Olivier Durbano

In 2005 Olivier opened his universe to the world of exclusive fragrances, those of "niche perfumery". The "Parfums de Pierres Poèmes" collection inspired by legend and the symbolism of stones was built, stone by stone, following the rhythm of the artist's life.The enigmatic creations draw their inspiration from the myths of stones and the magic of incense; precious essences, highly praised elixirs...

A nomad from the Mediterranean, Olivier Durbano was born on the Côte d'Azur in Cannes. Stones entered his life when he was five and have fascinated him ever since. Stones, the power of stones, that of "Elsewhere" and our own power... After studying at the School of Architecture in Lyon, providing tone and sense, time was spent as a freelance decorator and designer.

Stones were always his passion and the first pieces of jewellery took on form and spirit. The stone became a stone of patience, gratitude, love and healing... On a background of black and white, between the yin and the yang, the image of an Oriental philosophy... A footprint, a signature, the seal of a designer spirit and a deep desire to create in complete freedom following in the footsteps of truth... Then calligraphy with two transformed symbols, one enlarged and the other reduced, today and tomorrow; "at the beginning" is the meaning, a starting point and a direction... "Pierres Poèmes", "Poem Stones", the soul of things, pebbles and beings, energies and actions...

A symbolic act as close as possible to the soul of the designer, real balls of stone in the heart of the bottle, transcending these fragrances floating between power and poetry.
