the truth.
An emerald is more beautiful than a piece of green glass, it is not a question of taste but of understanding. Children love kitsch jewelry made with glass, nickel and plastic and there are some real artistic masterpieces of such jewelry made with these materials. However, real ladies wear real jewels and a bride would never accept anything else than a golden ring and an real diamond.
