Sidonie is Parisian but her calling came during a summer internship with Robertet in Grasse. She became a perfumer in 2006 under the mentorship of Michel Amairac. He instilled in her his knowledge and a taste for short and modern formulas in which each raw material has a purpose.
She likes unrefined materials and sometimes dark ones like patchouli or papyrus, as well as animal notes with stronger amber tones like labdanum. In her own words, "I love their raw and noble side; toning them down while preserving their personality is an interesting process." Thanks to Robertet, she can work with the most noble natural raw materials.
As a perfumer, she finds inspiration in all the things around her: a glass of wine, the smell of cigar, or even, the atmosphere of a book…
Among her many creations, Sidonie Lancesseur created three fragrances for By Kilian (Incence Oud, Cruel Intentions, and Straight to Heaven), and Lumière Blanche, her first fragrance for Olfactive Studio in 2012.
