As a child, Bruno Jovanovic, put his nose into everything - from his mother's simmering dishes, to the hidden perfumes in the blue velvet of her dressing table. He discovered a whole new world the day he came across the profusion of perfumes on display in a department store. He discovered a universe he never imagined existed, and he immediatedy felt a need to belong. In less than a year, Bruno knew the Dictionary of Perfumes by heart and since then, he has led a flawless career path fueled by talent and originality.
Sophia & Bruno were inspired by the timeless essence of falling in love and tried to capture the different emotions this magnificent feeling entails.

Perfumer Richard Herpin grew up near Grasse in the South of France, which is the heart of the perfume industry. Working alongside his father, a sculptor, led him to discover the true magic of creation. Although his original aspiration was to be an interior designer, an internship with perfumer Pierre Bourdon changed his mind. He is attracted to the fact that a perfume is never the same on two people: "Everytime I create a fragrance, I look for what makes it noticeable first, memorable second and ultimately, aesthetically pleasing. This is both instinctive and the greatest challenge of all.
When designing Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa, Richard was inspired by the purity and eternal romance of flowers, combining ingredients to capture a dewy freshness and youthful vibrancy.
This luscious scent opens with juicy notes of peach nectar, lychee and fresh cassis buds to evoke joy and optimism.
The heart of the scent, geranium and Bulgarian rose oil, infuse innocence and femininity into the fragrance.
The blend of musk and orris at the base provides a dose of comforting warmth and tenderness.
Master Perfumer Calice Becker began her training to become a perfumer in the laboratories of Roure, in Grasse, France. There, she was able to develop her sense of smell and her knowledge of the hundreds of ingredients used to create a perfume. Over the years, Calice perfected her craft at the finest perfume houses and most recently, in 2007, joined the Givaudan team. Calice loves nature and is inspired by anything that strikes a chord within her: from delectable food to the woods from her father's workshop.
When designing Fresh Rose + Peach, Calice was inspired by an exquisite bouquet of flowers she received, which contained Rose Piaget, an enduring symbol of love. The roses were so fragrant and unique that she knew she had to create a fragrance around them, to share that feeling of sheer happiness with others.
This joyful fragrance begins with a burst of crisp Italian Bergamot married with juicy Nectarine, and tinged with the delightful sophistication of Blueberry White Tea.
The romantic heart is a floral wonder; glorious Orangeflower with captivating Jasmine Sambac, capped with gorgeous Bluebell Flower.
Like a love story that never ends, the background envelops with warmth of Cashmere Woods wrapped with the elegant sensuality of White Amber and scintillating Sheer Musk.
The son of celebrated perfumer Max Gavarry, Clément was initiated into the art of essential oils at a very early age when his father brought home samples of his formulas for testing. "When I was a child, he didn't particularly try to train me in perfumery, but I was constantly surrounded by fragrance," he remembers. Living in Paris, he watched his father who brought home samples every night for everyone to try – his mother was also part of the ritual – and he listened attentively to his grandfather's anecdotes about his life as a gardener in Grasse for the Société Lautier Fils, a legendary company specialized in the distillation of raw materials. His great grandfather was a lavender cultivator and distiller.
Although he decided on an olfactive career, Clément Gavarry never really saw himself as a perfumer, so he started off in the field of chromatography and the analysis of raw materials. He began studying chemistry and later obtained his diploma from ISIPCA, the elite school of perfumery in Versailles. A work experience in New York in 1998 served as an epiphany, and "becoming a nose suddenly seemed obvious."
Of all the legendary perfumes, Clément would have loved to have created Shalimar or L'Heure Bleue by Guerlain. If the American market made him an expert in sandalwood, fruity and vanilla notes, Clément also loves the luxuriance of patchouli, all the intonations of jasmine that remind him of his origins, and neroli, which before it became the essence of orange blossom he is so fond of, was the name of his childhood sailboat. Clément hopes that one day he will go back to Grasse to create handmade perfumes with all the wonderful materials of the beloved region.
