    1. Michael Almairac : Versatile, scents of strong charachter. Creator of the most beautiful scent ever, Voleur de Roses.
    2. Maurice Roucel : Extremely creative. Gai Mattiolo Mans is one of my biggest favourites scents ever, but I also love madly Rochas Man.
    3. Shirley Brody : Creator of C&S No.88. Enough said.
    4. Annick Menardo : Charismatic perfumer with many mysterious scents. Body Kouros is my favourite; a strange gourmand with animalic twist.
    5. Christopher Sheldrake : I`m not the biggest fan of Serge Lutens, but Sheldrake has create some damn good fragrances. And most importanly; Miel de Bois, which is one of my "top 10 forever" scents.

    OK. Roucel is creative, no matter his shamessly lazy job with New Haarlem.

    But what I guess I meant to say at the first place, Mr. Roucels works are not perhaps mainly creative, but overall very high quality : After all, all of this mans creations are (that I know of) very well made!

    Jacques Guerlain is my Number One: I call him St.Jacques because no mere mortal could have created that amount of otherwordly beautiful and moving perfumes.

    Germaine Céllier
    Olivia Giacobetti
    Annick Goutal

    Ernest Beaux
    Edmond Roudnitska
    Ernest Daltroff
