As a little girl, I lived a simple, peaceful life in France between the Landes beaches and the green fields of Picardy, where the air was filled with the sweet scents of cut wheat, Barbour jackets, earth, grease, sand, pine resin, horse dung and sun-dried grass… My nose was already alive, drinking it all in, even if I wasn’t really aware of it at the time.
After 3 years spent studying cosmetology, where fragrance was covered only briefly, I decided I simply had to know more about this “concentrate.” My first proper introduction to the world of fragrance came when I met the founder of Cinquième Sens, Monique Schlienger, in 2002. And something magical happened between fragrance, Monique and myself.
Working as an apprentice perfumer under her guidance for 3 years, I began to create my own “ranges,” working alongside my colleague Anne Sophie Behaghel. Binary, tertiary and quaternary accords were followed by Cologne compositions. Bringing together methyl salicylate, cedar and iris, I was able to recreate the olfactory signature of the fields of my childhood. It was a revelation! Soon, Monique Schlienger gave me free reign to fully express myself through scents.
I stayed on at Cinquième sens as perfumer and trainer for a further 7 years.
Following an olfactory meeting of minds with Martine Denisot, we decided to create FLAIR. Over and above fragrance, we share the same passion for the history, beauty and delicateness of raw materials.
Eau de Parfum. Created with the vitality of Art nouveau, Paradis Perdu by Frapin is an ode to the vineyards around the property. The perfumer, Amélie Bourgeois, drew her inspiration from the expanses of land, conjuring effervescence with curved lines, somewhere between gushing and encircling.Frapin Perfume
Eau de Parfum (woody, spicy). Like realism... A handful of golden sand poured into alcohol that starts to glow, as if it was magic, a thousand lights, a silver shimmer similar to the sea. The disturbing impression of sand that has become almost abstract. A sand of steel, futuristic, perhaps from another world...AETHER
Eau de Parfum (floral, woody ). Did it ever exist? Was she only harvested by friendly hands this sidereal rose? One could imagine by the way she's molded, so vivid, so real. A beautiful flower in leather. A rose for girls and boys who do not love roses madly but who do not dislike to be surprised.AETHER
