Episode #8: The Art of Perfumery with Master Perfumer Christophe Laudamiel [Part II]
In Part 2 of 2, I talk with Master Perfumer Christophe Laudamiel this time about the Art of Perfumery.
Whether you're interested in a career in Perfumery, or simply interested in learning about the art form, this episode is packed with information and insights on all things creative.
We discuss why Perfumery is truly an Art and what that means exactly.
Christophe shares what options are available to becoming a Perfumer, but more importantly, what you can do everyday to train and open your nose... and your brain.
He shares why he created the Perfumery Code of Ethics and what message he’s hoping to send.
We discuss what goes into creating a perfume, incl. Christophe’s disdain for the word “brief.”
He explains what he believes makes a good perfume and when he knows he’s made an impact.
He also talks about being a scent artist and creating scent sculptures, including why he believes this is the purest form of artistic expression.
Don’t forget to listen all the way to the end to learn a more personal side of Christophe, including what smell he likes most right now, his favorite scent memories, and what 5 smells describe him best.
