Lady Hellfire and I were recently invited to a press day at the Mane Fragrance House to attend a press day for Satiskin who introduced us to their new products to be launched for the festive season.
When selecting a fragrance for Satiskin’s range of bath time and hand wash products, the brand chose an international fragrance house that understood the importance of smell to women. The globally acclaimed Mane fragrance house established in 1871 is the creator of numerous Satiskin fragrances, and as sensations enthusiasts they are one of Satiskin’s chosen fragrance partners.
We were given an overview of how fragrances are created and how the elements all work together to create that perfect fragrance.
“Whether we enhance people’s daily experiences or create timeless fragrances, we capture what moves,” says MANE Director of Fragrances for South Africa, Olivier Cebe. “At MANE, we create emotions by embodying our inspiration into our creations through innovation and technology.” MANE perfumers based at creative centres around the world are able to select the best raw materials, the finest and most unique specialty ingredients and combine these with biotechnologies and synthetic molecules to create MANE’s next generation of fragrances.
Afterwards we were given a quick tour of the facilities by Oliver Cebe – MANE Director of Fragrances.

The GC System acts like a digital nose to evaluate al the frangrances within a perfume or product making the job of identifying which fragrances are in a product much easier than in the old days.
and then another presentation by Karen who introduced the new ranges to be launched for the festive season.
Karen says that another important element when choosing a fragrance is to understand that people have different preferences. Our sense of smell creates strong emotions and passion. Satiskin together with acclaimed fragrance houses identify fragrant trends based on the latest combinations, popular ingredients and creativity. “Satiskin understands what women want from their bath time experience and the very important role that fragrance plays in their indulgence.”
All in all it was a very informative day and the fact that we met the only female perfumist, Fabienne Bourhis, in South Africa, made it an even more special day.
We are very thankful for the information sharing sessions. We look forward to reviewing some of the products we received in due time.
Have a pouty perfect day!
