The photo above was taken in the 1950s and shows Arlette and Yuri Gutsatz in India, where Yuri’s work took them for six years. They were a close knit couple who remained devoted to each for over six decades, only parted by Yuri’s death in 2005. Arlette was a constant support to Yuri throughout his career, from post war Paris to the twenty first century. Their love was truly legendary and she, his inspiration and muse. Without Arlette, our maison de parfum would not be what it is today.
