To pay tribute to the origins of Mohamed Rebatchi I drew inspiration from my journey through the Tassili desert in south east Algeria, the traditional region of the Tuareg Ajjer or Tuareg people of the West, and the olfactory sensations I experienced. Waking up in the morning after a night sleeping in a tent, I could smell the tea brewing and cherbet Algerian lemonade, as well as the leather of the camels’ saddles. A true invitation to travel. - Aliénor Massenet, Perfumer
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.
Aliénor Massenet, rebel in wonderland.
Extremely independent, Aliénor Massenet found her ideal means of expression in perfume-making. She draws inspiration from her feelings, an encounter, a book, a show, an exhibition, a trip or simply by wandering through the streets. Her creations often embody a strong contrast, and her style is rather abstract, highlighting duality in a single fragrance.
