Indeed, it is necessary to understand that a perfume is the addition of essences on one hand and the composition of a creator on the other hand.
Essences speak especially to our collective unconscious, that is, they return us to an experience which is not personal, but linked to the ancestral connections between Man, Nature and the existential question. They touch us in the depths of our memory, and this process was brought to light by Science. That's why it is very important to select a raw material according to its origins and its quality, because the olfactive differences are huge when one is compared with another. Besides, it's capital to favour people, such as her, who harvest following a tradition that is often forgotten by the industrial process.
Born in 1976 to an old family of perfumers, Emilie Bouge spent all her childhood in Grasse, between the flower fields and baccarat flacons of 'Bruno Court', a family company providing fragrances for European monarchies and cultivating aromatic plants throughout the Mediterranean.
She joined the International Superior Institute of Perfumes, Cosmetics and Flavours (ISIPCA) in 1996 beginning in the Laboratoire Monique Rémy (now IFF) where she developed her passion for natural raw materials, visited the most renown plantations and benefitted from an intense apprenticeship in distillation and extraction processes.
She was soon hired by Charabot (Grasse) where she composes fragrances for designer brands (Clarins, Esteban, Dali...) and personalities (Cathy Guetta - Ibiza...)
"From my first trials, each of my creations bears a part of an accomplishment in a job which I always dream of.
Through Brécourt, I wanted to freely explore all the modern contours of a polysensorial formulation.
If the olfactive emotion is a subtle amalgam between the fragrance, a person and a context; I see the context as the most important emotional vector because it recalls to mind all the memories of the other senses: this had been my major inspirational source. I have therefore put into a bottle the places and the special moments to highlight the personality of those who might take pleasure in it.
To feel a scent is to explore humanity from the inside."
