conceived in Provence • created in Singapore • crafted in New Zealand
Hello, I'm Katherine - founder, product developer and the nose behind En.Vie Aromatique. My journey started at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery in France, where I followed my nose and trained in perfumery and cosmetic formulation.
I enjoy exploring new accords and researching raw ingredients. But it wasn’t perfume per se that interested me but traditional natural ingredients that were made into products that we use everyday. Unknown to many, this is an industry steeped in centuries of traditions from our great grandparents times.
My French teachers have spent their lives in the perfume and cosmetic industry. The details of knowledge they were able to impart was nothing short of mind blowing. Techniques in oil blending, holistic medicine and traditional soap-making are all derived from decades of experience and production, and in some cases dated back to the 19th century.
Less is more. We care about traditions, the environment and the sources that go into what we consume. We make products that genuinely work - not selling you beauty, miracles or even hope in a jar.
Ingredients are personally sourced from Europe, Australia and New Zealand, where the highest ecological and organic certifications are maintained. Sources have to be pure and genuinely sustainable so there is longevity in supply, production and product quality.
If you would like us to personalise a fragrance or scented gifts for a special occasion (wedding and events), please feel free to ask.
If you are a salon or ODM business looking for a small line of customised products, we are happy to help. We have produced a range of home fragrance, aromatherapy skincare and TCM guasha cream for corporate customers in Singapore.
There may be plenty of choices in the marketplace today. But by far, there are few products as natural and authentic as En.Vie.
