For over twenty years, Thomas De Monaco has been working as a creative director and photographer between Paris and Zurich, working for international clients in the premium and luxury industries – with names like Hermès, Dior, YSL, Armani, Moët & Chandon, Hennessy, Rolex, Cartier, and Piaget, to name a few.
In December 2020, after more than three years of development, he launched his first fragrance for Thomas De Monaco Parfums. In 2022 the second collection followed, Eau Coeur and Grand Beau. Both scents are designed for the here and now, to be savored and indulged in, and long-lasting, deliberately designed with beautiful raw materials and contemporary molecules.
“As a photographer, I always begin with an image that the scent should convey. I start with a solid base, which lies somewhere between the mid and dry notes, without paying much attention to the raw materials; instead. An intense and long-lasting mood is created. Only then do I go into the upper tones and build out the melody. Layer by layer, I put one layer on top of the other until the song, or the whole picture, is right - and the fragrance feels complete.
