With an unsual course of life, Cecile is sparkling and more, a passionate of champagne and wines, ever since her childhood.It all starts with a trip to England, to improve her english. But,very soon afterwards, her passion catches up her again, and she decides and chooses to make a career of it. Today, she is at the head of her own school, the Wine Hampshire School. Therefore, her credo is “I consider the love of wine and champagne a way of life for myself and it’s connection with tastes is my passion”.

My collection of portraits continues… It is about Pierre Dinand this week : a man who has dedicated his life to the design of perfume flacons. His name is unknown to the general public, but we all know Opium from YSL, Femme from Rochas, Amarige from Givenchy, Eternity from Calvin Klein, Armani from Armani, Eau Dynamisante from Clarins… just to mention a few. Even after fifty years of his career, he still draws and dreams about new flacons with just as much passion. For him, to design a flacon can be compared to drawing a house… It is the house of the perfume ! So, let’s now meet this lively man.
