« It is reminiscent of a walk in Vendée, through the Saint Hilaire de Riez forest, where Mohamed Rebatchi spent his summers as a child. In the shadows of the forest, the spicy salty freshness of pink pepper essence, emphasized by a touch of rose essence, blend together with somber May rose absolute. As the wind picks up, brightness returns carried by a note of freesia that merges with bergamot. Iris draws a vertical floral woody line to the maritime pines, swept away by the breeze and brimming with sap heated by the sun, taking on incense and balsam fir accents. »
In creating its first perfumes and candles, Maison Rebatchi surrounded itself with the greatest perfumers and best artisans in the discipline. From their choice of high-quality raw materials to compose their concoctions to the beautiful design of the perfume bottles, the creations of Maison Rebatchi are undeniably emblazoned with the seal of excellence.
For the composition and manufacture of their perfumes, Maison Rebatchi works with Accords & Parfums, the company that furnishes flowers for most auteur perfumers. Located in the hills of the French town of Grasse, Accords & Parfums exudes a unique savoir-faire. The perfume lab also grows and harvests their own authentic May Rose Absolute. So, it was only natural that in Accords & Parfums, Maison Rebatchi found an echo of their endless quest for perfection and beautiful raw materials.
Works of art.
The perfumes are displayed in artful bottles designed by Pierre and Jules Dinand. They decided to adorn the bottle with a mashrabiya motif to highlight the creator’s origins and the DNA of the French perfume house. Delicate, symbolic, and timeless raised petals engraved over the entire bottle reflect light, add rhythm and create an illusion without the eye being able to follow a specific movement.
This is the story of a perfume House that could have begun, like so many others, with “once upon a time there was a perfumer, or the son of a perfumer…". However, this was not at all the case. Maison Rebatchi is the fruit of a life-long dream. That of Mohamed Rebatchi, a young Franco-Algerian who grew up in a working-class suburb north of Paris.
Karine Chevallier, soul sister.
Excelling in giving movement and color to the most subtly intertwined olfactory emotions, this artistic perfumer has always been on the same wavelength as Mohamed’s innate olfactory gift. Touched by Mohamed Rebatchi’s modesty and fully unique, sincere approach, Karine Chevallier wanted to recreate this facet of his personality through a fragrance developed on the theme of childhood, as the point of departure of his fabulous adventure.
