Boutique Parfums & Bijoux Pierres Poèmes Photo Olivier Durbano
Jeweler, Designer and Perfumer Olivier Durbano will soon open the doors to his first boutique, located in Grasse (the pre-opening is Tuesday 8/22). Olivier’s great grandparents cultivated rose de mai and Jasmine for perfumeries three generations ago and from his first perfume Rock Cyrstal in 2005, he has always created his beautiful Pierres Poèmes in Grasse.

Although most perfumistas know Olivier for his 11 fragrances, Chrysolithe was launched in 2015 (soon to number 12) his jewelry, each as unique as a snowflake and rare shawls, such as Black Tourmaline Cotton (you must look at his shawl New York 2016 ) are works of art, many inspired by the gemstones of his perfumes.

Grasse is the perfume capital of the world, located in the French Riviera and includes Cabris, where the The Roudnistka Estate is located. Famous for its flower fields of jasmine, rose, violets, and lavender, the region is home to MOLINARD (1849), FRAGONARD (1926), The Grasse Institute of Perfumery and The Musées de Grasse, this area in Provence is well known for its tours and simply stated without Grasse there is no perfume. I have often referred to Brooklyn and Soho here in NYC as the fragrance district. The real fragrance district was established in the mid-18th century and is the leading source of perfume materials in the world.
