Manufacturing secrets

To achieve this mission, Maison d’Hauteville has chosen the perfumer Vanina Muracciole. She worked closely with each sibling to transpose their olfactory memories into rare fragrances.

Vanina Muracciole, The Composer

Originally from Italy and Corsica, Vanina Muracciole was born in Paris. A childhood spent between the Corsican maquis and the artistic Parisian Left bank, influences her creativity.

Vanina has always been fascinated by the endless power of scents. She graduated from the prestigious perfumery school ISIPCA de Versailles. She started her career in Milan, then Grasse, the world’s capital of perfume. Back in Paris, she worked for the master Jean Patou before going solo.
For innovative houses or more institutional ones, Vanina, who’s also a talented pianist, always excels in composing the perfect chord. The musicality of fragrances is her signature and she has become a reference in the niche perfumery.

Nicolas Chabot, The Expert

Since day one, Nicolas Chabot has contributed to writing the Maison d’Hauteville’s story.

An advisor for major luxury brands and perfumer since four generations, Chabot took over Le Galion, a perfume house founded in 1930 in Paris. His ambition: to revisit the fragrances that made the house iconic in the 20th century. For Le Galion, he develops new fragrances in parallel, competing with each other for the title of most elegant one.

Passionate about art, design and marketing, Chabot has also launched his own company, Aeryum, that develops olfactory signatures for various brands.

The art of the packaging

Maison d’Hauteville has designed the perfect packaging, a sumptuous box that conceals the bottle of perfume.

But the bottle itself, pure and transparent, has nothing to hide.

Each bottle is topped with a heavy round stopper, in zamac, engraved with a reinterpretation of the family crest, using a technique similar to traditional silversmithing.

A gold-plated serigraphy

The subtlety of the gold-plated serigraphy enhances the purity of the design.

The black candle’s glass, hand blown, is imposing at first. And only once the flame is burning does the subtlety of the gold-plated serigraphy fully reveals itself in transparency.

The base of the candle, serving as well as a stopper, draws its inspiration from bottles of perfume.

Bottles and candles, reminiscent of cartridges for hunting, keep the smells of leather, hearth and undergrowth alive.

An atypical case protects, like a jewellery box, the fragrances and candles of Maison d’Hauteville.
