The fragrance industry has been saturated by popular brands run by the same small group for decades. An unchanging status quo leads to stagnation - a lack of diversity leads to a lack of creativity. When we expand our worlds, magic is born.
Yasmine Jones and Funmi Monet came together to create a perfume that captures the essence of humankind, love and unity, and to celebrate the magic of connection, confidence, sensuality, and pleasure.
Yasmine had been a long-time admirer of Funmi and her knowledge of fragrance; she was entranced by her bold, passionate, authentic, and compassionate presence. She knew that this was a person she wanted to create something entirely new with, and that trusting Funmi’s intuition would result in a perfume unlike any other.
They collaborated with an expert perfumery team from France, who aided in combining the visions of these two incredible women. After enduring the creative process, Exalté was born. A bottle that is so much more than perfume, it's an ally to tap into your inner fire, an aroma to remind you of how beautiful you truly are. An ode to the language of roses.
