At Binet-papillon, we believe that using the highest quality raw materials is the foundation of creating extraordinary fragrances. We work closely with renowned perfumeries and growers in France, who have honed their expertise over generations, to procure the finest essences. Whether it's the delicate scent of Provencal lavender, the rich and earthy notes of Grasse jasmine, or the exotic allure of Tahitian vanilla, each ingredient is carefully selected to ensure the utmost quality and authenticity.


The Distinctive Craft of Perfume Composition

Creating a masterpiece fragrance requires an intricate understanding of scent composition. At Binet-papillon, our perfumer is an artist who masterfully blend top, heart, and base notes to craft scents that are layered, harmonious, and utterly enchanting. Top notes are the initial impression of a perfume, fleeting and fresh, while heart notes are the heart and soul of the fragrance, revealing its true character. Finally, base notes anchor the scent, leaving a lingering, sensual trail.

Our perfumer takes inspiration from nature, art, emotions, and personal experiences, translating these influences into unique olfactory compositions. They are guided by intuition, experience, and an exceptional sense of smell. Each creation is a testament to the perfumer's creativity and dedication to the craft, resulting in fragrances that resonate deeply with the wearer and those around them.
