“Perfume is a fluid emotion, our lives vibrate throughout his waves. The perfume exalts the imagination, so I make my fragrances with bits of dreams.” – Jean-Michel Duriez.



Jean-Michel Duriez, former perfumer for Rochas and Jean Patou celebrated his 30 years’ career anniversary by releasing his first perfume “L’étoile et le papillon” (The star and the butterfly) under his own brand Jean-Michel Duriez Paris. This unisex fragrance was created by Jean-Michel Duriez 10 years ago for a couple of friends who were getting married. This scent is the embodiment of their union. An exquisite blend of Turkish rose, ylang, Caledonian sandalwood, Texan cedar, patchouli and lichen accords. An alchemy with an elegant and luxurious sillage.


For his first collection, Jean-Michel Duriez collaborated with street artist Noé Two. Each perfume will be sold in a unique and limited edition box designed by Noé Two. The bottle was designed by Pierre Dinan. The perfume is available in a popup store within Galerie Viviene in Paris and should be available in Printemps, Nose and Sens Unique soon enough. In February 2017 will be released his second collection of 7 fragrances.
