The pinnacle of aromatic exploration, perfume has inspired me throughout life. it is the most powerful sense in terms of its imprint on your memory. The nose is the conduit to discover beauty, nuance and delicacy, along with power, emotion, and style. I see the creation of perfume and the translation of our passion through scent as a very exciting challenge that extends naturally from our origins in the vineyards, and our expertise as vintners. And while it is wine that refined our aromatic palate, perfume opens the world of smell to a new dimension of discovery and a new spectrum of expression. And upon exploring the new aromatic dimensions of perfume, we return to the bouquet of wine with an even deeper, more precise and refined understanding of its expression.
Born in Burgundy, in the village of Vougeot – the cradle of the Grand Crus – with the vineyards as my backyard and the cellars my playground, I have been discovering the world through smell since birth. Tempted by aromas of the vineyard, the garden, the woods behind the vines, the cellars and the countryside – aroma has always been a part of my existence. My earliest memories of wine – of the grape transformed – was through the sense of smell, the experience of bouquet of wine from its creation in nature to its ultimate expression in the glass. My dream to create a perfume has been ever present … for it is aroma that most powerfully evokes those childhood moments of the first sensory discovery of the world.
