Inspired by a fleeting whiff of angelicas gathered just after a shower, Jean-Claude Ellena's creation plays out like a chamber music arrangement. One detects the sparkling, spicy, refreshing notes of this unusual flower, softened by a hint of juniper berries and jasmine, and drying down to musk and cedar. Angéliques sous la Pluiea splash of emotion.
Born into a family of perfumers from Grasse, Jean-Claude Ellena 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 sweaterare his greatest inspiration. Jean Claude Ellena never raises his voice, although he is heard loud and clear. His signature is simple, minimalist and modern. His style is often compared to watercolors or chamber music.
