Manos Gerakinis’s vision of the fragrance brand is clear: he wants the wearer to become the pole of attraction for those around her/him and to create a lasting memory long after.

Manos, given name Emmanouil, a world class traveler specialized in fine luxury, was born in North Greece but lived abroad most of his life.

Coming from a ship owner family that originates in Istanbul meant that his grandparents would take him traveling around the world. He was charmed by different cultures while growing to love classical music and developing his natural talent for painting. His grandmother, a fine art lover, introduced him to the french 'Savoir Faire' and insisted on him taking painting classes for almost ten years.

 

“you know what charm is:
a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question”

Albert Camus

Since a young boy Manos started collecting scents and fragrances in order to captivate their memories. He knew since then that a fragrance is one's little treasure and as such it should be unique, mysterious and poetic. He is the editor of every single perfume to its last detail and each one narrates a story of their own. His scents can take you to various places, from walking down Champs Elysees to the Arab souk markets, from a summer night in Greece to a Japanese flower garden.
