About the perfumer:

Born into a family of perfumers from Grasse, Jean-Claude Ellan was introduced
to the art of developing fragrances as a teenager. Self-taught, he defines his
creations as a “poetry of memory”. Everyday smells – wax floors, clean sheets,
skin, an old sweater – are some of his great inspirations. His signature is simple,
minimalist, and modern.
As a disciple and close friend of the legendary Edmond Roudnitska (creator
of “Le Parfum de Thérèse”), Jean-Claude Ellena began his career with a
minimalistic approach to perfumery. Since then, he has developed this
approach into his own distinctive style, which is continually informed by his
elegant and quiet way of being and has been compared by his contemporaries
to watercolor sketches and chamber music. Jean-Claude says that a perfume
must be like “a soft caress; nothing must shock, nothing must shout”.
