LA BAGATELLE’S OWN PARFUMER:
A friend of the house and the nose behind La Bagatelle’s scents is Emmanuel Martini. He is a French independent parfumer who trained in French perfume composition houses in the South of France, more specifically in Grasse and in Manosque. Mr Martini became a parfumer because of the beauty of the craft:
“It is a very uncommon language that provides beauty, emotions and feelings about aesthetics. It is not material but very abstract and it requires true sensibility.”
When doing the scents for La Bagatelle his thoughts behind them were to do “something that like everything else at La Bagatelle is about a lot of beauty and creativity”.
The Library, a scent in the shape of a candle
The latest scented candle by Emmanuel Martini is called “The library”. It is inspired by the memories of a journey to the Caribbean with cigar smoke, drinks of rum and citrus fruits being mixed. It takes your mind on a journey far away with the strike of a match.
