The founder's passion: Be the Absolute you.

"Reinvented Perfumery"

 Bénédicte Foucart, Founder of Valeur Absolue
A global business leader, humanitarian and mother of three who left a successful career in the luxury fragrance industry to follow her passion – to empower women to create more
positive energy in their lives.
After interviewing women of all ages around the world, Bénédicte identified a need for an alternative approach to perfume: healthier, anchored in sustainable values, born from differentiated and meaningful creativity.
She also identified seven emotions that are key to a woman’s sense of well-being and empowerment.
Working with aromachologists, lithotherapists, neuroscientists and the best perfumers in the world, Bénédicte created the Valeur Absolue collection of perfumes, or “elixirs of well-being”, and a self-nurturing daily ritual for women of every age.
Carefully selected natural ingredients, known for their positive impact on the human psychology, make Valeur Absolue the ultimate combination of luxury fragrance and well-being.

Bénédicte says, “I think it’s very important to start each day with the right energy in order to ‘be the absolute you.  This is why fragrance is the heart of our perfumes and the semi-precious stones are their soul. Our perfume-elixirs are pure treasures of nature that we believe can enhance well-being and put more smiles into women’s lives.”
