Les Senteurs invites you to discover Altaia fragrances at their special ‘Meet the Maker’ event

At The Perfume Society, we’re always happy to share news of fragrance events we think you’d enjoy…

And on Thursday 24th September, between 3 – 7 pm, the wonderful specialist perfumery Les Senteurs invites you to meet Sebastian Alvarez Murena, one of the founders of ALTAIA, who launched the fragrance house with his wife Marina Sersale. (They’re the couple who already brought you Eau d’Italie, the scent of Positano’s Le Sireneuse – one of the world’s most romantic hotels…)

Altaia tells the story ‘of the couple’s great love, their marriage and of their uncannily entwined family histories, traced all over the world from nineteenth century Argentina to France, Spain and England.’

To quote the boutique’s so-articulate fragrance expert James Craven, ‘ALTAIA fragrances have an immediately entrancing lightness and delicacy, enfolding you in memory and myth. By Any Other Name leads us into the fairytale setting of the rose garden of Sudeley Castle, ancestral seat of Marina’s family. Sebastian’s youthful memories are personified in Don’t Cry for Me, a nostalgia for the twilit streets of Buenos Aires long ago.

Then Yu Son is an olfactory elegy of the lovers’ first meeting among the orange groves of southern Italy. A perfect triad of scents encapsulating the fusion of two families, two hearts and twinned souls…’

Sebastian will be visiting Belgravia as part of ‘Designed In SW1’, and will be making his appearance at Les Senteurs Pimlico where he looks forward to greeting you…

And we’re certainly looking forward to meeting him ourselves at what promises to be a splendid unveiling…
