Amelie & Pierre Montale
Pierre MONTALE launched his brand in Paris in 2003. After many years as a perfumer in Saudi Arabia, during which he also created for the royal family, he returned to Paris to present his own wonderful creations to the Western world. He and his daughter Amelie run this exquisite perfume brand.
In 2002, at the age of only 25, Pierre launched his first compositions which the American perfume critic Chandler Burr (New York Times & GQ) described as "the coolest new European fragrances from a young French chemist". He also founded his own free, independent perfume house: Pierre Guillaume Paris.

Friendly Fur Berlin is the world's first and only brand and certificate for collecting and recycling fur from nature conservation as the opposite and alternative to breeding and suffering.
Maison J.U.S was launched in France at the beginning of 2019 by three friends who dreamed of a new and exceptional perfumery. The founders Thierry de Baschmackoff, Brigitte Werner, and Jean Baptiste want to reinvent luxury to make it more sustainable, more responsible and always more desirable.
Five French master perfumers are part of the J.U.S. creative team: Alexandra Carlin, Fabrice Pellegrin, Alienor Massenet, Aurelien Guichard, Celine Ellena. All of them have worked with the founders for other brands in the past. Totally in line with the “La Nouvelle Parfumerie Française” concept, they love working for J.U.S. as it is a "recreation" for them in between working for the other big players in the industry...
