Rasei had been an avid collector before he started making perfumes of his own. He decided to experiment with creation himself to fuel his passion further. However, his hobby quickly turned into him mastering the art of perfumery. Once his friends and family started praising his perfumes and requesting bespoke perfumes, he realized that his creations could match up to the best of luxury brands. However, his primary goal before embarking on his journey was to collect the best raw materials. Initially, he struggled to find perfection, but now he is one of the most reputed perfumers in the world.
