Curious, adventurous and a risk-taker, it comes to no surprise that Isabelle Michaud dabbled in various career paths before pursuing her childhood passion for perfumes. It is with degrees in criminology and translation, as well as a weathered passport, that Isabelle boarded a plane to France and embarked on her scented journey at the world-renowned ISIPCA school of perfumery in Versailles in 2006. She returned to Canada with a “savoir-faire” and an idea: that of creating a collection of niche fragrances. This is how Monsillage came to life, in December 2009.
Working from a bijou lab, Isabelle shapes essential oils and scent molecules into olfactive portraits inspired by her life and travels. She composes her fragrances one drop at a time until she reaches the desired mood. The final formula is then compounded and bottled by hand in her work studio. Only premium ingredients sourced from the best suppliers in the world are used in her creations.
