All that we like in a Cologne, and much more. There is the pleasure of the fresh and familiar haze when it comes to perfume, the elegant vivacity of the most beautiful citrus fruits and especially the impression of sensing on the skin the intense and delicate smell of orange blossoms. A sensation so intense that you think you have plunged your face in a basket of white petals and odorous flower buds. Coeur de Cologne is a pure concentrate of what makes the soul of a beautiful Eau de Cologne but with new density and simplicity. Few ingredients for them to fully express themselves: neroli supported by orange blossom absolute, bergamot and lemon, plus a hint of green and honey liatrix, musks and a few tears of incense for the depth. More than a heart, it is a quintessence of Cologne in the intense wake.

EAU DE PARFUM

 

 

 

MIZENSIR GENÈVE

Swiss Craft House founded in 1999 in Geneva by the master perfumer Alberto Morillas. The exclusive Mizensir Parfums line is the result of a profound reflection by Alberto Morillas. For many years, he has been thinking about the creation and composition of eau de parfum for both women and men. Following a personal creative process and enjoying total freedom, he aspires to achieve the perfect balance, always faithful to his imagination. For Mizensir, he was inspired by his memories of yesterday and today, his many travels, his remarkable encounters, but above all by his famous garden, his Madeleine de Proust. In his image, the Mizensir Parfums line is unique, surprising, diversified, original and unique.

 

ALBERTO MORILLAS

In the heat of Andalusia, the scents of fleur d'oranger, jasmine, rosemary and incense have bathed his youth.

Before going to school, it was traditional to comb one's hair and wear cologne, which could be bought by the litre at the pharmacy. This clean smell, characteristic of Cologne, was the first perfume that aroused his sensitivity. Having followed his parents into exile in Switzerland when he was only 11 years old, Alberto Morillas continued to visit perfume shops, which at the time was rather rare for boys of his age. His fascination with Old Spice, its cinnamon and spice scents and later L'Eau Sauvage by Dior and Un Homme by Caron were the first perfumes he wore on his own initiative.

However, he was unaware that behind each of them was a creator and therefore a profession. The turning point came in 1970, when he was studying at the Beaux-arts in Genève, reading a portrait of Jean-Paul Guerlain in Vogue radically changed his perception of the perfume profession. Without a doctorate in chemistry, he managed to convince Firmenich to offer him a position in the scientific research department on natural essences directed by Dr. Säuberli. In direct contact with the designers who entered the laboratory, Alberto Morillas perfected his knowledge of fine perfumery and began to compose his own perfumes on the sly, despite the ban. Defying the rules in force, he undertakes to present his first juice to the House's authorities... an act that marks his entry into the world of perfumery.

Seduced and surprised, Firmenich suggested to the young man who "creates perfumes without being a perfumer" that he cross the Atlantic and pursue specific training in New York. He obtained the title of Perfumer in 1977 and  with the successes of Byzantius de Rochas, CK One by Calvin Klein, Pleasures by Estée Lauder, Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani and Pi by Givenchy, Alberto Morillas received the title of Master Perfumer in 1998. Today, Alberto Morillas is one of the nine Master Perfumers of Firmenich and he constantly pushes his creative mastery to new heights.
