Thread: Pierre Bourdon retired?
Pierre Bourdon retired? According to Lucky scent, yes, he did.
He is the Creator of
Christian Dior Dolce Vita
Davidoff Cool Water
Frederic Malle French Lover
Frederic Malle Iris Poudre
Yves Saint Laurent Kouros
Yves Saint Laurent Live Jazz
Perhaps he can now tell us if he is also the nose behind GIT... sorry if I do not believe you GIT fans. I had to say it one last time
Yes, according to Luca, he was the nose behind Green Irish Tweed. The reason it was of higher complexity and depth is because in that iteration, he was given a bigger budget.
I'm a colognosaurus. Rawr!
well, as far as I know from my Moscow friend, Pierre still working for some Russian company named Faberlic. That`s like retirement work at home.
He made a lot of perfumes for them also - with less budget, but still good
I`ve got two colognes by Bourdon for Faberlic (impressive), and I think that he still has around 10 great but never released formulas
Vetiver The Great!!!
This guy is amazing. The 2 malle he has created are gorgeous.
Carnal flower is my fav of the niche, then comes french lover and then bois d iris.
Live jazz is very nice as well.
Current top 10 in no particular order : Malle - Carnal Flower (pre 2008) ; Montale - Black Aoud ; Bond #9 - Silver Factory ; Tauer - L'air du désert marocain ; C&Z - No 88 ; Francis K. - APOM ; Creed - Aventus ; Amouage - Epic ; Profumum - Dulcis In Fundo ; Amouage - Opus V
I posted almost a year ago, about Bourdon's news of retirement, on the Fragrance Industry board here: http://community.basenotes.net/showthread.php?t=202997
Thanks Mike, that thread quite is old and I did not bother to go to the second page of my Bourdon Search. I guess I am the last one to get the 'news'. I did see you thread yesterday though. I was looking for a picture of Jacques Cavallier for the "post the picture of a perfumer" thread. Google returned you avatar as a result. Back then the kid had his head shaved.
