    Default Maurice Roucel Interview (in French)

    For the francophones here:

    http://www.auparfum.com/?Maurice-Rou...reation-est-un

    Quite an interesting interview with M. Roucel. in which he discusses:

    - His scientific background and how it allowed him to enter the world of perfumery,
    - The first perfumes he wore (Eau Sauvage at 15, followed by Old Spice)
    - His experiences at Chanel (... these old, serious guys with tester strips under their noses...)
    - The creative process, from initial brief to final product.
    - His experiences working with Loren and Khoury from Estee Lauder in the US (... faced with your work, they have two reactions "I like it" or "I don't like it". In France at least, as in Spain and in Italy, ... [there is] no doubt more of an olfactory culture...)
    - His method of working (... It's a bit like a game of tennis, or rather, love: You need to have a partner. The creative act is a sharing, and solitary pleasures don't interest me)
    - How Musc Ravageur and Iris Silver Mist came to be
    - His first meeting with F. Malle
    - What he personally wears ( I wear the perfumes I'm working on.... also Farenheit, Pour Monsieur, Habit Rouge...)
    - How, after having a moustache for 20 years, he shaved it off when he arrived in New York (...I went to the bathroom, scissors in hand, and I hesitated a good half-hour before deciding to cut the moustache, which was quite big...)

    A great perfumer who, so it seems, has great taste also.
