Home Country: Thailand

Employment: Perfumer and Founder of Parfums Dusita perfume house. She is the President of the company and the only in-house Perfumer.
Pissara Umavijani was born in Bangkok, Thailand. She is from an old Siamese house that is very traditional. She lived with her grandma,aunts and parents. Her dad, Montri Umavijani,was a poet from Thailand. He wrote contemporary poems about humanity in the postmodern world. Her mom, Chutatip, is a philosophy professor.
Growing up, Pissara was given the freedom to choose what she wanted to do with her life. Her parents taught her to follow her heart. The place she lived with nature. They had tropical fruits like mangos and coconuts. They also had a lotus pond and a grove. She loved playing with grasses and leaves of fruit trees growing.
She was surrounded by people who loved wearing fragrances. Her mother wore Shalimar and Mitsuko while her father wore fidji by Guy La Roche and Bergamot perfumes. Her maternal grandmother wore Lavande by Guerlain and fill eau de cologne while her paternal grandmother wore tiger balm. Growing up she learnt to identify members of her family by their different scents, therefore she was introduced to the perfume world at an early age.
EDUCATION AND CAREER
Pissara joined Chulalongkorn university where she studied communication and social psychology. She later graduated with honors. She then furthered her studies and got her master's degree in the same university. She participated in different beauty pageants and she won the Miss congeniality title. She was later discovered by someone from the movie industry and ended up acting in four Thailand movies.
She later met a friend who shared the same perfume interest with her, more so the vintage ones. They joined hands together and studied the composition of various perfumes. They disassembled perfumes to try and discover the raw materials that make it up. They studied perfumes like; Fracas 1958, Joy 1928, Narcisse Noir 1911. They took time investigating and reading different books and experimenting with different raw materials. They learnt how different flowers smell like. They developed a nose for raw materials and gradually learnt how to mix them.
After her father's death, she went to Paris and fell in love with the place. After she went to Bangkok,she decided to do something to honor her father's memory. One day while she was experimenting with various raw materials, she came up with a fragrance called Issara with her friends. Issara which meant freedom just like her name which meant freedom in Thai.
She later returned to Paris,where she enrolled in EDMOD to study design as it was one of the schools that accepted foreign students. She continued pursuing her passion in making perfumes and was lucky to meet Chavalier. He convinced her that she could make a brand out of her fragrances. She happily took the offer and went ahead to work on different other fragrances. And that is how Parfums Dusita brand was created.
Her fragrances have a natural scent since she tries as much as possible to avoid using synthetic materials. She keeps saying "I believe as humans all need to stay connected to nature,these are our roots"
