Designers of furniture and white ceramics, Ivan Pericoli and Benoît Astier de Villatte founded their company in 1996. Successor to the Parisian manufacturers of the 18th century, Astier de Villatte is now the only major studio keeping the tradition of artisanal ceramic production in Paris alive. In 2000, they opened the boutique at 173 rue Saint Honoré, which also presented their other creations for the home: titanium cutlery, borosilicate glassware and above all the wonderful collection of traditionally printed notebooks.
In 2008 they decided to join forces with a big name from the perfume world and together begin creating luxury scented goods. Working with their associate, Emilie Mazeaud, and Françoise Caron, the star perfumer at Takasago, the Japanese fragrance company, Astier de Villate’s range of scented products was born. It includes Colognes, beauty products, incense, erasers and a large collection of scented candles on the enchanting theme of an olfactory world tour.
In 2016 the Astier de Villatte galaxy is expanding to include handmade ceramic objects, scented products and notebooks, with their random colours and tiled pattern, and are now being joined by a publishing house and its first publication: “Ma vie à Paris”.
