Doris Brugger spent over a decade in the glamorous 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. Followed by the Parfum Oil Siddhartha.
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.
Two more years of extensive research and development, Doris is launching a new line of highly sophisticated body & massage oils. The line – named Dorissima d1 – d7 body & massage oil – consists in seven absolutely natural body & massage oils in seven colours, referring to the seven Chakra colours:
|d1: Red||Power, stamina and assertiveness|
|d2: Orange||Joy of living, vitality and enthusiasm|
|d3: Yellow||Spontaneity, empathy and self-confidence|
|d4: Green||Tolerance, creativity and self-esteem|
|d5: Blue||Communicative powers, concentration and rational thinking|
|d6: Indigo||Intuition and imagination|
|d7: Purple||Understanding of myself and forward thinking|
The products are all made of natural oils like Jojoba oil, essential oils like grapefruit, lemon, vanilla, pautchouli, neroli, rose, tangerine, ylang-ylang, etc., and natural colours – 100 % nature.
According to the d1 – d7 body & massage oils there will be d1 – d7 beauty packs, which will be launched at the end of March 2006. The line is completed by the d1 – d7 natural teas, based on natural herbs, fruits and white tea.
This line is perfect for high class spas and the use at home for sophisticated personalities.
The temporary highlight of DORISSIMA is 2005 the development of the new luxury line: DORISSIMA SIDDHARTHA SPA LINE. A complete, most containing luxury care line, with natural essentials, which Doris experienced and learnt in India.

She included those wonderful alpine essentials in the consisting oils and it came into being a rank of beautifully and brilliant oils:

|All DORISSIMA||products reflect Doris view of life:|
|Felinity/Sensuality:||The natural seductiveness and sensuality that is inherent to every woman (and man) should be emphasized naturally|
|Agelessness:||The philosophy of life is not aimed at a certain age group and knows no age limit|
|Open-Mindedness:||Be open and interested in everything that is new and make this the essence of your own style|
|Patristic Luxury:||Luxury is not “gold and glamour” – it is having the time to indulge in exclusive materials, to withdraw from the flood of stimuli in everyday life and to give in to enjoyable, basic sensuality|
|New Way of Life:||Return to the original, inherent strength which is your very own and the strongest oasis of tranquillity|
|Independence:||Go your way; be determined without being egoistic or egocentric|
|Flexibility:||Be flexible without betraying your principles but go your way|
“My vision for DORISSIMA has been to inspire others to take control of their own wellbeing and to encourage them to make holistic rituals with pure and natural products part of their everyday regime. To help them rediscover what it?s like to feel relaxed, stress-free, and simply themselves once again – this is what I call pure and true luxury.”
