My business trips are not only to visit customer: I also source my own ingredients all over the world, I love to get lost in the research of unique quality ingredients

I was meant to become a perfumer, as I was literally born inside the industry. Indeed, the story of my family business goes back to nearly one century: my grandfather established the company back in 1925; later on, my father resumed and expanded the work of the company from 1975 onwards.I was trained, of course, in the in-house lab, surrounded not only by the best possible advisor – my father! – but also by a brilliant team of perfumers.

When I’m not travelling across the world, which is quite often, I’m putting my nose into work in order to create new fragrances, new smells and new sensations. Frequently I land into a new city, reach the hotel and get a parcel full of sample to be evaluated.I work to send a feedback and wait till my next destination to get again a new set of samples with all the modifications on the projects I’m working on.

My deep knowledge of high-quality natural materials, such as oud, the current “black gold” of the perfume industry, was the first object of discussion with Alessandro and Riccardo: thanks to the common passion for naturals, we immediately established a good rapport with each other.Later on, different perfumes and projects made our careers happily cross again, as we shared a creative and artistic approach to the industry.

At the beginning of 2016, Alessandro, Riccardo and I definitely joined forces in the Mandala project, a myrrh and incense perfume creation, which is a truly spiritual journey through the sense of smell.

All or nothing… it was always obvious to me that I would one day become a perfumer. Passion – although the word is not quite strong enough – had always been there, but it was perfume more than anything else that I was fascinated by. https://www.hookupdate.net/farmers-dating As vital to me as the air that brings them to life. My itinerary includes a Chemistry degree before enrolling to ISIPCA to obtain a Master’s degree in the famous school in Versailles, and several internships in perfume composition.

I am a Perfumer in my own rights since 2016. Never giving up, a total believe in my vocation, I am a defender of free and daring perfumery, not afraid of dark and mysterious materials, always in search of their true power. I build a specific experience in Asian markets, and to me the world is the horizon and painting is an endless source of inspiration. To me, materials come together in a fragrance like on a canvas, to arouse emotions and feelings, faithful to a style that prefers achieving the beautiful than pursuing perfection.

The first time we met, I did not know what they wanted and I made them smell proactively a scent around rose, which is one of my favorite raw materials. I was totally surprised and impressed, when – minutes later – I found out that they had in mind the idea to create a rose, so we directly aligned on that for our project.

However, the idea they had of that rose was very different from the usual way I like to work it. I used to make white transparent rose, dewy and fresh, but they wanted a more dense and animalic rose, with a velvet touch, where also the thorns were essential. We even talked about the image of a dried rose, almost decadent. This is also something I really liked the first time we met. The way we talked about materials, touch and synesthetic feeling that allowed us to understand on every detail of our creation.
