Word of the President
Commonly, Perfume is frequently associated to fashion, sometimes to jewelry but rarely to art, whenever Perfume is the encounter of fashion in its marketing and art in its creation.
Thus, like a painter who melts his colors on a canvas, a perfumer creates a fragrance at marrying his essential oils. As artist, he gets from everyone’s minds a share of remembrance, a piece of dream, according to the senses subjectivity and personal sensibility.
This very state of mind leads Cofinluxe in conceiving perfumery with intuition and innovation as well as rigor and skills.
Thus, we adapt this creating process to lifestyle, artistic, fashion, jewelry and watchmaking concepts with a master’s know-how, a virtuoso’s sensibility and the understanding of our contemporary world.
