" I was looking for specific products for my very dry skin but was not satisfied with the products I was finding on the market. I told myself, you’ve got to use the knowledge that you have to solve your skincare issues. This is how I decided to make my own natural products."
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BUSINESS?
My name is Laure Barry, Nose and Founder of Gold Essence Cosmetics. My father was a Flight Attendant and my mother is a Fashion Designer. Since my very young age I developed a passion for travel. After my high school diploma in experimental science, I decided to move to France to study chemical engineering mostly because my best friend, Marie Helene, was in the same field. The funny part is that, I initially choose that area of study because she was there, but finally she decided to move to something else she found more exciting while I decided to pursue. I was looking for specific products for my very dry skin but was not satisfied with the products I was finding on the market. I told myself “You’ve got to use the knowledge that you have to solve your skincare issues”. This is how I decided to make my own natural products. It was in the beginning of 2004. At that time, some family members started seeing a great improvement on my skin ad hair and asked me if I could also make products for them. They were using my products and where experiencing the same results.

Nowadays, perfume is defined as being a mixture of fragrant essential oils or aroma compounds, fixatives and solvents used to give the human body, animals, food, objects and living spaces “a pleasant scent.” Perfume is derived from the Latin word, “per fumus”, meaning through smoke. It was widely used in the evolution of Perfumery (the art of making perfume) which is linked to the Human History. Since antiquity; in Africa, and especially in Egypt; the art of associating odors to create complex smells is already known and fragrance is also gradually associated with feminine beauty through Queen Cleopatra who used it in ointments or in scented baths as a powerful tool of seduction. Fragrance making is the perfect symphony between the science of mixing “scented” molecules and the art of making people travel through the story that your perfume is telling.
