MAD et LEN traps the scents of memories into beautifully handcrafted objects and experimental fragrances.
The nature that surrounds the brand’s atelier in the southern France Alps serves as the main source of inspiration for its perfume and candle lines as well as for the organic shapes of its furniture pieces, which always feature a certain sophisticated rawness. In the peaceful atmosphere of those rough and barely inhabited landscapes, the minds of Sandra and Alexandre, designers of MAD et LEN, are free to wander through their past experiences, recalling their trips all over the word, like the time they spent in Africa, New Caledonia, Fiji Islands and Malaysia, working and living as the locals. Those precious souvenirs of life are the soul of MAD et LEN approach to perfumery and design. By choosing to use only the finest seasonal ingredients, worked through a small-scale production, Sandra and Alexandre reviewed the traditional apothecary’s craft and achieved the highest standard of quality and pureness while respecting the nature rhythms. The same careful attention is paid to furniture pieces, which are entirely made in cold laminated iron without using any industrial techniques.
Through its perfumes and objects, MAD et LEN aims to bring back the original taste of things, awaking our primal olfactory and tactile senses from the anesthetized sleep of daily life.
