Early Life and Education
Rania Naim began her career in stylist, but ultimately transitioned into perfumery due to her love of scents. Inspired by perfume’s ability to allow her to express artistic sensibilities and creative genius without restrictions or boundaries, Rania established Rania Naim Atelier which would allow her to unleash all her artistic expression with no limitations imposed upon it.
Stephane Humbert Lucas is a Parisian perfumer born with synesthesia – an anomalous neurological condition which causes one sense to trigger another – who discovered that each material and accord in fragrance vibrated with different colors that allowed him to create his captivating and distinctive aromas.
He debuted his inaugural collection in 2012, drawing upon his love of the Orient as the birthplace of civilization. His fragrances incorporate ingredients such as Bulgarian rose, Italian lemon, three types of cedar wood, frankincense, myrrh and patchouli into each fragrance.
Lucas perfume’s scents reflect his deep appreciation of art and Middle Eastern culture, featuring scents like Crying of Evil or Mortal Skin with stories to tell from history. Each has their own tale to share.
Lucas, trained as a painter, utilizes his artistic sensibilities to craft exquisite fragrances. He pays careful attention to each composition’s harmony and contradiction as he observes its development; capturing thoughts, notes, poetry and images which come through him to produce unique fragrances that stand apart.
Every piece from 777 Collection is like an easel where notes, materials and accords are gradually inscribed over time. Inspired by painting, literature and music as well as synesthetic abilities and artistic influences from painting, literature and music; it includes Taklamakan woody-spicy snack and oriental sweet Khol de Bahrein to name just two of their best-selling creations.

777 O Hira is an aromatic fantasy of fossilized amber that conjures memories of distant shorelines adorned with shells and minerals, caves dripping with salty water where spice boats cruise by, and caves filled with fragrant incense-smoke that drift past on spice boat voyages.

The 777 series of scents embodies this concept perfectly.
