Born in Grasse, Antoine Maisondieu comes from a family with deep roots in perfumery, but he did not intend to enter the métier immediately. Rather, he became fascinated with it after years of studying law and art history.
As he puts it, “There is so much to love about perfume: creativity, poetry, elegance”. His approach is instinctive, he creates refined compositions based on strong ideas.
Antoine deserves credit for composing top-selling fragrances for Burberry, Armani, Gucci, Montblanc, Valentino, Aqua di Parma.
