Summer interview #4: Pierre-Alexis, co-founder of KERZON

Pierre-Alexis, can you introduce yourself in a few words?
Hi ! I am Péa (my parents tried to complicate my life by calling me “Pierre-Alexis”). I am a little over half 70 years old, I live in Paris where I grew up and I spend my days imagining scented treatments with one of my brothers, Etienne. It's good, or you want to know more :-)?

Pierre-Alexis Delaplace KERZON

What was your last trip?
It was in February (and like every year) in Kerala in southern India. We get up at 6 a.m. to surf all morning, we chill the day and we accompany the sunset with a yoga session facing the sea. Hyper cliché ;-) but I assume, it has become my essential ritual since 4 years.


Do you have a secret address to reveal to us?
Well no, it's a secret! But I want to share some clues: It's in Mexico, south of the state of Oaxaca on the Pacific coast. If you search a bit you should find ;-) it has something to do with the moon. Pfff I have already said too much!

What is the secret of a successful vacation for you?
Above all, no program, lots of nature and friends, but not too many, just a small group to make the most of everyone. And the sea, with its tides... it has to be, otherwise I miss it, it's the one that punctuates my days!

On vacation, rather idleness or are you on the move?
Unsurprisingly FARNIENTE! I'm too on the move the rest of the year.

Rather sea or swimming pool?
Haha! What does a swimming pool look like?

The ideal dinner?
A family dish (in large quantities) with friends, or strangers as long as they are funny, we can talk about everything and always with second degree. In fact, it's dinner with you and a good bottle ;-)
The aperitif that smells like the holidays?

Pastagaaaaaa! And don't talk to me about Spritz!

What are your summer suitcase essentials?
A swimsuit, moisturizer and the round Bahia mattress ;-)


What does the holiday smell like?
Obviously Kerzon perfumes! LE SOLEIL for summer and KERMUSK which reminds me of the perfume my grandmother wore.
What book to read this summer?
All those that I haven't had time to read or finish during the year and the Petit Futé or the Routard for the next vacation.

Which nice fleet accessory would you go on vacation with?
The Tulum balloon!

If you could teleport right now, where would you go?
I hesitate because I'm hungry there, so I'll say to my parents' table, for a good Sunday chicken and fries. And afterwards on a sailboat, in the open sea, with a good aperitif.

Where are you going this summer?
In California / Arizona for a nature, desert and outdated motels road trip. I can not wait !

Thanks Pea!

We love everything at Kerzon but we love the scented pouches to slip into your suitcase in summer and the scented mists (Especially "L'eau")
