Our Philosophy

What’s in a Perfume?
Does it captivate the essence of time? Is perfume the art that makes memory speak?

Every single one of our creations is a bigger reflection of history, feelings, passion, art, and social change. These traits are artistically blended to create the collection of Manos Gerakinis.

The journey starts with Manos Gerakinis through his childhood memories in Kavala, Greece along with the story of his family originating from Istanbul.

His memories of the cultivation of saffron, tobacco, labdanum, and honey amongst others, as his natural talent for painting as well as history, philosophy and culture are the founding stones of the brand.

The journey continues in London, where Manos Gerakinis resides for more than a decade and travels around the world while working in luxury.

He develops exquisite taste and sophistication, an eye for detail, and a deep appreciation of the arts and craftsmanship.

During the following years, new images and feelings are added; traveling enriches the experience with the true meaning of life by exploring the senses and appreciating pure beauty.

Manos Gerakinis Parfums, the first niche luxury Greek perfume house explores the values of life and different cultures. Our purpose is to embrace Individuality and so we break the boundaries, floating between the East and the West, the male and the female, the simplicity and the extravagance.

The experience becomes multisensory by adding home fragrances and scarves, to further enrich the olfactory journey with sight and touch.

The House of Manos Gerakinis is free-spirited and contemporary with a rich history of self-expression encouraging the individual’s true beauty to emerge.
