    Default Which perfumer would you like to get acquainted with?

    Me - Francis Kurkdjian
    He is one of the most interesting parfumeurs.
    Howevere I didn't like his newest Ungaro scent for women.
    (But it's not his fault. It's Ungaro concept)

    Olivia Giacobetti -- for reasons that are not perfume related.

    Lorenzo Villoresi -- because he is interesting and he seems to be a very personable guy.

    Meh, If I was 15 years older

    Me personally - JCE and Dominique Ropion

    JCE - Minimalistic Perfection, what I admire.

    Ropion - Contrasts and paradoxes, just the right amount of drama, fragrances that do come alive

    I would also choose Francis Kurkdjian.

    He is somewhat an intriguing character, and being the nose behind Narciso Rodriguez For Her, and Dior's Eau Noire, I think I could talk with him for an eternity.

    yes, yes just these two scent say everything about him

    I am also impressed of the fact that being 25 in 1995 he created Le Male.
    Today I am wearing Fleur du Male. Beautiful scent.

    Default Re: Which perfumer would you like to get acquainted with?

    I have 11 scents in my collection made by Jacques Cavallier (alone or with Alberto Morillas): Opium pour Homme, M7, Rive Gauche, Aquaman Rochas, Ultraviolet Men, L'eau d'Issey, L'eau bleue d'Issey, Essenza di Zegna, (my favourite) Bvlgari pour Homme, Bvlgari Aqva and Sander for Men and it's quite obvious that I'm a huge admirer of his work.
    I have to mention one female perfumer - Annick Menardo. I just love her sweet creations (Jaipur, Xeryus Rouge, Bvlgari Black, Body Kouros, Visit, Lolita Lempicka au Masculine, Boss Bottled...).

    Ahhhh! More like 25 years older for me, she's just 5 years older than my mom o.O, damn, she looks young! Olivia Giacobetti was born on April 9, 1966 in Boulogne, France. You can have her Jack!

    Lorenzo Villoresi. I think if I met him, I'd stumble all over myself.

    Smile Re: Which perfumer would you like to get acquainted with?

    Easy, Lorenzo Villoresi. He seems to be very personable and intelligent man, with similar interests with me, like philosophy and history. It doesn't hurt that the man is one of my absolute favourite perfumers.

    As Kurkdjian seems to be completely booked: the men behind Voleur de Roses and L'Homme Sage! I just imagine that they might have interesting personalities irrespective of age or looks. My poor French might be a real handicap, though! If it weren't the language, I would love to meet Villoresi, of course! I have him on DVD and a hundred questions in addition to those he already answered there. To attend one of those events he is organizing during the annual fashion weeks in Firenze would already be something.

    Impossible to realize, I know, but actually Ernest Beaux. I've always admired the abstract yet classic costruction of his timeless gems: for that time he was all about pure tradition and dare in a flawless balance.

    Olivia for me too... but for the reasons that are perfume related (I love her Lubin Idole)! Although she is a nice looking lady!

    There are quite a few fragrances by her that I haven't tried yet - but the five I have so far are wonderful!

    Someone from this community: Ayala. Alas I haven't had the chance to try any of her creations, but from her comments I judge she must be a very interesting person.
