Jessica September Buchanan grew up on seashores and in the countryside of western Canada. She began studying essential oils at a young age, and after working with natural cosmetics for many years, she focused on perfumery using only botanical essences. Following 4 years of work in her own lab, she also achieved accredited certification in clinical aromatherapy in 2006, followed by a move to France to study at the Grasse Institute of Perfumery for the full year training (2007). Here she refined her understanding of technical fragrance creation. Following the intensive training, she interned in two of the traditional perfume houses of the region, (Robertet and Mane), which facilitated an enlightening inside view of the perfume industry. Since then, her lab has been officially based in the centre of the old city of Grasse since 2014.
In 2017, she opened the first bricks and mortar boutique/atelier on the main square of the old city, and conitnues as the sole perfumer and artisitc director of the house.
