To develop her India-inspired fragrances, Neela was delighted to work with the famous French perfumer and admirer of India, Bertrand Duchaufour.


Bertrand is a true artist who seamlessly blends natural raw materials and synthetics of the highest quality to create a sublime sensory experience.  He is considered by many one of the greatest contemporary noses. Bertrand began his perfumer career in 1985, working for Florasynth Group in Grasse.


A master perfumer, his creative process follows

two fundamental principals: firstly, he believes that balance is achieved when opposites attract, like yin and yang.  Secondly, he asserts that nothing is lost nor is created; everything is transformed.


He distorts and deconstructs nature, playing with contrasts such as vegetal and animal notes. Over the course of his career, he has collaborated with L’Artisan Parfumeur with brilliant results.
