Olivier Cresp was literally born into perfume. His family, whose origin traces back to the 12th century, hails from Grass. Both his father and grandfather worked all their lives in the raw materials trade. Olivier was therefore bathed in “pure colors” from his early childhood: jasmine, rose, violet, as well as essences of lemon, mandarin, orange, and bergamot, samples of which his father used to bring home. That is when he developed a unique olfactory memory and a genuine passion for the profession of perfumer. He likes to describe his style as figurative. The idea is what counts above all. It can spring from a childhood memory, a feeling, a conversation, or a stroll in nature. Then style follows, which he defines as simple, minimalist, and authentic.
