A DOCUMENTARY FILM
BY CLÉMENT BEAUVAIS AND ARTHUR DE KERSAUSON
« THIS DOCUMENTARY FILM UNVEILS THE FASCINATING ROLE OF THE NOSE, A MYSTERIOUS CRAFT BEHIND AN OBJECT THAT ALL KNOW BUT VERY FEW UNDERSTAND. »
For the first time in a documentary feature, the prestigious House of Dior opened its doors to show the wonders of perfume creation.
Travelers at heart, Arthur de Kersauson and Clément Beauvais followed François Demachy for two years and over 14 countries, from Grasse to the other side of the world, in his search for inspiration and the most precious raw materials.
A true « smell good movie », NOSE sheds light on one of the most secret jobs in the world.
A GLOBAL EXPLORER
From the may roses of Grasse to Calabrian bergamot, Indonesian patchouli and Sri Lankan sandalwood, NOSE is an incredible journey, during which we discover the protected small industries and the unique regions that continue to live on, thanks to the support of a house that wants to give its perfumes the finest raw materials.
Along the way, we cross paths with those who cultivate these natural wonders, helping precious craftsmanship and traditional expertise endure, and we witness firsthand the capital importance of the human bonds that are forged over a shared desire to bring beauty to life in a scent.
Over the past 15 years, he has patiently established numerous partnerships with the young generation of organic flower producers, thereby ensuring that Dior fragrances enjoy the finest flowers, while also supporting the revival of his region. Elsewhere, from Sri Lanka to India and from Italy to Nosy Be, this tireless traveller, has continued to develop the industries that ensure Dior perfumes have the noblest ingredients possible.

“WITH NOSE, WE WANTED TO TAKE THE IDEA OF SOVEREIGN NATURE EVEN FURTHER, EXPLORING UNEXPECTED AESTHETIC AND EMOTIONAL TERRAIN, TO TRY AND UNCOVER THE MYSTERY OF A PERFUME”
- ARTHUR DE KERSAUSON
"NOSE suit François comme un guide mais ce film est véritablement peuplé d’héroïnes et de héros du quotidien. NOSE est attaché à la terre et aux merveilles qu’elle peut encore nous prodiguer."
