EVERY SCENT HAS A STORY
I create fragrances because I am passionate about scents.
Raised in an orchid farm in Davao City, I have always been intrigued by the scent of flowers and plants.
And they have become my language to express my feelings and emotions. I believe that scent captures
my purest desires and intentions.
I create fragrances as an expression of Filpino art.
In the late 1800s the Philippines was considered Reina de las Perfumes en Asia- Queen of Perfumes in Asia. Locally-made perfumes were sold in Europe while European perfume houses created fine fragrances especially for the Philippine Market. In 1880, Philippine ylang-ylang oil created a sensation at the Paris Exposition earning a gold medal for its spellbinding scent. This resulted to the use of our ylang-ylang oil in famous perfumes including the early versions of Chanel No. 5.
It has been my mission to put us back into the global arena of fine fragrances. I wish to be at the forefront of enlivening this forgotten art where every whiff is a celebration of what is uniquely Filipino.
