Maïa belongs to a lineage of artistic, freethinking women. Her great-grandmother raised eyebrows for studying at L’École des Beaux-Arts during the 19th Century. As a child, she spent evenings in her mother’s painting studio; the balmy breeze from eucalyptus trees blending with the woody notes of charcoal sketches. As she fondly announces, her mother gave her the “education of the eye”.
Maïa is drawn to perfume’s collision between art and science. Her love of ballet, opera and haute couture convey a mind avid for creativity balanced with discipline – “I’m always fighting for the beautiful”.
Flora Luminare Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum narrate a utopian tale; of an inflorescent paradise bathed by a luminous, languid morning.
