ABOUT THE ATELIER


In summer, the Mediterranean island of Corsica is covered by immortelle and exhales its enchanting scent. Experience this magical moment through the eyes of a passionate perfume designer! Learn about the immortelle flower, how and where it grows, and how climate, location and soil impact your perception of its scent. Discover the best treks in southern Corsica to find it; from the maquis above Porto Vecchio, to its the salt marsh at the mouth of river Fiume Stabiaccu, before heading to the shores of Bonifacio and across the magical Lavezzi Islands. Finally, learn how immortelle is processed to obtain a precious “absolute” for perfume creation.

Prior to the workshop, you will receive, by mail, an envelope containing:

  • One dried immortelle from Corsica
  • One paper-strip infused with immortelle “absolu”
  • One paper-strip infused with a Sulékó perfume composed with immortelle

This shall allow you to discover the facets of the flower at its various stages: when it is natural, when it is distilled and when it is composed by a perfume designer to narrate a story.
