Professional Natural Perfumer
Scents of My Life
Tânia Santos is an atypical perfumer, she works as a lawyer and mediator with several academic publications.
She was inspired by a grandmother who was frowned upon for preparing herbal medicines, experienced nature in three different biome regions in Brazil and questioned herself about the cosmetic industry effects on health and skin, all factors that helped nurturing a secret desire to expand knowledge and olfactory experiences on natural perfumes.
Therefore in 2016 she participated on her first Natural Perfume Academy (NPA) course, followed by many other workshops and developments, all which were decisive for the creation of a perfume atelier at her house.
In 2020, during the pandemics, she created Perfumes Naturais & Cia - PN&C which aims to share knowledge and contribute with people that search for self-care and valuation of natural beauty, with respect for the environment. While reinforcing the idea that it is possible to make your own natural perfumes and other basic cosmetics in a safe and gratifying way,
Tânia found amazing people and developed incredible relationships to this day through the connections from this work.
She believes that the perfumer is an apprentice of success from multiple experiences and someone who wishes to, besides living life to its fullest, also cultivate a passion. Being a perfumer is assuming wide open doors to creativity and enchantment from the never ending recombination of nuances.
As a perfume completes and transforms itself on every different skin, it creates an unique and personal experience.
