Maria Christofilis

Maria Christofilis is a Seattle native with deep European roots. From the time she was three years old she summered abroad with her family—becoming fluent in Greek and Italian while absorbing European cultures and lifestyles. Since her childhood she has studied, lived and worked in the most romantic cities of Europe. 

The Fleur09 story begins.

In 2009, Maria moved to New York City—while living there she met and began working with some of the most celebrated perfumers in the world. Her welcome by this inner circle of distinguished perfumers was highlighted by a personal gift from master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, of the prestigious Swiss fragrance house, Givaudan. Named Fleur09 – the essence of the flower, it immediately became Maria’s coveted scent and a personal treasure. And the more she wore it, the more she realized it was a treasure to be shared. In 2012 with the exclusive launch of Fleur09 parfum, the Maria Christofilis brand was born.

Calabrian bergamot essence, Davana essence India, Rose petal water extract Turkey, Schecuan pepper essence.

"Nothing makes the heart skip a beat more intensely than finding a long forgotten letter from a loved one, maybe inside the pages of a book, maybe in the bottom of a rarely opened drawer. Our reading stops at every word and our eyes become teary. We revive not only the moment those lines describe, we live again that same instant when we read the letter for the first time. Just like our memory gets a bolt because of a scent, written words etch themselves in our souls and make us feel stronger, more loved, more alive."

Inspired by how letters change our world and the lost tradition of letter writing, I was inspired to create a scent that would capture the essence of a hand written love letter and this fading tradition by encapsulating a letter in a single bottle.

In collaboration with master perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux, Missive15 -- the essence of a love letter was created.
