In her workshop in Grasse’s old town, Jessica creates her fragrances the traditional way, as an independent perfumer, for her own label, 1000 Flowers, as well as for personalized, commercial, or private projects.
Ever since I arrived in Grasse in 2007 to study at the Institut de Parfumerie de Grasse, I’ve wanted to be an active part of the perfumery community, which is so traditional and emblematic for this region. Grasse Expertise is a group of highly respected companies and individuals, each of whom has a unique and important role in the very specialized field of perfumery/cosmetics/flavorings. These Grasse industries are unlike any others in the world by virtue of this collective network and the innovation that has been encouraged here, particularly since the Industrial Revolution. As a freelance perfumer and artistic creator, with a special interest in natural ingredients and ecological innovation, I’m delighted to be part of this group. It’s an opportunity to collaborate and support the development of the unique ecosystem to be found in the Grasse region.
