Our Story


Behind the BODYGUARD brand we have a team of five founders who bring together over 30 years expertise in fine fragrance, product innovation and manufacturing.

Our chairwomen are Celia Nicolosi and Stephanie Venier Dargent, friends and business partners for over 15 years. Both women are highly respected in the manufacturing of fine fragrance and are skilled in the traditional Perfumery techniques, passed down through generations.
Celia & Stephanie spent many years travelling the world on business and experienced first hand a gap in the market for high quality skin protection products that were efficient yet also a pleasure to use. Through an extensive period of research and development Celia and Stephanie set about launching two revolutionary new products.
First came their very own manufacturing L'Atelier called Laboratorie Astelia located in the heart of Provence.
From here they created their first collection of BODYGUARD Fragranced Hand Sanitisers soon followed by the revolutionary BODYGUARD Fragranced Anti- Mosquito Collection 
“Our heritage and all our expertise comes from creating fine fragrances in Provence, France.  BODYGUARD is manufactured in our very own L'Atelier in Manosque, Provence. This allows us to guarantee the quality standards  of our product.”
