With a great-grandfather who was a lavender producer and an expert distiller, a gardener grandfather who specialized in raw materials in Grasse, and a perfumer father, Clément Gavarry possesses an incredibly rich olfactory heritage. The son of famous perfumer Max Gavarry, Clément was introduced to the art of essential oils at a very early age.

A graduate of the ISIPCA, the prestigious school of perfumery in Versailles, he was first involved in chromatography and analysis of raw materials before the idea of becoming a perfumer suddenly materialized when he was on a business trip in 1998 in New York, where he still works these days.
