For him, a perfume is nothing without a structure and without a strong, original, daring accord. He is fascinated by the emotions that a perfume can convey so he seeks in every project, to create from an inspiration, the most beautiful fragrant story.

She became passionate about the fascinating field and its infinite possibilities, set up her mind that this will be the essence of her career.
