MATIERE PREMIERE STANDS FOR
“Natural raw material is the essential basis of creation, for a perfumer. Its selection according to the terroirs, growth and transformation methods (from which its quality flows) is the starting point for an extraordinary creation; it is at the center of my conception, of a perfumer’s work.
It is part of our promise, and MATIERE PREMIERE holds it in its very name.”
In 2016, Aurélien Guichard together with his family founded a Rose Centifolia organic farm (Ecocert®) in the Grasse region. He is the only Perfumer to own and produce his own Rose Centifolia.
Following a family and regional know-how, he cultivates thousands of Roses on an exceptional terroir, recognized as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2018.
