Object of Desire: Perfumer, Quintessence Paris, France

Quintessence Paris specialized in the creation of personalized fragrances. A fascinating world we couldn’t wait to dive into.  Valentine Pozzo di Borgo, inherited her passion for perfumes. The Parisian perfumer drew inspiration from her family and added her own inspirations to create a new luxury line of candles. The Quintessence Paris collection celebrates the art of French living through exceptionally crafted scents. Each candle evokes a room in the Hotel Particulier mansion where she grew up as a child. All essences created and embodied in wax in France and we hope you will love them as much as we d0.
