Quetzaly is Daniel Josier‘s latest perfume inspired by the ancient culture of the Aztecs and the smells of Mexico. Quetzaly, in the Nahualt language, language of the ancient Aztecs means “precious” (also derives the name quetzal, which is a multicolored and precious bird typical of Mexico and Central America).
The perfume is basically an incense, but with Mexican character. The intro of the perfume is made up with lime, avocado and chili. The heart and protagonist of the perfume is made up of incense, copal and the dahlia (Mexico’s national flower). Finally, the base and depth of the perfume is achieved with cedar, sandalwood and musk.
Daniel Josier is one of the best exponents of a new generation of perfumers who follow in the footsteps of the great Spanish noses. Trained at ISIPCA in Versailles and after having worked hand in hand with Jean Claude Ellena, he began in 1987 in the world of perfumery being responsible for major accounts for the creation of essences such as Haaman & Reimer (now Symrise), a German multinational for the creation of perfumes, contacting companies such as Sara Lee, UniLever, L’Oreal. Puig, and LVMH.
In 2004 she started working for Iberchem, a company responsible for the creation of perfumes for the Spanish market. Since 2008, she was responsible for the French company Expressions Parfumees for Iberia (Spain and Portugal), with clients such as Puig, CH, Rabanne, Ricci, Prada, Valentino, Yves Rocher, L’Occitane, among others.
Finally in 2014, Daniel Josier decided to take the big leap and create his own signature signature perfumes that transport the consumer to a true olfactory experience. The names of their creations can make us think of classic fragrances, nothing could be further from the truth, behind each scent hides a real surprise and nothing is what it seems, they are creative, modern but without stridencies and adapt to our skin in a perfect symbiosis.
Daniel Josier has his own brand Daniel Josier, but he has also been the creator of other perfumes in Renier Perfumes, Comporta and Creations Aromatiques. All available in our shop The Perfumery.
