4, What is your background and values?

6, What are your inspirations?
The inspiration was born thanks to numerous meetings with the creators of major perfume brands. The desire to create a perfume brand had already been in my head for a long time. I draw on my olfactory memories of my childhood in Laos, where the rose, jasmine and frangipani flowers diffuse their subtle scent at sunset on the Mekong. I also have a deep memory of the numerous colors of the fruits, flowers and spices that supply the markets of my hometown. This was what drove me to create a range of perfumes with the master perfumers.

The creation and manufacture of the perfume extracts take place in Grasse, the cradle of French high perfumery, and the final manufacture is in the adjoining region of Provence.

12, What makes you different from your competitors on the market?
