A perfume without a soul is like an empty box. That is why a true brand needs true people behind the scenes to fill it with a heart and soul.
Ivo Jacobs and Myriam Nussbaum both write the history and the futur of Intensity. They launched their first perfume store in Antwerp in 2005 and never stopped searching for innovating and particular perfumes.
During their more then 15 years of experience in the perfume business, Myriam Nussbaum and Ivo Jacobs felt the lack of fine and pure perfumes in the industry. This feeling was the trigger to go for better and greater than all these commercial mass products, an intense and profound desire to surpass the existing situation. That is how Intensity was born.
Actually, Intensity finds its origins in Ghent, with the encounter of the elderly perfumer Mister Hugo Collumbien ( 92 years old when they met), who sold them his little perfume production house. Before that Ivo and Myriam had always compliantly bought their perfumes in France for their boutique. Though, with the transmission of Mr. Collumbiens know-how and practice, they both discovered quite some mysteries and inside information about perfume production. This enabled them to negociate with the most outstanding perfume laboratories and require special demands in order to launch the most exquisite perfumes. Still, granting the perfumers all liberty to conceptualize with a free mind the most gorgeous and rare pearls.
As time passed, even the most notorious laboratories created some absolute master pieces for Intensity.
Intensity is without a doubt a veritable treasure and great project in which Ivo and Myriam committed themselves for more than 15 years with all their love, knowledge and dedication.
