Spotlight on Perfumer Philippine Courtière

Passion, patience, curiosity and instinct

Described by many as having a certain je ne sais quoi, Perfumer Philippine Courtière is a daring and impeccable tastemaker whose wit and unmatched instinct for what works in the world of perfumery has given rise to her shining star within the renowned Firmenich Fragrance House. As the noted olfactory artist behind JAFRA’s new and exclusive fine fragrance Paris et Moi, Philippine is the embodiment of strong, sexy, sophistication - words that incidentally describe one of her greatest loves – Paris, the City of Lights.
Philippine says that “The power of the sense of smell is so strong it can trigger any emotions,” a belief that inspires her to create one-of-a-kind fragrance masterpieces. Philippine also believes that “Perfumes are like non-verbal stories or messages [that communicate] between the creator and the consumer,” yet another reason why Philippine loves to dive head first into a new fragrance project. It is also this relationship between creator and consumer that inspired Philippine to create Paris et Moi – a fragrance that bridges the gap “…between the glamour, the elegance and the youthful energy of trendy Parisian girls,” and the notion of “Fall[ing] in love.”
Why Philippine?
Born and raised in Paris to parents who worked in perfumery, Philippine first attended school to become a legal adviser – a plan that was quickly dashed after she accepted an internship in the very career her parents worked. Once bitten by the fragrance bug, there was no turning back. The status quo had shifted permanently and a new career was born.
Philippine remembers spending time as a young girl with her grandfather, Jaques Rouet, a man who played an instrumental role in the fashion House of Dior. It was he that taught her the value of purpose and commitment, and instilled in her the belief that willpower and hard work are the keys to making your dreams come true. She proudly credits this mentality for why she is so accomplished.  
Joie de vivre
A former ballet dancer, Philippine has other interests away from the career she loves, ranging from riding horses to collecting art. Like herself, Philippine encourages others to be passionate, patient and curious about the world – while also helping those around them. All of these are ways to feed the creative spirit she needs in work…and in life, which she approaches with equal enthusiasm. No doubt, another key component of her continued and increasing success.

3 More Reasons To Be Obsessed With The Royal Jelly Ritual

Users tell all…

Just when you thought the Royal Jelly Ritual couldn’t get any better…it did. Always on a mission to deliver the best in anything JAFRA, our research and development experts worked tirelessly to expand our skin care presence with three much-awaited launches: Global Longevity Crème with RoyalActive Peptide, Vitamin Infusions Spot Serum with Vitamin C, and Global Longevity Eye Crème with RoyalActive Peptide. These new additions are designed to work individually or with the current Royal Jelly Ritual.
Developed to meet the overwhelming need of women (20+ years old) with extremely dry skin, Global Longevity Crème with RoyalActive Peptide was introduced and the reviews are in! In clinical trials, a whopping 96% of women saw their skin dreams come true within minutes of using this ultra-hydrating, lightweight age-fighting balm. It left their severely dry complexions feeling supple, luminous, younger, smoother, and their fine lines were less apparent. Powered by key ingredients, this balm contains RoyalActive Peptide - a sized-down protein in natural royal jelly that penetrates the skin better to slow down aging, and New Zealand-grown natural moisturizer Mānuka Honey, which delivers intense hydration.
The key to having a more evened skin tone is to use our most targeted solution to date - Vitamin Infusions Spot Serum with Vitamin C. Poised to minimize the appearance of dark spots and skin imperfections as a result of sun exposure and acne, this miracle serum, which is infused with Vitamin C works on existing spots and on those spots that have yet to surface. No wonder 96% of women who used this serum noticed dramatic improvements on even their darkest problem area, while 93% of women saw impressive results after their first use! In addition to lightening darkened skin pigmentation, this serum makes your skin appear radiant and youthful.  
Finally win the battle against dark circles and other signs of aging with Global Longevity Eye Crème with RoyalActive Peptide - a multi-action age—defying eye crème that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and puffiness so you look bright-eyed and refreshed. Along with RoyalActive Peptide, which helps to maintain your skin’s vitality, this eye crème, of course, contains our signature royal jelly, as well as Wild Aga to calm swollen, puffy eyes caused by allergens and Cassava, a skin-firming extract that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. And we’re thrilled to report that an independent test returned more than favorable results after a small sample of women tried this eye crème for two weeks. 100% of them said that their eye area showed much improvement – was brighter, looked less puffy and was much smoother.
