A CONTEMPORARY AND SINGULAR HIGH PERFUMERY
By Jean-Claude Ellena, Creative Fragrance Director
« The collection of 'Parfums Remarquables' is an invitation to discover other places, other horizons. A port, an island, deserts, oceans... To go on a journey and transform unknown lands into perfumes, this is an idea I like. This collection traces the ambiances of these legendary ports where Louis Feuillée, botanist of Louis XIV and emblematic figure of Le Couvent des Minimes, cast anchor. »
