Change is now

You never know when real change might occur and impact your life. Or maybe, it is the other way round - real change happens everyday but we let it come and go most of the times despite the uncomfortable situations it puts us through again and again.

In the past years I have ignored opportunities that came my way, or maybe I was blind to them. Thinking about a deep change always provoked in me an irrational fear.

Change often comes with fears of the unknown. I was taught to be cautious of the unknown, as it is believed to be full of dangers. But this is not true.

Change becomes full of positive energy once you have gathered strength to silence the inner voice that influences you to stay in your comfort zone.

Strangely, changing in order to be happy is feared more than staying in adverse situations and suffering repeatedly. Maybe because despite the unpleasantness of it all, familiarity provides comfort. You become used to the suffering.

The decision to change comes without really thinking about it. If you think too much, you might end up not doing anything. This moment comes to you naturally. After all the previous opportunities you did not see, one comes that you do not let go. So, you jump into the void, and try to imagine what your life could be after that.

Hopefully friends are of great help in such a transition to maintain a certain sense of humanity and to make these fears more surmountable.

At the early stages of change, you can hardly see what would come next. This time is crucial for questioning everything. I asked myself what is important and what is not in finding my almost forgotten dreams and trying to fulfill them.

“Everything you can imagine is real.”— Pablo Picasso

Change is bringing so much positivity into my life right now I would not have even imagined a few months ago.

I will be busy in the upcoming months doing what I like the most.

After 17 years of working in sales and marketing positions in the fragrance sector, I am back to school to learn another facet, the one of designing perfumes, an artistic activity that has a lot in common with photography.

As a photographer, the first time I shared my pictures with an audience left a lasting impression on me. I realised that my initial intention when I took those photos differed from what the audience saw in them. Despite looking at the same image, we have different interpretations and this fascinates me.

It seems that fragrances go far beyond a difference of views. Since perfumes are invisible, they sparkle imagination and connect instantly to personal memories that are certainly far from the original intention of the perfumer.

The however still abstract idea of stirring people’s memories through fragrances I might create one day is so moving to me.

“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” — Vincent Van Gogh

I surprise myself by envisioning my life as a succession of sensible activities to express and share my sense of beauty through photography and perfumery.

Let’s believe my dreams to make it happen!

Un must

Ce parfum est juste extraordinaire, parfaitement mixte, il est d'une classe sans pareil, définitivement adopté, merci pour ce bijou.

Perfect for late autumn and winter

I will start by saying that I will set this bottle aside until late autumn as to my thinking this is very much a cold weather scent. Gone are any hints of sweetness and flowers, what remains is clean and crisp, this is very much an outdoor scent. No single component rises above the other, nor is this overpowering in any sense. I can imagine wearing this outdoors in the cold with a sweater on, or indoors curled up near a fire.

Lovely scent that captures the essence of outdoors

My wife and I had your previous scents, and so I was keen to try the new ones. This is the first of the three, and I'm not disappointed at all. The opening is a very fresh green outdoor scent, and a very natural one as well, I was curious how the sesame would come into play. I can detect it but it's a very harmonious one. That gives way to jasmine, and while as a guy florals don't always work for me, I've always enjoyed jasmine. This is not an overpowering scent and certainly one I could safely wear to the office.

Original et unique

J'avais eu l'occasion d'essayer ce parfum par un échantillon (parmi 4) offert par des amis ; dès que je l'ai senti, j'ai su qu'il était fait pour moi ; j'ai complètement craqué sur le fenouil, en particulier, présent mais pas envahissant. En plus, le flacon est très élégant ; cela faisait longtemps que je n'avais pas craqué pour un parfum. Bref, je l'adore !

Sent divinement bon

J’ai rencontré Christèle au marché de Créateurs de la Grande Motte, juste en face de mon stand… Et quelle belle découverte ! Chaque parfum est unique et ne ressemble à rien de ce que je connais par ailleurs. Celui qui a volé mon cœur est Slow Life, unique en son genre. J’ai toujours été en quête du parfum qui me rappellerait l’odeur du jasmin au printemps qui embaumait le pas de ma porte enfant, chaque année. J’en ai testé plein, j’en ai parfois, exceptionnellement, trouvé des bons… et celui excelle. On s’y croirait ; un jasmin, mais avec un côté moins sucré que « d’habitude », plus vert, très fleuri à la fois, comme sur l’arbre en réel. Bravo

J'aime beaucoup

J'ai découvert ce parfum dans une galerie à Collioure il y a deux ans et je l'aime toujours autant. C'est surprenant car je n'ai jamais porté de parfum auparavant. Merci.

Offert à Noël il y a je crois deux ans j'ai été transportée par cette odeur originale, une explosion, je suis fan. Du coup, maintenant que j'ai trouvé votre site, je vais tester les autres 🙂

mon parfum

Je pense avoir trouvé ce que je cherche depuis longtemps : IMPERMANENCE. Merci
