Pedro Simões Dias, Comporta Perfumes founder, is a lawyer who specialises in Internet law and copyrights. Pedro always had a passion about perfumes and loved to appreciate them and many years ago started to collect perfumes and study perfumery.
Launched a blog, with a lot of success where he reviewed niche perfumes and also developed a concept around giving masterclasses to share with others his passion for scents and perfumes. After many years growing this passion to almost mastering it Pedro has been challenged to move out of the comfort zone and “to think” on the Portuguese perfumery.
Portugal had on the XIX century and until late 1930’s many small perfume brands but all faded away. Since then, there wasn’t a single line of niche perfumery in Portugal, so Pedro decided to start by creating a set of perfumes, which aim to recreate experiences, olfactory moments and stories around Comporta, this “boho chic” village on the northern Alentejo coast, in Portugal.
And so, in 2017, COMPORTA Perfumes was born. This unique place inspired Pedro and four perfumers, Luca Maffei, Béatrice Aguilar, Daniel Josier and Stéphanie Bakouche, to bring to life the dream of a Comporta inspired perfume line.
Comporta Perfumes includes eight different intimate fragrances, inspired by and representing experiences and memories from Comporta – one of Europe’s most exclusive destinations and well-kept secrets. Its latest and 9th fragrance was recently launched “A Olhar Trancoso” brings a tropical twist to the collection, taking us on an olfactory journey to the Brazilian beaches of Trancoso.
