Marie Aoun evokes the distinct mood of cashmere


This May, the Trenery Guild has 
collaborated with artisanal parfumier Marie 
Aoun, founder of Saint d’Ici, in a partnership 
that evokes the distinct mood of cashmere. 

After spending a decade in the fashion industry, 
it was Aoun’s passion for gardening where she 
discovered her love of botanicals and natural 
perfume. Aoun trained with Dominique Dubrana 
of La Via del Profumo, a natural perfumery 
she admires in Italy, learning the intricate and 
precise craft of creating scents naturally.

It is this tireless creative pursuit of quality 
and perfection that makes Aoun a clear 
collaborator for the Trenery Guild.

Working hard to create her exclusive ranges, 
her products are made with ethically-sourced 
ingredients from farmers that abide by the best 
practices of sustainable farming.

Woman at work: Marie Aoun mixing the ingredients to make a candle. 

“The way you build perfumes naturally is very 
different. With synthetic perfumes, you can have 
up to 300 ingredients because you have the ability 
to isolate each individual element of the scent.

"Natural perfumery is akin to alchemy, there’s 
a definitive art to the blending in pursuit of the 
metaphorical gold,” says Aoun.

The Saint D’Ici x Trenery Guild candle is created with 
a South African beeswax base, admired for its warm, 
honeyed notes. Beeswax is an incomparable natural 
wax that provides a beautiful burn and purifies 
the ambient air in the process. 

Further ingredients 
include the essential oil Namibian Myrrh; ouhout, an 
evergreen tree native to southern Africa; and vetiver, 
a beautifully fragrant grass native to India. All this results a
 stunning, calming scent that evokes the 
richness of cashmere.
