    Default Pictures of Perfumers

    Just thought it'd be fun to have a thread of photos of our favourite perfumers, see what they look like. Hmm, what kind of conjecture can we hallucinate about them based on their appearance?


    Serge Lutens

    Not a perfumer himself, but directs Sheldrake (below) as to what he wants for his line, which is my favourite.

    Christopher Sheldrake (left)

    Perfumer of all the Lutens fragrances, also Femininité du Bois, and if I'm not mistaken he's been hired by Dior as well.

    Jean Claude Ellena

    Creations include Terre, the Hermessence line, Jardin en Meditérranée, Jardin sur le Nil for Hermes, the Thé Vert/Rouge/Blanc series for Bvlgari.


    Jean Paul and Jacques Guerlain

    Vetiver, Shalimar, Samsara, and many many other heavenly classics.

    Pépé LePew

    Creator of Kouros, Muscs Koublai Khan and many, many others (help me out with these if you know of any!)

    Hey, I enjoyed your Guerlain site by the way! Just listened to the NPR interview.

    He does look Freudian!

    Whoah - Ms. Giacobetti aside, I hope the rest of those guys smell better than they look! Geekorama!

    I didn't realize Super Mario was a perfumer!

    Serge looks a bit naughty and somewhat witty-cheeky on that first picture...Olivia is a beautiful woman...

    Sheldrake was hired not by Dior but by Chanel. The guy in the picture with Sheldrake is Chanel nose, Jacques Polge.

    P.S. Where did you get such a large image of Olivia Giacobetti, and can you find a similarly large image of one of my two, three favorite noses, Annick Menardo?

    I know he 's got this tall germanic geeky look but maybe it 's just a bad picture. I 'm so in love with Lipstick Rose!

    I beg to differ! Querelle and Corps et Ames are glorious. Bois de Copaiba isn't really my style, but it smells positively ambrosial on my boyfriend.

    I was surprised to see that P.G. is a young hottie, there's a maturity to his compositions that led me to expect someone less youthful behind them.

    Again, as someone noted, a lot has to do with personal taste and skin chemistry. Maybe not so much skin chemistry, as they worked well with my skin, but they just lacked originality (we've all smelt a chocolate scent before), a bit dull or boring and just plain old did nothing for me. But again, this is all in my opinion. I just think there's other better niche perfume houses out there.

    I beg to differ too .... enough said if he toppled Serge from the throne he was sitting on in my heart. But you're right...it's all about personal taste. However, I wouldn't want to hijack this thread which is about perfumer's pictures...should we start a new thread on PG? It's not much talke about.

    Thanks! The only ones I've tried among those are Tea for Two and Phylosykos, and those are amazing 5 star scents for sure.

    Hey, is she "L'Artisan" or is "L'Artisan" just a house with many perfumers? I always assumed for some reason that it was one guy.

    No L'Artisan is just the name of the line - they employ many noses. Jean Claude Ellena, Karine Vinchon, Bertrand Duchaufour, Anne Flipo, Michel Almairac and many more...

    Takes away some of the romance of the idea of *the* artisan... Oh well, still hope to get some of that Tea for Two - how amazing is the devellopment of that one? It totally comes alive in three dimensions, slowly over time, from a perfume smell to a 3 dimensional "vision"! So what if the vision is a wet tea bag? It's still so damned cool!
