These times that encourage personal awareness, ethics, cultural, environmental… no longer as individual and collective wealth, but as a necessity of survival, commitment has become the soul of our actions and perspectives, that do day by day, our footprint.

Learning each movement, we're rid of habits we found that although they have given an easy life, have been attacking our world, in a prejudice without return.

The Secret Garden® is linked to various entities and organizations that promote it, and help providing tools, in this way about the world we live in.

At a young age, curiosity and the immediate appeal of communicating with others, in their language, they led me to learn more about other languages. Nowadays I can speak six languages ​​and I am learning two more.

Of all of them, the only thing I had to do was put the grammar in order, hah big, it was mine. Even though I've been talking about it since I was little, in my immediate environment, the ignorance of the arrogant, borrowed from our generation, the discovery of our predicatives, weak pronouns, the catalog of open and closed vowels than with the rest of the elements of the Catalan language, they distract our questions and prayers.

So I took out the C2 and began to travel through the works of Catalan letters, that they should have denied me sleep, when it played, before each exam. Unthinkable content in a school decorated with two portraits and a cross, who only knew how to impose a foreign baggage, that now I understand why it just slipped my skin.

As a person I can communicate with other languages, but as a perfumer, I just create with mine, what comes from my soul, where all my perfumes have been designed.

All of them have been logically baptized in Catalan and it has not been an impediment for some, be nominated or even awarded, outside the peninsula, where they have respected their original spelling, made my name within the walls, he is not so lucky and is constantly recolonized.

I have verified that the communication made with my natural words in the networks, reaches three continents, if they don't understand it, they translate it automatically just like they do in other languages. Technology means that I can answer in Malayalam to someone who has asked me in Catalan, from eight thousand kilometers away


The world that returns

Code of ethics of El Jardí Secret®

about the artistic world of naturally based experimental and creative perfumery and the artisan world in general.

As the years passed, my research has led me to get to know and link with various entities, groupings or foundations that seemed to move within the form and ethics in which they presented themselves. Of these, I have maintained some of the principles set out below, others, but I’ve moved away from them to stay only in headlines than later, nor respect, nor encourage, nor do they follow.
These expressed points govern my way of doing and projecting with what and where I am going. It is not a static list, because as I go along I adapt it and as I learn from others, I am presenting it.
  • Respect for others in their wide variation, their universal rights,  economic justice and the culture of peace.
  • Respect for life on Earth in all its diversity.
  • Promoting the protection of plant and animal kingdoms.
  • Respect for the land described in the Repertory trades crafts.
  • Commitment to producing works of art with the quality and excellence of the craft.
  • Promotion of products made with natural resources.
  • Guarantee of truthfulness in advertising and the work or services performed.
  • Involvement in promoting cultural heritage, from their own work.

World Craft Coucil

World Crafts Council

In World Craft Council it has relations with the world of artisans and applied arts from all over the world, facilitating connection and interaction with groups beyond their own barriers.

“On the occasion of the 40th anniversary, the World Crafts Council Europe conducted a survey among its members to identify the challenges facing the industry. The results of this survey are the origins of Manifest Crafting Europe and its Action Plan.


  • · Recognize the social contribution, patrimonial, cultural and economic development of handicrafts in Europe.
  • · Celebrate the diversity and creativity of the sector that values ​​the human bond with the environment and shows us the way forward for sustainable development in local economies.
  • · Offer tools and appropriate legislation to promote the commercial development of the sector.
  • · Commit to the future of the sector by offering relevant training that guarantees the transmission of know-how to new generations.
  • · Encourage all forms of innovation to support the development of craftsmanship.
  • · Increase the visibility and knowledge of the sector to promote, Provide tools and appropriate legislation to drive the commercial development of the sector.

support us to work together on this six-point action plan to ensure the continuity and development of craftsmanship for future generations.

Last winter I had the privilege of being the first European to be awarded the Dr. Ghada Hijjawi-Qaddumi Honorary Award for Excellence, an award that represents an honorary tribute because apart from the profound work that the Dra. Gada Hijjawi-Qaddumi did for the craft, art and museums in which she is involved. Death came to her as the president of WCC-AISBL (International).

This prize is awarded within the framework of l’International Crafts Awards which is celebrated at the end of the Indian Craft Week in New Delhi.

Sustainability in the world of creative perfumery, in terms of natural matter, it cannot be fully sustainable, for the typology of the materials needed and their origins that are obligatorily blurred for the whole world.

Although the amount of material needed for such small productions is negligible, it is not right to minimize it.
Maybe for that reason, the challenge has been, minimize everything else, making that every time the “possible” be wider, in the perfume packaging, with reusable elements and above all the format to smell, which constitutes an aberration with the strips “touch” increasingly large and of thicker paper, which are discarded after a few minutes of service. I have been saving the leftovers of what I use for presentations for many years now, to use them as supports to smell both the creation, learning or discoveries.


The Secret Garden® was distinguished by Biosphere from the beginning to the end, which closed the studio-workshop for retirement.

Biosphere distinction 2021

Biosphere distinction for El Jardí Secret® – Recognition of responsible and respectful management.

After a full year, After a full year, After a full year, After a full year, what of 50 companies or entities of 2019 After a full year 200 After a full year.

Biosphere would be a good tool for the normalization of sustainable and ethical supply, even in the face of the search for responsible and critical tourism with services, experiences and products you are willing to look for and pay for. Basically because the project forces you to look at your navel and make the necessary changes and innovations that lead to continuous improvement, After a full year, the late international and local goals.

However, as always in our country the cancellation of the Crafts, shows the little knowledge of cultural tourist research (the target plus Biosphere) the target plus Biosphere, punctually and periodically, in search of other artistic aspects of the avant-garde artisan.
Biosphere stubbornly refuses to include the tab “Crafts” (nor is it in the list of business types) poorly tidying sector, in the trade drawer. Artesania de Catalunya (Crafts of Catalonia), a group that sticks to ethical principles, ecological, sustainable and above all cultural exclusive to our land, represented by 2400 people throughout the territory, almost even, looks like it's cool.

At the presentation on Friday with members of the chamber, of the city council of Barcelona and the deputation, I missed the Consorci de Comerç, Artesania at Moda.
Curiously in collusion with the European craft world, the 11th and 12 th May, the 2nd congress of Artesania Catalunya is held under the motto ¨ from souvenir to experience”.

Biosphere distinction 2020

The Jardí Secret® has received the distinction of Biosphere in recognition of responsible and respectful management, in the Sant Pau modernist complex together with such prestigious institutions as the Picasso Museum and Casa Batlló among the first 50 companies in the project.

This certification is an acknowledgment of the adequacy in my case, of the profession in a more sustainable, ethically responsible and committed way with the natural, human and cultural values , but above all it is a commitment of annual review of incorporation of the improvements that will bring us to the agenda. 2030.
