Our perfumers

Our collection is produced by a team of 10 perfumers that reveal their talents in a unique collection of unisex fragrances.

Philippe Romano

He grew up in Grasse, born with a father who was a perfumer. Philippe worked at Robert for 20 years and travelled a lot. For the past 17 years, he’s been a senior perfumer at DROM in Paris.

Music inspires him, especially the excessiveness and creativity of the 70’s. Philippe particularly appreciates chypre scents that are articulated around the vetiver, sandalwood and patchouli.

Alexandra Monet

After graduating from ISIPCA, Alexandra integrated the DROM house in Munich first, then she moved to New York and finally in Paris.

Pure musky scents are happiness for her. She appreciates their “clean fresh” side that is extremely reassuring. Alexandra has always loved working with leather notes as they bring a carnal facet to the fragrance.

Corinne Cachen

« Don’t dream your life, live your dream »

After graduating from ISIPCA, Corinne started at Forasynth then Créations Aromatiques. She’s been working for more than 20 years at DROM. With a passion for spicy and vanilla notes, she uses her personal past experiences to give her perfumes life. Patchouli is one of the raw materials she prefers. She says this is a perfume in itself.

Carla Chabert

Even though she was born and raised in Grasse , at first Carla Chabert aimed at becoming a journalist rather than a perfumer.

But then, by some chance, she got to enter the wonderful world of perfumery. Today, she works at Fragrances essentielles; a family business; alongside with her father; a perfumer too. She likes a whole range of raw materials, among which Prunol base, ambroxan, santal, vetiver and bergamot.

Carla Chabert

Philippe Romano was born to be a perfumer. His creations reflect the « excessive yet incredibly creative side of the 70s ». He plays with raw materials, whether woody, smoky, velvety or simply mysterious. His playful creations, 201 and 501, display the traits of the “Bon Parfumeur” « curiosity, intuition and determination ».

Through musky and pure compositions, Alexandra Monet creates fragrances that are as reassuring as they are sensual. Inside its soft bubble, perfume is carnal and changing, much like our fragrance 101. Monet likes leathery notes, and even more, patchouli. Creating perfumes is like a game to her and Bon Parfumeur knows how to let her express both freedom and technicity.

Corinne Cachen creates scents that are bursting with life. She’s inspired by the burning beauty of spices, by the energy of citrus and by the comfort brought by soft notes. Her perfumes come to life as she summons her greatest muse, mother Nature, the source of endless treasures, a symbol of strength and peacefulness. 203, 402, 901… Iconic fragrances with strong personalities.

For Carla Chabert, it’s always been a family affair. Despite following her father’s trade, Chabert’s work is renewing tradition. She adds touches of originality to each of her creations. Her perfumes become a mirror of her sunny personality and when she created our 003, she naturally added citrus and scents of the summer to it.

Sidonie lancesseur

After studying at ISIPCA, Sidonie integrated the Robertet composition house in 2004. Michel Almairac transformed his taste for short formulas. She advocates elegance and natural authenticity in her creations.

For her, each raw material must find its place and perfumes are used to materialize emotions and memories. The raw materials she particularly prefers are vetiver, patchouli and rose.

Serge de Oliveira

"At first, a desire to work around the Cashmeran, which I like for its warm, musky and aromatic woody facets, combined with a tonkin musk effect.

It's a fragrance I've been working on for years without a precise brief. It was made for this project. It's a comfortable note in which you can snuggle up and catch yourself dreaming."

Jacques Chabert

Born in Grasse, in the south of France, he progressively grew something of a passion for perfumery. This famous French perfumer worked for prestigious houses such as Robertet, Chanel, Naarden (now called Givaudan) or Firmenich. He is the one who created Cristalle by Chanel and Samsara by Guerlain.

His favorite raw material to work with is vetiver. If he were to recall one single olfactory memory from his youth, it would be the times where he’d go and pick up jasmine in the fields of Grasse.  

To him, a “Bon Parfumeur” is someone who has the ability to inspire.

Benoit Lapouza

« Work less, sail more »

All started at Takasago where Pierre Bourdon learned the job of a perfumer. Benoist has been working for Quest and Fragrances Ressources before joining Drom in 2014.

Passionate about regatta, sailing and diving; ocean is a big source of inspiration to him. Freshness and sensuality are two characteristics he likes to work on.

Sidonie Lancesseur favors short compositions, made out of raw materials that have been chosen with time and care. Yet the perfumes she creates for us are extremely rich. While they appear natural and simple, they are actually bold and appeal to powerful emotions. Her creations embody modernity and creative freedom, much like in 302, where she lets spices speak up.

After studying at ISIPCA, Sidonie integrated the Robertet composition house in 2004. Michel Almairac transformed his taste for short formulas. She advocates elegance and natural authenticity in her creations.

Atypical. Generous. Passionate. When he creates a perfume, Serge De Oliveira can’t help but add his own « signature » to it. And we love that. The fragrances he creates combine mystery, audacity and originality and become immediately addictive (like the fragrance 903). To him, a Bon Parfumeur is someone who knows how to add a unique signature to any of the works that come from his nose. 100% bold.

Well-known perfumer Jacques Chabert has worked for the most prestigious perfume houses: Robertet, Chanel (he created Cristalle), Naarden (now Givaudan), and Guerlain (he also created Samsara). He created 802 for us, a floral fragrance that reminds him of picking flowers in the fields when he was a child. A well-balanced and original unisex perfume, 802 is a master perfume that speaks to Chabert’s great experience.

According to Benoit Lapouza, a Bon Parfumeur should master the art of making something original yet wearable. It’s no wonder then, that he created our fragrance 701, with its audacious touches of eucalyptus and hemp. He likes woody and flowery scents – using anything natural to create freshness and sensuality. He has the ability to shape and reinvent each scent to meet our noses‘ greatest pleasure.

Nathalie Koobus

She has grown up in and around Grasse. The perfume universe quickly became familiar to her. After starting a career in research and development in Grasse, she became a perfumer at Fragrances Essentielles.  

She prefers amber woody notes, with a special loving for sandalwood.

Karine Dubreuil

Nathalie Koobus

Both chic and sleek, the perfumes that Nathalie Koobus creates for Bon Parfumeur have a very particular atmosphere. Always creative, her compositions favor woody notes - perhaps because she has a thing for Sandalwood. Nathalie gets inspiration from everything that surrounds her. Be it interesting culinary dishes, a chance meeting or the secrets of nature… Much like the Bon Parfumeur, she is « curious about everything and willing to learn from anything ».

Karine Dubreuil

For Bon Parfumeur, Karine Dubreuil has created several fragrances that include comforting scents. Her fragrances send us back to lovely memories, like the scent of a baby’s skin (001), or of a beach paradise (103). Dubreuil creatively marries touches of jasmine, orange blossom, citrus, mimosa, rose and produces spontaneity. To her, « Being a Bon Parfumeur is never losing one’s inner child, and keeping hold of one’s spontaneity and creativity ».

After a childhood in Grasse and having integrated the school of Roure (Givaudan today), Karine Dubreuil – Sereni created iconic perfumes such as Eclat d’Arpège from Lanvin. She became one of our “noses” at Bon Parfumeur.

“To me, Creativity is the opening we have on the world.”

“Being Bon Parfumeur, to me, means two things: keeping your child soul, your spontaneity and creativity, but also making the perfume more accessible”
