Sacred wood from Amazonia, the Palo Santo is used in numerous healing and afterlife communication rituals. It is during a trip to South America that the perfumer, Alexandra Monet, fell in love at first sight with this wood. Unsatisfied by the perfumery ingredient that was extracted from it, she re-created it thanks to a specific combination, out of respect for the plant and for its fragrance.
Without a doubt among the most ancestral raw material of perfumery, Incense and Myrrh fit perfectly. The Frankincense—real incense—releases spicy and mineral notes, while Myrrh delivers suave and warm notes, almost liquorish, which brings an Oriental touch to perfumes. Wood, for sure, but a creamy and sensual one. The Cedar wood can also recall a pencil lead, fresh and slightly regressive. A blond and resinous wood, with a strong personality.

Enthusiastic and spontaneous, Alexandra has a sensitivity that allows her to put in perfume her emotions. After being a student from the perfumery school l’ISIPCA, she has continued her career at DROM up until 2018. She enjoys the gourmet styles and the vibrant notes. Her favorite material is definitively Patchouli that she considers as a vibrant and magical essence. Beside all of this, she has also created scented candles for the Plaza Athénée hotel in Paris and for Arty Fragrances…
Her collaboration with The Different Company has begun in 2013 with the creation of 4 candles: Songe, Apesanteur, Nuit Blanche (Collection des Rêves) and Wood (The Modern House). She continued with our anniversary perfume and d’Adjatay, cuir Narcotique from the collection Juste Chic in 2016.
For centuries, luxury has been synonymous with scarcity, quality, precision and inaccessibility. But little by little, it became popular, becoming more and more accessible and standardising the offer. The Different Company was born within this century, in a context where perfume lovers are turning away from the novelties of the big brands, which tend today to create juices intended to please the greatest number.
Based on this observation, The Different Company’s first creations appeared, developed by Jean Claude Ellena and Thierry de Baschmakoff. Not imposing costs or codes limits, exploring new territories, demanding excellence in raw materials and sillages, working with talented perfumers of international renown, expressing a signature luxury design: this is the vision of The Luxury Perfumery of The Different Company.
