Brand Portrait: Aura Perfume (formerly: Bijon)
It all began with the search for a Holy Grail! Oliver Babic was looking for a very special fragrance ? one that spoke of sweet woods, silky iris, citrus, and deep amber. But the search would take him down a long and winding road through countless perfumeries. Until one day he discovered that his perfect fragrance was not yet to be found in one single perfume but in fragments collected from a range of his favourite scents and notes.
Gradually the desire to create his own fragrance grew, and so Oliver Babic bought all the raw materials he thought he might need and taught himself to make perfume in a laboratory he set up in his cellar. Unfortunately, two intensive years of experimenting and testing led to nothing ? or at least did not result in the perfume that Oliver saw so clearly in his mind?s eye.
Thus, Babic approached Cecile Zarokian, the perfumer, and with her help, founded the Bijon label.
