Rupert Peter Landendinger grew up in a Rococo castle in the Bavarian countryside, which had a profound influence on him. His earliest memories revolve around the ornate rooms, high ceilings, arresting artwork and mirrors in the enormous interior. In the regal surroundings outside was a lush garden with an abundance of fragrant flowers. A memory mixed with the scents emanating from the succulent fruits, vegetables and the deep forest nearby.

The beauty. The grandeur. The ambience. The intoxicating intermingling of aromas. It all sparked a passion for scents, leaving an indelible impression on him forever.
