A DREAM UNFURLED
In 2020, against the backdrop of a pandemic, two determined souls embarked on a mission to craft timeless, unisex fragrances steeped in Swiss precision. Assisting their journey was Andreas Wilhelm, an olfactory genius with over two decades in perfume creation. Together, they birthed pernoire's signature scents.
These perfumes, rich in character and narrative, quickly found a global audience. From a dream to six unique perfume personalities, their tale of passion resonates in every bottle.
Today, pernoire is more than a brand; it’s a symbol of dreams turned reality, a fragrance journey that's just beginning.
