Born and raised in Heraklion, Crete, Theodoros Kalotinis developed a deep connection to nature and fragrances from a young age. The seeds of this love were sown during his school years with a hobby of collecting herbs and flowers for his herbarium, nurtured by his grandmother, a native of Smirni. Weekend games involved identifying different spices and herbs, honing his sense of smell—a fun pastime that would become a lifelong skill. With time, this nature enthusiast transformed into a perfume collector, eventually driven by a desire to create his own unique scent using elements from Greek nature. After tireless testing and refining, he devised a unique process of combining high-quality essential oils with alcohol distilled from natural grapes.
Today, Theodoros Kalotinis Perfumer stands as a renowned name in the world of artisan perfume. This first Greek house of artisan perfume has made a mark by beautifully transforming elements of nature into mesmerizing fragrances. The brand's global recognition escalated when Theodoros was honored with crafting personal perfumes for the Prince of Wales, Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla in 2018. Theodoros Kalotinis Perfumer has since become a trusted name among a host of Greek and international celebrities, revered for its distinctive and authentic scents. The brand skillfully blends timeless classicism with superior natural substances, captivating the hearts of fragrance enthusiasts worldwide.
