Johanna

Monange

Our Founder

Maison 21G, created in 2020, arose from Johanna Monange’s passion and 20 years of experience working alongside renowned brands and perfumers as a scent designer and a creative director in Paris, New York, Beijing, and Singapore. She has played a vital role in the creation of worldwide bestsellers, including La Vie est Belle by Lancôme, One Million by Paco Rabane, and Aqua di Gioia by Armani.

She was exhausted from watching this beautiful industry losing its soul and settling for one-size-fits-all scents, with less and less quality and character across the board. So for the first time in perfumery, she decided to break convention by putting you in direct contact with Haute Couture natural essences.

Johanna aspires to find the right scent for each individual, uniquely suited to their personality: a fragrance that enables them to fulfil all their intimate desires in life. You are now empowered to blend your very own perfume, using only clean, vegan and sustainable products, healthy for your skin and mood. All the bottles are also refillable and their packagings are plastic free.

World renowned master perfumers

Partnering with the most acclaimed French and international ‘Noses’ from IFF, Maison 21G Paris takes flawless natural ingredients compositions, weaving them into rare scents accessible to all.

Finesse, precision, elegance and singularity have given life to Haute Couture compositions for you to blend.
