The creative force behind LAFCO New York (Luxury Articles Fragrance Co.), Vincent LaRouche spots beauty and inspiration in unlikely places. In 2001, after years working in Paris haute couture, he moved to New York to take on a new challenge: re-creating the image of LAFCOs diverse brands. Whether working on concepts for luxury soap, body care, and candle lines or designing chic stateside boutiques for legendary Italian apothecary Santa Maria Novella, he hunts back-street boutiques, vintage shops, and flea markets in France, Italy, Portugal, and the U.S. for the unusual, the original, the chic, and the quirky.
