Philippe Collet grew up on the Atlantic coast of France. The smells of the seashore were his first childhood sensory memories.
A lover of nature, he further enriched his olfactory experiences in wild landscapes. He has always been particularly fascinated by the complexity and beauty of infinite flora. This led him to the decision to learn how to create perfumes that tell stories, by drawing fully on his sensitivity and love of fragrances.
Mr. Collet is now perfumer at Expressions Parfumées in Grasse, the birthplace of perfume. He continues to develop his creativity thanks to his curiosity and open mind. He is passionate about travel and meeting new people. He loves to explore the riches of other cultures and experience new sensations.
He is generous, a gourmet and a sophisticated cook. He likes to experiment with ingredients to create surprising combinations for his family and friends…all sources of inspiration that encourage Mr. Collet to create original perfumes that are full of emotion.
