was born in Marseille to a half French, half Vietnamese family, celebrating a mix of culture and talent: her father a musician, her mother a sculptress, her uncle a photographer, one sister a soprano and another make up artist. Her environment gave Cécile, at age 7, the inspiration to express her creativity through her own talent: concocting scents.
Her passion for the art of Perfumery lies in its craft. Cécile is fascinated by composing something herself with raw materials, infusing it with personality, and sometimes a very personal message. Cecile was the first recipient of the Fashion Group International Rising Star Award for the Fragrance Design category in 2003.
