It’s impossible to know exactly why, but at the age of five Stéphanie Bakouche proclaimed « When i grow up, i want to make perfumes!«
That inexplicable moment of childhood clarity, like being struck by lighting, would set her course in life.
Even before beginning her studies in 2000, Stéphanie started her career at eighteen years old at LT Piver, an historic perfume house. During her studies at ISIPCA she worked with renowned companies like Takasago and Givaudan in fine fragrance evaluation.
As a young graduate, she worked in every job possible related to her passion : beginning on the sales floor, to quality control, regulation and legislation, creation (Invasion Barbare for MDCI in 2005; Bataille de Fleurs for Cloon Keen Atelier in 2010; Rose Privée for L’Artisan Parfumeur in 2015), development (Noir Exquis for L’Artisan Parfumeur, nominated for the 2016 Fifi Awards), not to mention training and even the creation of perfumery workshops to share the history and her passion of perfumery with the public. Passing on and sharing knowledge is close to Stéphanie’s heath, and since 2013 she has been an active member and curator of the Osmothèque _the repository of fragrances in Versailles. The fierce love, strength and passion give her a uniquely eclectic approach in her work, allowing her to make the most of all the rewarding and enriching encounters throughout her career. She honed her skills studying with the brilliant and uncompromising Bertrand Duchaufour, for seven years. Now based in Grasse, a vital step in the path of perfumery, this young perfumer creates Sensaba, the home of her future creations, among which we will be thrilled to count Mon seul Désir and Fugit Amor for Jul et Mad.
