VANINA MURACCIOLE

A graduate of chemistry and ISIPCA in Versailles, Vanina Muracciole began working at MANE in Milan and Grasse, before joining the master perfumer at the fashion House Jean Patou. An independent perfumer since 2012, she has won over a hundred WINS and regularly collaborates with major institutional perfume houses as well as more exclusive brands. She draws her inspiration from the Corsican maquis, from fashion or music, and always seeks to translate into perfume the smallest details of her clients' stories.
