Cécile Zarokian graduated from ISIPCA, she was trained for four years in Robertet, at first in Grasse, then in Paris. She was still a trainee when she created her first fragrance, Amouage Epic Woman. In 2011, Cécile decided to found her own company, CECILE ZAROKIAN SARL, and to set up her laboratory in Paris, in order to be able to dedicate her entire time to working freely as an independent perfumer.
That's how she has created around forty fragrances for various brands of the niche perfumery market, such as Jovoy Paris, MDCI, Laboratorio Olfattivo, Jul et Mad, Masque Fragranze, or the entire Château de Versailles scented candles collection. In addition to that, Cécile has developed an artistic project with an illustrator, leading to an exhibition in Paris, which was part of the event Rives de la Beauté, then in London in 2013, and at the Triennale di Milano for Esxence 2014: the objective of [IP]01 was to correlate 6 visuals and 6 perfumes, in perfect harmony. One of the two universes gives birth to the other, then reverse: paint brush following olfactory narration, nose lead by sketch.

With the highly concentrated Epic 56 Woman Extrait, perfumer Cecile Zarokian displays her prowess for striking the difficult yet marvelous balance of extremes at a high dosage:...Amouage
Material is a paradox – through materiality, it evokes immateriality, teaching us to look beyond appearances and that what matters is often unseen; an experience akin to standing in a grove and descrying in the sweltering shade a multitude of textures and manifold hues of wood and leaf and bark; all coming together into one.Amouage
Eau de Parfum. This spicy oriental fragrance is inspired by the eternal legends of the ancient Silk Road from China to Arabia. In the mystical twilight with the desert wind blowing against her veil she follows the guiding light in search of the long lost aria. Beyond truth and immortality a Legend is BornAmouage
A dreamy white floral centered around gardenia, the queen of tropical flowers. Nuit Andalouse opens with a sweet, delicate violet that perfectly sets the stage for the euphoric gardenia ahead, like a flower girl dropping petals before the radiant bride steps down the aisle.MDCI
