Doris Brugger spent over a decade in the glamourous fashion world working as the PR-Responsible for the German market with her close friend and mentor, the late Gianni Versace, who named her “Dorissima”. Following his untimely death, she left her duties in Germany and found herself travelling the world.

As a leading PR-Lady, Doris - like most of her friends and colleagues - suffered from constant stress and the never-ending scenario of too much to do in too little time. Deadlines, working round the clock and travelling were taking their toll and Doris began to feel run down and exhausted, especially after the loss of her friend and mentor.

‘I realised I had to do something to regain my equilibrium beyond simply eating healthily and going to the gym. Travelling around after Gianni´s death, I met a woman in Sri Lanka, who taught met the secrets of using natural, aromatic oils in body products and I was hooked.

So, I began to explore the world of complementary healing, the benefits of massage and took up yoga and meditation. I began to feel absolutely fantastic and realised the relevance of Eastern systems of wellbeing for Western consumers.’

Doris „Dorissima“ Brugger released her first scented body oil “Aphrodite” and an all-natural beauty line in 2002, which lead to a meeting with Italian perfumer Lorenzo Villoresi. Inspired by her meeting with the master perfumer, she returned to Germany and set out to create fragrances based on pure natural ingredients: Dorissima „Goldmund“ and Dorissima „Narziß“.

With specific expertise in Ayurveda, issues of holistic living and inner beauty as well as being an avid practitioner of yoga herself, Doris believes these ancient and natural systems of wellbeing have much to offer in today’s fast paced, stressful society.

Designer Dorissima has 2 perfumes in our fragrance base all launched in 2003. The nose who worked on the fragrances is Doris Brugger.
