Creating your own perfume: a misguided idea?
If you can’t imagine leaving the house without a few spritzes of your favorite scent, making your own perfume can be tempting. Rather than reinventing yourself as a chemist’s apprentice and creating scents that won’t necessarily meet with unanimous approval, trust the perfumery professionals who use their incredible skills to make perfumes that are truly exceptional.
The perfumer: unique expertise
It takes 10 years to become a perfumer. In addition to the technical knowledge which is acquired during their cosmetology studies, perfumers are real magicians. Over the years, the perfumer learns to identify and memorize more than 1,500 raw materials used to create perfumes. Like a conductor, he or she combines notes to create unique and addictive scents.
Every perfumer has his or her own favorite fragrances and showcases his or her talent when developing a new fragrance.
