Although each bottle is made to order, these aren't custom blends.
"We don't believe in custom making in front of people," Penot explained. "We take more than three years to make one of our creations, so it doesn't make sense to mix in front of you . . . The craftsmanship and the fresh hand-making of the perfume, the reason [that it's done] is the fragility. Like every beautiful thing in our lives, it's fragile and we need to take care of it."
