Mika the Alchemist

ART & ALCHEMY® stands at the crossroads of fragrance and theater, an innovative fusion crafted by the artist Mïka Tremblay. As a perfumer and storyteller, Mïka seamlessly intertwines fragrances with narratives, drawing inspiration from a background deeply rooted in the arts. From the grand halls of music conservatories to the vibrant stages of musical theater, Mïka's journey unfolds as a symphony of diverse experiences, masterfully blending classical traditions with modern storytelling techniques.

Mïka's fascination with fragrances began in childhood, where the aromatic allure of jasmine flowers and his mother's perfume collection sparked his imagination. Perfumery emerged as a captivating medium for expanding his storytelling horizons, merging his theatrical background with the evocative power of scent.

Growing up as an outsider in a small town during the 80s and 90s, Mïka faced the challenges of navigating his mixed-race identity (Filipino and French Canadian) and being a member of the LGBTQ2+ community in a social context that was less accepting of diversity. During those formative years, Mïka found solace and strength through the transformative realms of music, theatre, comic books, and films. These immersive worlds offered narratives of resilience and inspiration that motivated him to overcome adversity and embrace his unique identity.

It's from this deeply personal journey that ART & ALCHEMY® was born—a sanctuary where individuals, especially those who feel misunderstood, can discover their voice and summon inner strength through the enchantment of unique essences.

"I consistently find myself recounting variations of the same tale: one of a character who, despite facing misunderstanding and marginalization, transcends these obstacles to emerge as a formidable and empowered individual. I identify with those characters, and I perceive that strength and potential within everyone." - Mika
