"I love travelling with my family, discovering new places! Montreux is a wonderful place that combines natural contrasts and triggers an incredible amount of creative impulses. When creating the fragrance, I was inspired by the fascinating lake landscape paired with the strength of the alpine mountains. The result was a fragrance that reflects freshness and elegance, in the form of watery, clear and cool notes, combined with floral highlights from the Alpine meadows."

"My idea for this fragrance was the start of spring in Provence. The moment when the small village of Grasse awakens from its hibernation and turns into a blooming metropolis of fragrance. A bouquet of white flowers paired with the oil of the bitter orange tree and accents of lemon oil and pink pepper. "

"The exotic locations of Costa Rica were my inspiration. Heavenly beaches and the green, woody notes of the plantation forests. The aroma of roasted coffee formed the main focus. “El Grano de Oro”, as coffee is called in Costa Rica, is emblematic of this country, whose coffee is of the highest quality. Paired with warm, woody notes and the opulent scent of frangipani blossom, the result is an irresistibly sensual gourmand fragrance."

Véronique Nyberg

"Cuba is an attitude to life! Caribbean sound, cigars, rum - all of this is emblematic of this island. She cast a spell on me as I immersed myself into the pulsating life of Havana's streets. I tried to capture this mood in a unique fragrance. The smoky note of tobacco leaves drying in the Caribbean sun. Leathery notes that remind me of the heavy armchairs in a dim bar where I drank Cuban rum."

"For me the Orient is a place full of mysteries. When I explored the souks of Oman, another world opened up to me. A wonderful inspiration for my fragrance, which starts with a spicy top note of saffron and pink pepper and ends in a woody, warm base of patchouli and balsamic, oriental notes. An experience that I will remember both mentally and olfactorily!"
