A venerable Roman chapel in the south of Italy or a monastery lost in the perfumed hills of Greece… Here, time is of no importance. There is only eternity. On the cool flagstones, worn to a satiny polish over the centuries, the Mediterranean summer’s burning caress exalts an infinite love, almost holy. Suspended in the air is a perfume of mysticism and mystery, hinting at a torrid, almost violent fever. Incense, olibanum and myrrh, immemorial aromas for entire, impetuous passion, ready for communion.

JOVOY is the story of an enchanting renaissance, that of a Parisian perfume house born in 1923 and then forgotten for over 80 years. In 2010, François Hénin, a globetrotter captivated by alluring raw materials, decided to give it new life. After years of picaresque adventures pursuing scents deep into Vietnamese forests, followed by a detour through Grasse, the entrepreneurial adventurer had acquired unique expertise. Now the house's creator and Artistic Director, he is making JOVOY Parfumeur Parisien an emblematic hallmark of niche contemporary perfumery. Whether they are eaux de parfum, extracts or interior scents, all JOVOY creations have a beguiling story to tell, originating from a personal meeting or experience. Each one is artfully prepared by independent noses engaged in creative fusion with the publishing house, and their interpretation must convey the initial promise and vision. As a result of this resolutely modern approach, JOVOY signs its name to a collection of multiple inspirations, perfectly in tune with amateurs of rare fragrances from around the world. The complete opposite of standardised global creations, JOVOY therefore stands for the dream of exceptional perfumery, part of a notable French tradition and far from ostentation and elitism. An accessible dream, too, that the house wishes to share with all those who want pure fragrances arising out of emotion to carry them away on a journey.
