Our Story

Philip et celia nicolosi

Philip Nicolosi - A passionate fragrance designer

A family business rooted in the values ​​of craftsmanship and authenticity. Nicolosi Créations is the result of an olfactory adventure, started in 2004 by Philip Nicolosi, passionate about Provencal perfume. Located in the heart of the country, he creates his scents, room scents and cosmetics. Joined today by his daughter, Célia Nicolosi, the adventure continues in family.

From the garage of the family home where the first scents were developed to the Aiglun laboratory built in 2008, many steps have been taken and the range has now been well developed.

In 2014 the adventure continued with the opening of a boutique in the center of Digne-les-Bains, historic capital of Lavender. A year later the Lavender Museum of Digne-les-Bains appeared on the first floor of the boutique as part of a partnership with the UNESCO Geopark of Haute Provence.

 

Today, we continue to represent Provence and French craftsmanship as best we can, through quality products made by hand. Our products are now distributed in more than 12 countries around the globe, but we remain committed to our terroir and to working with local producers to continue developing products that make sense: enhancing the quality and know-how of our terroir.

Digne-les-Bains' Lavender Museum

lavender museum digne

Since June 2015, the boutique features a Sound-and-Light Lavender Museum on the second floor, in tribute to this little bleue flower, the symbol of Digne-les-Bains.

 The Sound and Light visit will take you back to a time when lavender was cut by hand in the mountains. It will take you through an incredible journey, showing you the beauty but also the harshness of this job thanks to the memories and stories of our Ancients who share their experience with you. Discover the wonderful landscapes that Provence has to offer.

Learn more about lavender distillation thanks to the demonstrations taking place all summer long in the patio area of the museum.
