Matiere Premiere Perfumes

Matiere Premiere, which in French means "raw material", is a perfume brand that revolves around a central natural ingredient, used in its highest dosage. Founder and perfumer Aurélien Guichard, between Paris and Grasse, creates contemporary, direct and understandable fragrances that reveal the unique texture and the most beautiful facets of each central ingredient. The brand's approach is focused on excellence and quality, favouring ethical and organic production methods.


The Matiere Premiere Fragrance Formula: Natural Ingredients and Unparalleled Quality

The fragrances of Matiere Premiere are composed to offer an unrivalled emotional impression, a sillage that will never fade. The brand pays particular attention to each stage of the ageing process, from maturation to maceration, to guarantee unique quality. The fragrances contain between 85% and 92% natural ingredients and are veganphthalate-free and dye-free.


The Matiere Premiere Philosophy: Beginning from the Origins

In 2016, Aurélien Guichard founded an organic farm in Grasse, where he grows thousands of Centifolia Roses and Tuberoses in an exceptional terroir recognised as an Immaterial Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2018. The flowers are used to produce the Tuberose Absolute and Enfleurage, the heart of their French Flower fragrance. Each year, harvesting takes place for 30 days in May, and the flowers are picked every morning and taken immediately to a nearby factory to produce the Absolute of Rose Centifolia, the main ingredient in Radical Rose. "Growing our flowers is a way to reconnect with the essence of a perfumer's work: creating the fragrance itself, but also supervising the quality and production methods of the raw material," says Aurélien Guichard. 


The Unique Quality of Matiere Premiere

The fragrances of Matiere Premiere offer a unique approach to perfumery, with a particular focus on natural ingredients, unparalleled quality and ethical production methods. From the central natural ingredient used in each fragrance to the careful ageing process, every step is taken to ensure a unique and exceptional fragrance experience.

Premiere Matiere Perfumes Reviews: Discover Our Customers' Opinions!

  • Matiere Premiere Bois d'Ebene Eau de Parfum: “Very high quality; immediately perceptible, durability on skin excellent. Linear, rounded, and well-developed. The apotheosis of sensuality: is a very sexy fragrance, both on men and women. I think there is a slight animalic note inside. The aroma of juniper makes the warmth of the wood intriguing. Patchouli rounds it all off. Gives shivers of pleasure.” Marinella
  • Matiere Premiere Cologne Cedrat Eau de Parfum: “Very fresh opening with a citrusy scent that lasts remarkably long, then sliding towards mate and musky notes that make Cologne Cedrat a well-balanced fragrance. A robust cologne” Luca
  • Matiere Premiere Custom Set: “I took two matiere premiere discovery kits/custom sets, one of 3 and one of 6, so I could get almost all the fragrances. I must say that they are very, very pretty! The size is perfect to keep in your handbag or suitcase, but in my opinion, a kit of these is also a beautiful gift idea! ”Anne

The incense note mixes with vanilla benzoin, turning into a sensual incense that has nothing to do with that of our churches. The other notes are more of a background chorus to this fantastic centre. A rounded, well-balanced and sensual fragrance.”Ayla

I usually hate perfumes with lots of tuberoses, but I really like this one! is an unabashedly sensual scent, even a bit aggressive. A light note of thé refreshes and counterbalances the ambroxan. is a complex fragrance, to be tried on the skin and left to develop, but once tried in all its splendour, it is never forgotten."
