Born in Annecy, the countryside and the grandmother's garden marked Patrice’s youth and rose his interest in plants and botany. A passion that will lead him to perfumes and scents, after studies in biology and chemistry. Nevertheless, these disciplines being too general and lacking the artistic aspect he was longing for, he decided to join the École Supérieure du Parfum in Paris.
The smell of plane trees at the end of summer, of honeysuckle and lilacs blown by the wind, the loads of narcissus and their equine hints, the pines warmed under the sun and mingling with the mineral scent of fig trees... If plants and evocations of nature remain his primary source of inspiration and favourite subject, Patrice is also interested in the history of perfumes.
Studying and understanding the context of creations of the more abstract olfactory forms that marked modern perfumery allow him to integrate the architecture of fragrances over the decades so he can undertake the realization of his own creations. 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.
