my whole life led to this moment
Founded in 2016 by Eglija Vaitkevice, an independent artisan perfumer with qualification from Grasse Institute of Perfumery (GIP) in France (2016). I have a master degree in Slavic Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics (1992) and master degree in Public Policy (2009) at Vilnius University in Lithuania.
With EXALTATUM perfumes You have a unique opportunity to discover a scent that it is close to your personality. Each perfume is crafted using the finest quality raw materials and blended by hand. Each scent is very unique, distinctive and, unlike mass produced scents, has a pleasant, long staying power. Every bottle is hand filled with pride, care and attention. Bringing a sense of the personal with all I do.
My business type is SLOW fashion: I only produce new perfume when I feel it is time to launch it, but not because of marketing purposes.
The FREEDOM of creation led me to use the highest concentration of natural and rare ingredients in each perfume. This is a reason, why I make Exaltatum perfumes in small batches and some of them are limited editions.
I value honesty and TRANSPARENCY. The ingredients are listed on perfume leaflets and boxes.
I use highest quality glass bottles made in France in the POCHET glass factory. The luxury book-like perfume boxes are made not for recycling, but to keep the perfume inside the box, avoiding sunlight. I hope the perfume books could find the honourable place on your books shelves.
The perfumes are NOT TESTED on animals and are SAFE to use without adding colorants, GMO products, nano materials, preservatives, phthalates.
the name origin and our values
: the act of raising someone or something in importance: the act of exalting someone or something or the state of being exalted;
: a strong sense of happiness, power, or importance.
The origins of the expression 'exaltatum' come from the Latin language - the 'mother' tongue of European languages and culture which our brand resonates very much.
Exaltatum is the philosophy of our brand. We want to emphasize timeless values, beauty and history. We take reference and influence from most inspiring historic examples as well as most beautiful cultural and artistic pieces.
from art, nature to people's stories
Each individual has different experiences, memories, culture that affects and shapes their lives. Looking in the mirror of oneself you see your personal shadow, your own strengths and demons.
People see each story or myth in their own perspective unique to them. Therefore, we wish our perfumes to be perceived and associated with each customer’s own memories, beliefs and tell their own individual story.
