All our fragrance creations in the BODYGUARD® collection are original perfumes developed by our master perfumer and made in our very own laboratory located in the heart of Haute Provence, in Manosque. It is from here that we make every single bottle of BODYGUARD® and ship out around the world. By controlling the entire production process we can guarantee the exceptional quality of our fragrances.
About an olfactory pyramid
For each fragrance we have an olfactory pyramid which allows us during the creation process of the fragrance to balance the different components and to have a harmonised final result.
The three different notes represent three different stages in the evolution of a fragrance. The evaporation of the different aromas is gradual, some longer than others, depending on the note, the final olfactory result develops over time.
The top note is the first note that you will smell after spraying. It is volatile and ephemeral, it gives the first impression on the perfume.
The heart note is the characteristic note of the perfume, it is voluptuous, and constitutes the olfactory signature of the perfume.
The base note is the one that will fix the perfume and make it last over time.
The creation process
A quality fragrance requires time and patience.
For all of our productions, we use a superfine beet alcohol purified of all impurities. The quality of raw materials is paramount.
Once all the components have been mixed, the most important step is maceration, during which a real marriage takes place between the aromatic compounds and the alcohol.
During the maceration, the perfume is regularly mixed, which increases the contact between the different ingredients.
After a minimum of 3 weeks of maceration, the perfume matures. It is then filtered. All the impurities resulting from the maceration are then removed.
Free from Endocrine Disruptors
The fragrance used in our BODYGUARD ® range are free from endocrine disruptors and are formulated without butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT, an allergenic and carcinogenic oxidising agent) .
