OLFACTORY CREATION DIRECTOR
" Create a Singular Haute Parfumerie accessible to all of them, working with beautiful materials and noble essences, that's what attracted me to LE COUVENT. This vision of the unusual perfume that we share. A new approach, different from what is generally found. "J.C. Ellena
Jean-Claude Ellena has been making his mark on the landscape of French Haute Parfumerie for over fifty years. Its meteoric rise is based on a style of rare elegance, an olfactory signature with a subtle blend of purity and precision. After his long years spent in olfactory creation at Hermès, Jean-Claude Ellena chooses his collaborations sparingly. He speaks of LE COUVENT as a crush, a story of encounters, exchanges, and points of attachment: noble materials, singularity and naturalness.
When Jean Claude Ellena talks about perfume, he talks about places that inspire her. Memories, recomposed memories thanks to smells. To compose a perfume is to write a story. A narration that takes the wearer elsewhere. Choosing a perfume is much more than a smell that you like or not. It is an evocation, a story capable of telling who we are or who we would have liked to be. It is also taking the time to discover, to appropriate the perfume, to give yourself the time, to breathe and to be inspired.
3 THINGS OF HIM If you were a work of art? A watercolor by JM Turner. An expression that sums it up: When there are no more, there are still (ideas). An object to add to your suitcase: My dream is to travel without suitcase.
