I would like to introduce myself with scents that inspire me, those uncovered me every day a lot of ways to follow , because nothing can better explain the meaning of sensations , than a smell.
Fragrances, odors and perfums, maintain a private communication with each of us, using a language without words, that doesn't need any translation.
Nothing can speak more about ourselves, that in what we spend, stubbornly, our energy. In my case , first perfume perfume in general (mar, cafè matinee, wood) and then subjects natural materials has marked my life like breadcrumbs , on the road that led me to create El Jardí Secret®.
My way of working is anchored in the past : drop by drop , long macerations that facilitate synergies and short productions . Working tailored , restoring former uses perfume and promoting their perception outside of the bottles.
I understand that the perfume is a tool too rich in sensations, not directly be involved in areas where emotions come to the surface . That's why in 2009 I started this journey , the perfume linked to various artistic and cultural events, using its unique language. Of all I would like to emphasize the following:
