Olfactive Family: Floral Violet Leather
Key notes: Violet Leaves – Iris Butter – Leather from Grasse
Description: The classic pairing of iris and violet is joined by the depth of Grasse leather, paying tribute to the origins of French perfumery.
"Leather as soft as satin-smooth skin meets violet leaf and iris for a refined and sensual combination."
Known as the international capital of perfume, few people remember that Grasse was actually reputed for its leatherwork in the 16th century, particularly the master glove-makers, whose creations often had a powerful and animal smell. To counteract this aroma, the leather was impregnated with flowers such as iris, violet, or rose, which flourished particularly well in the area of Grasse.
Fabrice Pellegrin, who was raised in Grasse, wanted to pay tribute to the village where he grew up, choosing leather notes as a nod to the tanneries of yesteryear.
The violet leaves create a link between the velvety leather and the bitterness of the mastic tree, while the iris brings a touch of elegance and roundness to Cuirissime, containing its animal nature.
Fabrice Pellegrin draws his inspiration from the heart of nature and offers an olfactory journey with his creations. Son of a perfumer, he gets his signature from his childhood when he went to pick flowers with his maternal grandmother in the hills of Grasse.
Fabrice Pellegrin affirms his predilection for niche brands in which he finds a new refinement. Today a creative perfumer at Firmenich, he was recently named Best Perfumer of the Year 2017 by the profession.
Fabrice Pellegrin has created three fragrances from Maison JUS: Cuirissime, Rosamonda and Saupoudrage.
