Antonio Alessandria was born in Catania,Sicily on March 30th 1971. He revealed an early passion for everything related to the senses. He grew up between his mother’s fashion atelier and the seduction of classical music thanks to his sister’s piano studies. However, he chose to follow scientific studies and graduated in Electronic Engineering. He started working for a major company in the semiconductor industry, but he never forgot his early passions. Intrigued since childhood by the world of perfume, he had a revelation when he came across the world of artistic perfumery. From that moment he decided to start a professional training in perfumery, so he attended Mouillettes and Co. in Italy and Cinquième Sens in Paris. After these studies Antonio had the opportunity to deepen his knowledge in formulation thanks to the help of some independent affirmed perfumers.

Meanwhile, the desire to share his passion with people led him to start a new adventure: the creation of a perfumery shop in Catania, focused only on artistic perfumery. He imagined a warm intimate place, a timeless environment which would entertain people with the histories of perfumes and his love for beautiful perfumery creations. The opening of the shop, Boudoir 36, took place on October 31st , 2005. In less than ten years Boudoir 36 has become famous and Antonio Alessandria’s know-how and expertise are recognized in Italy and abroad.
