The notes

From the Perfumer

In this page, I would like to share with you lots of informations about my job, ingredients, legislation, history of brands or perfumes…
I would tell you my point of view and philosophy without hiding anything.
The most important thing is to allow you choose your products knowing and understanding what they contain to correspond with your values.
It will be a pleasure to reply to your questions and comments and perhaps write a new article about a subject you want.
Have a good read and see you soon.
