Maesa Europe and Alinéa Collaborate on Home Fragrance

With fragrance playing an increasingly critical role in design, Maesa has teamed with Alinéa, a European-based retailer of modern trendy and affordable furniture, to develop a complete collection of home fragrance products.

“Alinéa’s clients value interior design, and are self-indulgent and sensitive to product and market trends,” explained Barbara Sonnet-Djebali, Maesa’s commercial manager for France. “The aim, in meeting the needs of these clients, was to offer fragrance products that are attractive, practical and tell a story.”

Four different sensorial worlds have been created allowing each individual to create their own ambience—for an interior that is unique. The Maesa group has made every effort to create a new type of packaging, which is far from the traditional blister pack, while keeping it “affordable and appealing,” in the true spirit of the brand, added Sonnet-Dejebali.
