Interesting Facts

Une Rose - a rose: This could be the imaginary title that skilfully describes the life's work of star perfumer Edouard Fléchier. He is considered a free spirit and an absolute natural talent among the perfumers of his generation, who is not afraid to experiment. Edouard Fléchier was born in Grasse in 1949. After graduating from school, he first studied natural sciences before returning to the capital of beautiful fragrances. There, he attended the Roure Bertrand Dupont Perfumery Academy, which later became known as Givaudan's cadre school. His creativity and unmistakable talent were quickly discovered and cherished, which is why The Roure Bertrand company, therefore, hired him on the spot after his graduation.

By the mid-1980s, he was already enjoying one success after another. His early successes from this period include "Davidoff pour Homme," "Poison" for Christian Dior (together with Jean Guichard), and "Gomma" for Etro. In the 1990s, he was fascinated with "Chant du Cœur" for Shiseido, "Havana" for Aramis, "Vendetta pour Homme" for Valentino or "C'est la vie!" for Christian Lacroix. His creative highlights include "Lys Méditerranée" for Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle in 2000 and his very own signature fragrance "Une Rose" for the same exclusive line. With "Une Rose", Edouard Fléchier created his ticket to the ultimate Olympus of perfumers. Indeed, his sketch for this extraordinary fragrance experiment envisaged the scent of the legendary Périgord truffle as its main ingredient. This earthy and extremely woody essence needed a strong, yet feminine counterpart to exist and convince in the overall package as a women's fragrance. This was found in the best rose extract ever - a Turkish rose.

This composition is in parallel with the working method and creative potential of Edouard Fléchier. Insiders have always attested to a certain desire for opulence, but this is exclusively limited to his bouquets. Edouard Fléchier's private and personal life remains unknown. A passionate "nose" prefers to communicate without words, and through the flower.
