Perris Monte Carlo – Les Parfums de Grasse – Jasmin de Pays
Paying Tribute to the art of French Perfumery
An exclusive fragrance collection paying tribute to the history and unique craftmanship of the art of perfumery in Pays de Grasse. In 2018, UNESCO inscribed the Regions of Grasse on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in light of their exceptional knowledge associated with the cultivation of perfume plants, the knowledge and processing of natural raw materials, and the art of perfume composition. The Nose behind this project is the legendary perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena.
« My devotion to jasmine lies with my childhood in Grasse. As a child, I used to harvest jasmine at dawn, picking the white porcelain flowers one by one, their smell was green, transparent and intoxicating. By noon, the last of the last white petals released a warm smell of orange blossom. By night, the forgotten flowers, now yellowed, emanated a happy, deep animalic fragrance. If its perfume was given rhythm by the time of day, then its nature never changed. Admiring this work of nature was my inspiration to imagine the perfume in a different way, to play with its elements and change its effects to make it unique and forever Jasmine. »
