Louison is a classically-trained perfumer creating original fragrances in his independent laboratory in Paris.
Louison was born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium.
He was a quiet child who favored his stamp collection and herbarium to board games.
Upon finishing the Beaux-Arts with a concentration in couture, Louison left Belgium to settle in Paris in 1994 where he introduced his collection and quickly gained popularity attracting celebrity clientele with his clothing collection that interplays elegance with stirring romanticism.
Before long, he was invited to join the prestigious Haute Couture federation in 2003, due to his innate capability to craft garments with dramatic silhouettes in sumptuous use of fabrics, from silk to leather, from cashmere to linen. Creating sombre yet dramatic pieces, his avant-garde sensibility garnered favourable reviews and would draw celebrity clients to his fold.
Taking a hiatus from the rigueur of fashion, Louison had time to contemplate on his philosophy, his perspective, and his passions. In this moment of reflection he came to see the profound value of each day, the grandeur of time, and to mark the passing of time. In this reverie, he studied simultaneously a perfume school in Paris and the European School of Herbalists in Brussels.
Upon graduating he went to work at Charabot where he learned to master perfume composition and he developed a range of Perfume, Scented candles, soap, infusion line under the title « Technique Indiscrete »
Influenced by his travels, the places he used to live and where he currently resides his perfumes are the embodiement of his emotions, art poetry, philosophy, has attracted celebrity clients such a Brigitte Fontaine, Tilda Swinton, Jodie Foster, John Galliano, Florence Welsh of Florence+the Machines and Mika.
Notably, Louison distinguishes himself as the only Belgian who is both a certified ‘nose’ and a designer who produces his own perfumes in his laboratory and makes his own clothes in his atelier by his own atelier.
In 2016, with an established perfume company under his belt, Louison will branch back into fashion-lifestyle-housewear in his individual way. Integrating his values as a vegan and a naturalist into his work, Louison believes that we are to be the guardians of the earth with the responsibility to reduce the suffering to animals, insects, trees, and plants. Man will evolve and transcend to another level of consciousness living in balance with the elements of earth.
In reverence to nature and life, his new fashion-lifestyle-housewear collection is inspired by the beauty of floral shapes, reinterpreting elegance, brushed with idealism. Fabrics are draped, worn loose, or layered to create lightness and lithe fluidity of femininity.
