    Default How difficult is it to create and produce a fragrance?

    I always wondered how the heck the fragrances are made. What goes on in the creative background? How it is done;trial and error? IOW given all the necessary ingredients and supplies - how does a perfumer go about creating a decent scent, let alone a classic. I would think many a time a fragrance is created, then like editing a good book - the creator decides to tweak the formula, adding and subtracting to evolve the composition. But you really don't see that happening. Once it is released, the composition stay the same - with the exception of flankers.

    I agree that for us, fragrance 'consumers' it's hard to picture this process, even if you're given all the ingredients you need. The fragrance is the result of knowledge, talent, imagination and experience accumulated along years of hard work.

    Take poetry for example, how does the author create such a captivating alluring combination of words that evoke so many emotions?

    And to answer your question, take a look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume.

    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Frankly, more than anything else, most fragrances are the result of market research.
