Gérald Ghislain, the founder and Creative Director of Histoires de Parfums announces the En Aparté collection, a trilogy of fragrances meant to evoke stories in scent the way books evoke emotions. With this collection, his intent is to reinvent ‘classic’ olfactive categories in unconventional ways.
“Like a conversation, perfume is an expression, conveyed at times in the form of a declaration and at other times a secret. There is that which can be said aloud and clearly, and that which can only be expressed in private, with the utmost discretion. Such an intention is featured in the En Aparté collection. A space offering complete freedom to elicit without compromise while coveting secrets and privacy as well.– Gérald Ghislain
