Casa De Coca
Peru’s treasures, its extraordinary people and its magnificient nature are the inspiration for the creation of Casa De Coca and the development of its fragrances. The three perfumes Chasqui, Paq’os and Noche de Coca are the starting point of the Casa De Coca brand, which represent an interpretation of the mystic universe of the Andes. The brand is a tribute to the magic of the leaf and encourages to discover this world. The fragrances themselves were created by one of the world’s most renowned perfumers.
Casa De Coca uses exclusive oils for the creation of the perfumes, which are blended in a factory in France’s Grasse, world center of Haute Parfumerie. The fragrances contain elements of the Inca tradition, such as pink pepper oil, which is directly brought to Europe from Peru. Bottled by hand, the design of the flask is topped by a modern metal gem as cap, which outlines the natural structure of a coca leaf. The colours of the flasks reflect the aura of the specific perfumes.
Founder Beatrice Graf
The founder of Casa De Coca is German-Peruvian Beatrice Graf. Having grown up with both cultures, she now lives in Munich and works as Senior Editor at VOGUE.
The desire to capture the history of the Inca in unique fragrances led to a collaboration with perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour. Together, they set out on the path of the Inca for this very personal project. Because of its intimate ties with Peru, Casa De Coca supports initiatives focusing on education.
Parfumeur Bertrand Duchaufour
Renowned French perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour is the creator behind the fragrances. He is known by his work for Dior, Givenchy or even Comme des Garçons, Duchaufour and his extravagant and multi-layered signature.
The sites of Machu Picchu and Sacsayhuaman have been a travel destination for Bertrand Duchaufour since his youth. For Casa De Coca, he newly interpreted the Inca universe with a modern vision. Somehow, Casa De Coca was also a matter of heart for Bertrand Duchaufour.
Designer Christian von der Heide
The look of the brand, as well as the design of the bottle, were created by Hamburg-based product designer Christian von der Heide.
Christian von der Heide represents a sophisticated product language. His collaborations include designs for Dita Von Teese Parfumes, Mafalda von Hessen or Y3, the collaboration between Adidas and Yohji Yamamoto. With Beatrice Graf he shares an interest in extraordinary and innovative aesthetics. Casa De Coca is another highlight.
