Olivier Pescheux

What Olivier Pescheux likes most about the profession of perfumer is not knowing in the morning what he will be doing the rest of the day. “My tests are an endless source of surprises,” he enthuses. Although this lover of patchouli, which he finds “magical”, and of citrus fragrances such as bergamot and lemon, “so lively and pleasant”, leaves space for the unexpected in his creative process, he is no less perfectionist for all that.

“If I worked alone, I would be capable of changing the same perfume over and over again,” he points out. His inspiration comes mostly from music or painting, artistic fields that spark emotion.

He creates fragrances that are designed with precision, clarity and intelligibility. His dream as a perfumer is to bottle the smell of Paris pavements after the rain.
