Manos Gerakinis, the first Greek luxury niche perfume brand, was founded in 2014. It all started a year earlier, with our founder and creative director’s wish to create a bespoke fragrance for himself. During the process, he opted for the most exquisite raw materials for what was meant to be a statement fragrance with a strong personality. Quality, artistry, and longevity became key values of the brand, whose products are already available for sale in 17 countries (including Greece, USA, UK, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Brazil, and Kuwait).
Eventually named “Sillage Royal“, and having taken more than nine months to complete, Manos decided to make this head-turning fragrance available to everyone; it would be the first release of his Perfume House. It was the beginning of a creative journey that has led to more supreme-quality fragrances, precious limited editions, important artistic collaborations, and undiminished passion for envisioning the perfumes to come. The experience of Manos Gerakinis’s universe is becoming increasingly multisensory: next to the beautiful perfumes, the House also proposes high-quality candles and fine silk scarves, enriching the olfactory journey with sight and touch.
