    What this sounds like, is taking the house nose's creations and either making several copies of it, or doing several small modifications in a series, to take the tedious work off the shoulders of the nose. Not a bad way to get a foot in the door, I wouldn't think.

    I'm sure they require extensive industry experience... Getting a start in this industry is often done at the intern level. You usually work mostly on very uninteresting projects like industrial fragrances etc... from there you can, with referrals move up the fragrance food chain, as your nose's reputation grows. It is best to start young as this can take decades... it's a competitive business. Very few noses work at the level of designing "skin wearing perfumes." It's like being in the film or TV business.. most successful working actors do small character work, not leading roles.

    This isn't a job for a nose but a job working with noses. What it entails is taking the recipe that noses create and scaling it up to small-scale and/or large scale industrial batching.

    I understand that, but I'm certain that if they are a fragrance company of any standing that they will require a great deal of experience for this position.
