We could argue that the scents are what first caught our attention to this brand, but it was not so. It was the design put into these bottles containing those scents. Truth shall prevail.
Like all good designs, this has a lot to do with the liquid it contains. Introducing a ground-breaking French perfume maker in a field of tradition. And read the subtitle for clues: Maison Matine speaks of a willingness to transcend traditional Paris style.
Founders Arthur and Marie are facing quite a challenge, indeed. They launched this project back in 2019 aiming at portraying the present times, with each and every contradiction, theme, and grandeur.
Maison Matine is taking a different path from that opulent, gender-distinctive trajectory of traditional perfume houses. Their fragrances are not quite tense, nor pompous. But you can actually tell these things by their packaging, unmistakable like the names of these perfumes. Wouldn’t you fall for one named Lost in Translation?
This house defines itself with these three adjectives:
Graphic: Not only we can smell the character, but it’s also in the packaging and the images around it.
Responsible: They take responsibility for every action they make, from collaborative work with perfumers and designers to ingredients selection for fragrances. These are harvested and collected following respectful procedures and practices for nature and producers. All fragrances are produced in Paris and Chartres. Cardboard is recycled and recyclable, and no adhesive tape is used.
Generous: This is a generous brand. They offer quality fragrances at more affordable prices than the average. Perfumes working for this firm include Adlison Rato, Elise Benat, Ane Ayo, Philippine Courtiere, Fabrice Pellegrin.
Maison Matine is for those tired of already smelled fragrances in already seen packagings. It’s like nothing else.
