Cool b/g info about some perfumers
I just found these little blurbs about the perfumers behind the Six Scents Series 1 fragrances. Just thought I'd share with you all:
Six Scents No. 1: Urban Tropicalia by Alexandre Herchcovitch & Joachim Correll
Ingredients: Erogenous Cedar wood - Amber Fond, Lemon, Cassis De Bourgeouns, Lime, Green Apple, Apricot, Jasmine, Tagete, Freesia, Cinnamon, Musk
Joachim has been a perfumer for 24 years. He was born in Holzminden, Germany, and now lives in São Paulo Brazil. Very early he was fascinated about chemistry and scents. After high school, he became a perfumer trainee. During his career he worked and lived at different places in the world. Joachim loves to work in different fragrance areas, like fine fragrances, personal care and home care. His inspirations come from different sides, influenced by cultures and the diversity of art-forms. Correll's portfolio includes scents for Avon, Natura, O Boticário, and Victoria's Secret amongst others.
Six Scents No. 2: Wicken 3000 by Bernhard Willhelm & Lucas Sieuzac
Ingredients: Sea Breeze Accord, Bergamot, Water Jasmine, Sheer Musk
Lucas decided to become a perfumer at the age of 18, when he realized the best accomplishment one could have in life is to create beauty through the senses. Perfumery allowed him to pursue this dream; therefore he joined Florasynth in 1994 and then Créations Aromatiques in 1998. Artist in many ways, his creative process is to re-write the classic approach of raw materials blending them with high tech materials: combining academic with avant-garde styles. His signature is to highlight the duality of his composition's materials, attracting and responding to each other in the process. Sieuzac's portfolio includes Emporio Armani 'Night', Jil Sander 'Jil Sander Style Summer', Givenchy 'Lovely Prism', Amouage Reflection Man and Jubilation 25, and Azzaro Now amongst others.
Six Scents No. 3: The Spirit of the Woods by Cosmic Wonder Light Source & Philippe Paparella-Paris
Ingredients: Green Grass, Fig Leaves, Cypress, Elemi, Coriander, Cedar wood, Vetiver, Hinoki, White Amber
A native from the South of France, Philippe studied sciences in Montpellier, France and specialized in perfumery at the ISIPCA school in Versailles, France. He started working for Mane as an intern, and then followed their Perfumer Training Program after a couple of years. After living in various places in Asia, Philippe joined Symrise in May 2008. He especially loves working with woody, ambery and musky notes for their sensual aspects. Furthermore from his experience in Southeast Asia, he likes to work with exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple. He is always thrilled by the transformation of a written formula into an actual fragrance, especially when it turns out to be beautiful and impressive.
Six Scents No. 4: Diagonal by Gareth Pugh & Emilie Copperman
Ingredients: Dill, Black Pepper, Nutmeg, Palissander, Black Tea, Amyris, White Amber, Musk
Because of her love for lowers, Emilie discovered her passion for fragrance when she was 14 years old. She realized she wanted to live in a harmonious and beautifully scented universe, and therefore studied organic chemistry and attended the International Institute of Perfumes, Cosmetics & Aromas in Versailles, France. For Emilie, being a perfumer is more than a vocation, she is totally committed to the realm of fragrance and transmits her creativity through her creations. Her talent for perfumery lies in her playful, unconventional nature, her sense of exploration and her bold, fearless approach to experiment with something new, twisting masculine codes with feminine codes with her fragrances. Emilie relies on her feminine intuition, the power of her dreams, her determination and sense of realism to inspire her fragrances. Copperman's portfolio includes scents for numerous scents for Burberry, Givenchy, Christian Dior, Christian Lacroix, Jil Sander, Kate Moss, and Sonia Rykiel, amongst others.
Six Scents No. 5: Illicit Sex by Jeremy Scott & Philippe Roques
Ingredients: Bergamot, Aldehydic, Pepper, Nutmeg, Rose, Benzoin, Olibanum, Cedarwood, Musk
Philippe Roques graduated as a pharmacist before joining L'OREAL as a fragrance analyst. In 2000, he then naturally joined a fragrance company: Symrise. For Philippe, as a virtuoso pianist in classical and contemporary music, creating fragrances is playing with simple chords as well as interpreting them in a "theme and variations" way. He particularly enjoys oriental notes for men and women and loves creating woody notes. Born in France with British roots, he has maintained very strong cross-Channel links. This enables him to have a deep understanding of both cultures and an appetite for traveling. Philippe enjoys urban environments and their energy. He moved to Symrise's NYC Creative studio in 2007. Roques' portfolio includes scents for Burberry, Byblos, Enrico Coveri, Natura, and Oriflame, amongst others.
Six Scents No. 6: Teen Spirit by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi & Mark Buxton
Ingredients: Hazelnut Leaf, Rhubarb, Bergamot, Seashore Accord, Red Pepper Berry, Rose, Magnolia, Violet wood, Sandalwood, Musk
Mark began his perfumery studies at the Haarman & Reimer School in Holzminden, Germany. Once he graduated, he joined H&R in 1985 and then Créations Aromatiques in Paris and continued his career as an accomplished perfumer. To Mark, simplicity is the ultimate luxury. This holds true with his approach to life and it also embodies the way he composes a fragrance. He keeps his mind open, always willing to absorb new ideas. Buxton's portfolio includes scents for Burberry, Biotherm, Cartier, Comme des Garçons, Salvador Dali, Givenchy, Jil Sander, and Versace.
