Comptoir Sud Pacifique launches Voyages en Orient..all new collection inspired by the mystics of Middle East

Through their audacity and drawing on their travels, they made up collections of fragrances, inspired by the treasures of nature in distant lands. Comptoir Sud Pacifique lend their signature to fragrances just as figurative paintings will evoke memories of nature.
In 2010 Valérie Pianelli took over Comptoir Sud Pacifique and since then she has bn carrying this work based around the culture of travel forward with great passion. Since 1974 Comptoir Sud Pacifique has bn working with imagination, exceptional raw materials and visionary perfumers to forge a distinctive alchemical vision, creating some of the most intriguing, singular and dply personal scents.
