A tribute to the origins of Mohamed Rebatchi, inspired by a journey through the Tassili desert.
‘To pay tribute to the origins of Mohamed Rebatchi I drew inspiration from my journey through the Tassili desert in south east Algeria, the traditional region of the Tuareg Ajjer or Tuareg people of the West, and the olfactory sensations I experienced. Waking up in the morning after a night sleeping in a tent, I could smell the tea brewing and cherbet Algerian lemonade, as well as the leather of the camels’ saddles. A true invitation to travel’ – Alienor Massenet

Maison Rebatchi is a perfume house born in a very atypical way: it is above all a human story between a young Franco-Algerian man and some of the biggest names of French perfumery who have decided to accompany him in his dream. Mohamed gave them free rein on the creations.
Maison Rebatchi describes the contrast of its childhood between a Parisian suburb and Algiers: multi-culturality. A fresh take on the independent perfumery market, which is young, accessible and high qualitative at the same time.
Some of the greatest names in perfumery helped Mohamed Rebatchi make his dream come true, conferring credibility to his project. Given free rein, each perfumer took inspiration from a raw material, an accord, a memory or even a specific atmosphere to create a fragrance dedicated to and embodying the spirit of Maison Rebatchi. An invisible link naturally unfolded between the multicultural origins of Mohamed Rebatchi, a bridge between France and the Near East. Also, the founder has surrounded himself with the best designers, master wax makers and craftsmen, capable of forging the elegant and timeless universe he dreamed so much of.
