Les Nouveaux Comptoirs Olfactifs are the first in Europe to receive the “Natural Perfumery Retailer” certification awarded by the IPF (International Perfume Foundation).
The purpose of this certification program is to ensure that consumers can differentiate between synthetic perfumery and pure and natural perfumes.
The IPF’s mission is to “protect and revitalize the culture and heritage of perfume to reconnect human society with the beauty of natural fragrances and the healing power of nature”.
Like all natural perfumery retailers certified by the IPF, Les Nouveaux Comptoirs Olfactifs follow the ethics of the New Luxury Code.
Natural and traditional perfumery has existed for more than 5000 years, synthetic perfumery or “modern” perfumery: 150 years. A natural perfume is essentially composed of flowers and plants. It does not include any synthetic molecules. These plants and flowers are picked and processed by the perfumer or by a farmer, who also produces certified essential oils. A natural perfumer does not use any alcohol denatured by phthalates that are endocrine disruptors. They spend more time in nature than in their laboratories, know the properties of plants and respect the New Luxury Code (RTBF)
