Alberto Morillas is the most awarded perfumer in the world, creator of countless cult fragrances including ‘CK One’, ‘Acqua di Gio’, and ‘Kenzo Flower’.
Born in Spain, Alberto spent his youth immersed in the colourful region of Andalusia. He was introduced to the craft of perfumery in 1970, after his studies at the School of Fine Arts in Geneva.
"A perfume formula is like a sentence, and thousands of beautiful ones exist. But like a writer, when a perfumer puts emotion into his work, the result makes your heart skip a beat."
Born in Germany, Frank Voelkl grew up in Paris, where he discovered the art of fragrances. He moved to New York in 1995, where he played a key part in the emergence of cult niche perfume brand ‘Le Labo’, for which he created numerous scents including ‘Santal 33’.
Frank is a true poet, who favours fragrances that are mystical and rich, and creates his scents with a ‘haute-couture’ sense of detail.
“Fragrance and music have a lot in common. We talk about fragrance notes and fragrance accords. You can talk about a theme or a melody within a fragrance.”
Born in Paris, Christophe Raynaud is a passionate, fun, and instinctive creator, with a unique talent for composing loveable and desirable fragrances.
Throughout his career, he created fragrances for a wide range of brands including Guerlain, Alexander McQueen, Paco Rabanne, Thierry Mugler, and Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Christophe lives and breathes music and follows the new generation of music artists with great interest. If he were a song, he would be: “‘You Are Everything’ by Diana Ross and Marvin Gaye.”
“My approach to fragrances is that it should make people want to hug and kiss.”
The son of a French perfumer, Fabrice Pellegrin has grown in Grasse - the French capital of perfumery - surrounded by flowers and scents. Fabrice’s personal style is defined by his uncompromising search for refinement and his mastery of natural ingredients.
Fabrice is known by perfume connoisseurs as one of the three noses behind iconic perfume brand ‘Diptyque’.
"One of my main sources of inspiration for creating fragrances is music: from its soft melodies that evoke an oriental perfume, to electronic music that I associate with aromatic, vibrant notes.”
