Céline Ellena, daughter of master perfumer Jean Claude Ellena, isn’t, by own admission, a big fan of oriental type fragrances. How did she manage then, to create something as enchanting and smouldering as “Oriental Lounge”? We think that it was by deciding to approach the creative process as an exciting challenge and an opportunity to bring something novel to the oriental game. It is difficult enough to be innovative within a classical structure, yet Céline managed to breathe new life in through discarding some elements and the addition of others, more unusual and modern. She replaced the unctuous, creamy sweetness of vanilla with the more transparent, nuttier and drier sweetness of the tonka bean and decided to juxtapose the voluptuous, resinous-balsamic elements against the green, raspy, slightly metallic touch of caloupilé, bridging the contrasts with a powdery, peppery rose. The results is a bewitching composition, intensely sensual but with a fluidity that is thoroughly modern and a lushness that is never overbearing. It feels like a somnolent afternoon spent lounging on silks and warm cashmere, nibbling on chocolate covered hazelnuts and delicate pastries infused with rosewater, while the molten, amber glow of the approaching sunset filters through the intricately carved sandalwood screens. Heavenly!
Founded in 2000 by Jean-Claude Ellena and Thierry De Baschmakoff (designer), The Different Company has successfully established itself in the market of the Haute Parfumerie with a unique signature: a brand that defies the codes of perfumery by celebrating the pleasure of the senses and the beauty of trails.
Today, The Different Company embodies the Haute Parfumerie in its most noble meaning. The brand yearns to explore new territories of creation, and extract its quintessence. The Different Company always scrupulously makes sure to create trails without accepting any compromise with product excellence, by letting the creators have total freedom and by always exploring further.
For The Different Company beauty is an attitude, a quest for perfection that magnifies an olfactory sense of the different. The fragrances tell of their desire to be unique and modern, and exist only to appeal because above all, the purpose of perfume is pleasure.
