Ruta Degutyte, born in Lithuania, conquered the corporate world for the first time before embarking on her dream of making perfume. Fluent in five languages and with an MBA in international business, she traveled around the world as a business consultant for 15 years.
Always encouraged by her philosopher parents to “follow their dreams, no matter what”, it was during an assignment in Sydney in 2012 that made Ruta venture and fulfill her vision.
“Art de Parfum” was born and incorporated in London in 2015, during three years of research, the collection of the best raw materials, the choice of a perfumer and the creation of the production.
“‘Art de Parfum’ is guided by a French aesthetic and, more specifically, the aesthetics of relaxed and sexually provocative style on the Riviera. For me, the south of France is probably the most liberating place in the world. Aspire sensuality, love, passion, audacity, a particularly refined sense of taste, a relaxed way, everything that triggers my creativity”.
