A tireless storyteller, Jean-Max Estéban loved to tell the tale of how the company named after him began with love at first sight: that of an aviation enthusiast and explorer at heart with a young, perfume-loving artist.
To win her over, he designed delicately decorated totems that he perfumed to the core with precious notes. His desire: share his emotions with her and show her the infinite poetry of the world when seen from above.
After a trip to Africa, they created Teck & Tonka: a woody-spicy collection imbued with African art, which conjured up memories of red dirt tracks and wooden houses permeated with spices.
The rest of their story is marked by a series of encounters and friendships. Friend and stylist Primrose Bordier, the queen of colour, quickly embellished the initial collections and convinced them to expand on their creations.
Collection after collection, accessory after accessory, the company reinvented the art of perfumery and continued to spread its wings. Its poetry-permeated perfumesaccessories continued to captivate the eyes just as much as the senses.
For more than 35 years, they have been given and received with emotion, telling a story and creating connections.
Estéban continually creates irresistible perfumes that are friends, accomplices and to which we become attached because they make our lives and homes more beautiful.
French craftsmanship combined with mastery of the industrial tool. More than 90% of products are made in France with a selection of noble materials (wood, glass, ceramic) for more authenticity.
Aware that they live in a world where everything is linked, the environment has always been an important part of their creative process.
