Marie is a natural perfumer from Johannesburg and the owner of Saint d’Ici Perfumes.

marie-aoun

Marie’s approach to perfumes is not far removed from winemaking: she works directly with small-scale farmers and artisan distillers to obtain only the best natural ingredients, which are then crafted into limited edition scents by various Noses. Marie is a strong believer in respecting the seasonality and variances of natural ingredients, which makes Saint d’Ici somewhat of an anomaly in the world of perfumery where replicability is instead sought. She looks forward to sharing her world of scents with you.
