Perfume house Atelier Materi raises €1 million to accelerate growth 

The high-end perfume house Atelier Materi announces a first round of financing of 1 million euros to accelerate its international development in the niche perfume market. Accompanied by Colibri Advisory and DS Avocats, this financing operation was carried out with Crédit Agricole Aquitaine Expansion and a group of private investors. 

Contemporary vision and handcrafted luxury

Founded in late 2019 by Véronique Le Bihan, Atelier Materi offers a singular, contemporary perfumery where each fragrance revisits a raw material, meticulously crafted by the perfumer. The House combines its contemporary outlook with artisanal know-how, as seen in its dark blue bottle adorned with a concrete cap with golden highlights, entirely handcrafted in a Parisian workshop.

Between authenticity, creativity and responsibility, Atelier Materi promotes the idea of a new luxury that takes the time to make.

The responsible luxury House, which has enjoyed triple-digit growth every year since its launch, is present in 130 selective points of sale across twenty countries. The eight-perfume collection is available in department stores (La Samaritaine in Paris, KaDeWe in Berlin, Harvey Nichols in Ryad...), independent perfumeries (Jovoy in Paris, Le Nez Insurgé in Bordeaux, Spitzenhaus in Zurich...) and concept stores (Dover Street Market in Paris, 10 Corso Como in Milan...).

Fundraising drives Atelier Materi's dynamism 

By raising 1 million euros, the fashion house intends to accelerate its deployment (international distribution and e-commerce sales) by strengthening its teams and raising its profile.

Colibri Advisory (Julie Lauré and Pierre-Jean Gaudel) and the law firm DS (Claire Champion, Partner and Pierre-Louis Boret, Senior Associate) supported the fundraising.

"In creating Atelier Materi, I wanted to propose a new vision of perfumery, more human and responsible, by putting nature, craftsmanship and local production back at the heart of the project, says Véronique Le Bihan, founder and president of Atelier Materi. I would like to thank our various investors, who share the same values, for supporting us in this new chapter of our history, enabling us to accelerate our development with confidence.

Xavier Hittos, Head of Crédit Agricole Aquitaine Expansion, adds: "Atelier Materi is a French haute parfumerie house that emphasizes its creative commitment while adhering to a responsible luxury approach. Combining contemporary vision and artisanal know-how, the company is experiencing sustained growth, with genuine international recognition. We are proud to participate in a new phase of its development.
