Flickers of nostalgia contrast with a world of tender flowers in pastels, shades of white jasmine and orange blossom, dusky pink of rose warda and the reds and greens of geranium.
Kabeah is a French fragrance brand founded by Tunisian Creator Khedija Ben Ayed.
It is a collection of olfactory memories capturing an enchanted childhood in Tunisia, softly perfumed by nature and family olfactory inheritage.
Kabeah’s first collection « Secret » is about intimate memories decorated with flowers, blending notes which add glowing light and vibrant color to musing of a charmed childhood, stirring emotions and reimagining a true “jardin d’enfance”in Tunisia.
Khedija will continue to explore other flowers and countries in the future by creating new collections and fragrant projects.
The Founder – Khedija Ben Ayed
We all have within ourselves the seeds of our dreams. Very much like real seeds carried away by wind or birds, our dreams will eventually grow from the seeds and blossom – at the mercy of chance and fate … pushed by a strong desire. Khedija carries the seed of Perfume. Growing up in the Mediterranean region, she flourished in her grandmother’s jasmine-filled garden as well as in her mother’s garden.
As an adult, she relocated to Paris to follow a Business School preparation course and later completed a Master’s Degree in Fashion Promotion and Communication. However, her deeply-rooted dream never faltered. She only felt fulfilled when surrounded by the wonderful scents found in what she calls her Secret Garden. Understanding her profound love of perfumes, her father encouraged her to launch her own fragrance line.
Therefore, in the summer of 2016, Khedija traveled to Grasse, France. There, she began an internship where she learned everything about fragrance compounds and the art of composing a perfume. Her brand, Kabeah, was ready to take off. As Kabeah's newly appointed Art Director, Khedija wants to share with the world her most-cherished scented memories. Discover her fragrance line freshly turned towards the future.
The Perfumer – Stéphanie Bakouche
Perfumery has been Stéphanie’s true love since childhood. At five years old, Stéphanie first declared her passion for perfumery with a statement to her parents : ‘when I am older, I want to create perfumes!’.
25 years later, she created Invasion Barbare (MDDI), a starred fragrance by one of the most fragrance expert, Luca Turin.
With strength and pugnacity, following the paths of great perfumers’ philosophy such as Edmond Roudnitska or Bertrand Duchaufour with whom she worked for 7 years, Stéphanie founded her own lab, SENSABA, located in Grasse, Chemin de la rose de mai.
There, Stéphanie formulates perfumes, inspired by her Morrocan roots, the tradition of Grasse or the craziness of Parisian life.
