Philippe Franc defines himself as a "carrier of scents". He imagines and creates lavender bouquets mixing lavender flowers and quality ribbons.
The house Franc proposes, on its site and in its store of Lourmarin (84), several hearts of lavender putting forward the best scents, with forms, techniques of weaving, and different colors and several meters of the most beautiful ribbons.
"A perfume is opening doors"
A former sailor, Philippe Franc is passionate about natural perfumes and has discovered the importance of scents and their universal language. He travels to discover new perfumes. Passionate about his art, he does not count his hours, invents, develops, creates. And always learns from his work.
The new smells or those memorized for a long time trigger emotions. Lavender, particularly dear to Philippe's heart, breathes the beautiful, healthy and natural scent of Provence. Exceptional, it was already venerated in ancient Egypt 4000 years ago and used at the court of Versailles, among others.
Sharing the "hearts of lavender" is sharing pleasure
Philippe Franc grows and produces his own lavender in the south of France, up to 1000 meters of altitude, in the Luberon and Vaucluse. Because altitude is more conducive to quality than quantity.
The ribbons come mainly from Saint-Etienne, the world capital of ribbons since the 17th century.
His creations take the form of spindles, balls, bottles, eggs, shuttles...
It is not about perfume for oneself but about gifts to offer...even if we cannot resist the desire to keep one for ourselves! The creations are gifts of welcome, of decoration to be used in everyday life, to be offered for the holidays, to be shared with families and friends.
You can put them on a beautiful Christmas table, as decoration, or use them as a proximity scent, under the pillows, in the luggage or in the drawers... Without moderation!
2022 promises new surprising realizations, by their quality, their history and their design.
