On the topic of Grasse and its floral extravaganza being inspirational, Martine Micallef and Geoffrey Nejman state on their website:
"Each day Grasse awakens our senses by the splendour of its terroir. In this paradise illuminated by a languid sunshine, through its fields and alleyways, the air is filled with the penetrating notes released by an army of jasmine, roses, iris, tuberose, violets, orange blossoms, citrus fruits, aromatic plants... Such is the palette reflected by our creations, the mirror of a luminosity, a majestic nature, a history as well as the embodiment of our lifestyle on the Riviera. This is where we live, where we create."
