Luca Maffei

LUCA OFFICIALLY BEGAN IN THE WORLD OF FRAGRANCES IN 2007, AT THE END OF HIS CLASSIC AND ECONOMIC STUDIES. GROWING UP IN THE FAMILY COMPANY, HE IS FASCINATED BY THE CHARM OF RAW MATERIALS AND THE ALCHEMY WITH WHICH THEY COMBINE, DECIDING TO DEEPEN HIS PASSION WITH A TRAINING EXPERIENCE ABROAD. HE THEREFORE BEGINS AN INDIVIDUAL JOURNEY WITH FRANÇOISE MARIN, PERFUMER AND FORMER DIRECTOR OF ROURE PERFUMERY SCHOOL.

HE STUDIES RAW MATERIALS WITH THE JEAN CARLES METHOD. HE IMMEDIATELY STARTS EXPERIMENTING WITH AN INTERNSHIP IN A FRAGRANCE HOUSE BASED IN GRASSE. AFTER RETURNING TO ITALY, HE SIGNED HIS FIRST CREATIONS AND IN 2011 HE FOUNDED ATELIER FRAGRANZE MILANO SRL WITH HIS FATHER.

HE IS NOW PERFUMER AND CEO.

Top three
Raw
Materials?

The Iris for his elegance. The Sandal because it is extremely ductile: it can give intensity and character to a masculine note - perhaps linked to a spice - and at the same time give softness and sensuality to a feminine - for example. with a white flower. Cashmere because it is surprising: you don't expect a molecule to be so extraordinary and addictive!
