Pure seduction of a perfume conveying a wild magnetism

Encelade is a natural satellite of Saturn, discovered in 1789, another bluish-colored planet covered with snow, fresh water and probably a seismic activity. Beside oneiric thought that Encelade could be one day covered by a green jungle, the mythologic figure embodies power, rebellion and character, the satellite represents freshness, sweetness and purity.
In the mythology, Encelade, son of Gaia (the Earth) and Uranus (the Sky), is brought down by Athena after Giants attempt to climb Mount Olympus to reach the gods. Legend says he’s been buried under the lands of Sicily and that he still breath through the fumes and eruptions of Etna Volcano.

After learning patterns, cutting and sewing as he was studying textile engineering, he designed his first collection in Lille in 2006. This success then led Marc-Antoine Barrois to work with Dominique Sirop, Jean-Paul Gaultier and Jean-Claude Jitrois before creating his own Maison de Couture for men.
