Maison d’Hauteville

Manufacturing secrets

The Composer

Vanina Muracciole

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.

To lead this adventure, Maison d’Hauteville has surrounded itself with the nose of Vanina Muracciole. Stéphanie had a very precise idea for the Beau Revoir fragrance, which Vanina Muracciole’s nose was able to perfectly put into notes.

She then transposed the memories and desires of Arthur, Stéphanie and Thomas for Figure Libre and Obéréna.

Maison d’Hauteville was created thanks to a close collaboration with Nicolas Chabot.

With his expertise in perfume, he accompanies and guides Arthur, Stéphanie and Thomas in this great adventure, from the start.

The Expert

Nicolas Chabot

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.
