The journey starts with Manos Gerakinis through his childhood memories in Kavala, Greece along with the story of his family originating from Istanbul.
His memories of the cultivation of saffron, tobacco, labdanum and honey amongst others, his natural talent for painting as well as history, philosophy and culture are the founding stones of the brand.
The journey continues in London, where Manos Gerakinis resides for more than a decade and travels around the world while working in luxury. He develops an exquisite taste and sophistication, an eye for detail and a deep appreciation of the arts and craftsmanship.
During the following years, new images and feelings are added; traveling enriches the experience with the true meaning of life by exploring the senses and appreciating pure beauty.
Manos Gerakinis is an artist who started painting in a young age and developed his style through his life journey. His artistic style is ethereal, abstract and offers a contemporary approach to classic meanings such as Love, Freedom and Harmony.
In 2014, instead of brushes he chose essential oils to express himself and started his own niche luxury perfume brand, Manos Gerakinis Parfums, available in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Latvia, Greece, Belgium, Czech Republic, the UK and in the USA.
Manos Gerakinis was born in North Greece but lived abroad most of his life. Traveling with his family from a young age, he was charmed by different cultures while growing to love classical music and developing his natural talent for painting.
His grandmother who was a fine art lover, introduced him to the french ‘Savoir Faire’ and insisted on him taking painting classes for almost ten years. Manos Gerakinis was born a dreamer and he was raised to be an artist who invites you to explore his world.
