Etienne's Holiday Gift Guide

We asked our brilliant Founder and Creative Director, Etienne de Swardt, for his holiday gift guide suggestions and – of course – his recommendations were as thoughtful and unique as those special someone’s we all want to treat this holiday season.



"Divin'Enfant shall be the chosen one for the holiday selection. A not so naive scent promising something wonderful way above your narrow dimensions of perception. It’s an immanent scent, a great spraying triumph over despair."


Remarkable People

"Then Remarkable People that blends panache, generosity and pink champagne celebration. This Christmas you shall be celebrated and praised because you are forged in bonté ( kindness in French)."


La Fin Du Monde

"Then La Fin du Monde cause the year-end means to go out with a bang and leave a wake of popcorn and Iris."


Fils de Dieu

"And Fils de Dieu to celebrate the ones silent but always careful and protector. For the elder brother or elder sister always there for you."


Hermann a Mes Cotes Me Paraissait Une Ombre

"Hermann, of course, because of the Walpurgis night long ago in a dark forest in a trembling dark 19th century. Beautiful and apocalyptic he was!"
