Valentine Pozzo di Borgo, descendant of the House of Givaudan, received the love of perfume as her inheritance. Her childhood memories are all associated with a specific perfume: the vials in her grandfather’s laboratory, the Wednesday afternoons spent at her mother’s perfume shop, the long walks in the Alps, and the Corsican maquis… When she creates olfactory universes, Valentine Pozzo di Borgo perpetuates this family tradition: she collaborates daily with her mother, Sandrine Givaudan, and the “noses” trained by her grandfather. Like families of painters or musicians, the trade secrets are passed on from generation to generation through delicate alchemy. In 2008, she founded a House of creations for scented candles.
