The very first woman and Italian to be accepted into the Grasse Institute of Perfumery, Maria Candida discovered her special talent when she was just a child, but it was only later in life, when she was living in Valle D’Aosta, that she developed her special talents.
Each of Maria Candida Gentile’s perfumes has a story to tell, developing intuitively around the themes of memories, places, plentitudes and artistic evocations.
Maria Candida Gentile’s foundations come from the great classic schools of perfumery, and she remains faithful to the use of strictly natural molecules, which have been carefully selected and handled so to preserve the full expressive power.
