To offer the best perfume, Marie Jeanne is involved in every step of the process from the planting to the final fragrance. Enhanced with natural essential oils that are carefully sourced, each one has its own originality. The entire production is hand produced in limited quantities in Grasse.
As Part of the intangible cultural heritage site by UNESCO since 2018, Grasse is the world capital of perfume. It is internationally known for its emblematic flowers: the tuberose, the jasmine grandiflorum and the centifolia rose.
Born in Grasse, Georges Maubert has been immersed in the world of perfume since his childhood, and is conscious of the treatment of each local flower, right up to the composition of scents. He is part of the fifth generation of the Robertet company, world leader in natural raw materials. Since 1850, his family has worked in the perfume industry as farmers, chemists, perfumers, and sourcing experts. This ancestral knowledge has been mastered and developed to offer you the most beautiful fragrances.
Since his youth, Georges has been aware of the numerous scents of the Grasse region, especially those of the rose fields and the orange blossom fougassettes of the Maison Venturini. He enjoyed wandering in the Robertet laboratories and playing the apprentice chemist whilst weighing ‘magical formulas’ with the laboratory technicians.
At the age of 14, he did his first internship at the Chanel creation laboratory supervised by the perfumers Jacques Polge and François Demachy. This enriching experience confirmed his interest in the world of perfume. Then, in parallel with his studies at the Instituto Marangoni, he worked as a marketing assistant for the Robertet group in Paris.
