"I asked the Master Perfumers to sign the Suskind book for me.One of them wrote: perfume is a dream, it is the most beautiful lie.."
When a child, Vincent's uncle had plans for him to join a pharmaceutical laboratory. What his family didn't know is that by age 15, Vincent's fate was already revealed to him through the book, Perfume by Patrick Suskind. In the name of his conviction, a natural chain of events unfolded. Vincent joined a world-renowned perfume house in 1996 after receiving his PhD in chemistry. Then from a student Perfumer, Vincent graduated to assistant Perfumer; from Paris to San Paulo, Brazil to New York, and finally returned to Paris as a Fine Fragrance Perfumer.
Vincent says that his biggest sources of inspiration is the family vacations spent at the farmhouse owned by his grandparents in Switzerland. He credits the authentic nature of the region and its cooking as influences that he puts to music in a very simple formula writing. A positive attitude and determination seem to already be preparing the rest of the journey for Vincent.
Vincent created "ADORN", "SIDA", and "WOW!" for ORN.
"While perfumers repeat the same gestures over and over, inspiration is ever-changing. The ingredients you think you know by heart can come together in an infinite number of combinations, endlessly opening new perspectives. In the long run, it may well be the pleasure of surprising myself that guides me when I am designing fragrances."
A passion for perfumery was instilled in this young woman from Paris right from childhood, by her mother, who worked for a renown perfume house. The happy hours she spent handling raw ingredients in the perfume lab predestined her for a career in perfumery.
However, it wasn't one she made right away. Amandine did two years of pre-med before realizing that she was made for something else. So she began to pursue a career as a perfumer by studying at ISIPCA, Versailles, completed her traineeship at Grasse, and joined Robertet Paris alongside Michel Almairac in 2001.
Amandine created "WAN" and "MAYA" for ORN.
"I like working from a raw material that has a history..like patchouli, to dress it, to enhance it."
Gentle and yet determined, Marie Salamagne believes in her lucky star. Passionate about dance since the age of 4, she could not imagine living without it. Ever since the very first day she entered the ISIPCA school to become a Perfumer, she has not had the slightest doubt about her career choice.
Born in Paris in 1977, young Marie had an awareness and fascination for odors.. of attics, bread, earth, putty.. It is only later that she found out the meaning of this attraction. Being born into a family of doctors, she started studying child psychiatry after passing her baccalaureate but quickly realized that her destiny was elsewhere. Her lucky star revealed the existence of the ISIPCA school in Versailles, where she entered after obtaining a degree in chemistry. She quickly found herself formulating at Charabot, first in a parallel work/study based program and after, as a Junior Perfumer, before graduation. Then she leaped at the opportunity to join a global perfume company and passed all requirements to be a student Perfumer in Geneva. Fast in flight, by 2003, Marie found herself in Princeton, New Jersey, where she created for Body Care. After spending 4 months in New York where she started working in Fine Fragrance, she was nominated to join Paris team of Perfumers in January 2005.. all before the age of 30.
In her creations as well as in her life, Marie moves forward confidently and always keeps an eye on her lucky star.
Marie created "BRIDE" for ORN.
"I try to blend fragrances with the brand values - it is a way of being, of creating with my soul and with my mind, as well as my nose."
Nathalie Lorson has always been guided by an open mind and a search for harmony. She prefers the pleasure of sharing and teamwork to achieving individual satisfaction. She is thrilled at the idea of 'touching another' with her creations.
Nathalie grew up in Grasse, where her father was a chemist at Roure. Smelling, for her, was child's play. After passing the baccalaureate, she chose to enter the perfumery school at Roure "to learn the real profession of fragrance creation and to gain an in depth knowledge of the raw materials". "In 1980," she recalls, "very few women entered the perfumery field."
Upon completion of her training, she was satisfied that she had acquired a base for her art: a technical know-how with a vision of the market. Then she joined a global perfume company where she created her first Fine Fragrance for a big perfume brand.
Nathalie describes her olfactive style as harmonious and generous. It is evident in her choice of raw materials and reveals itself in the writing of her formulas.. round, smooth and sensual. What motivates Nathalie? Certainly, her travels to Japan where she worked with local Perfumers to complete a creation of a world-class Japanese perfume brand. Another, is her passion for research and personal fulfillment: molecules, accords, new olfactive territories.. She dreams of everything that has not yet been discovered.
Nathalie created "GROOM" for ORN.
In 2015, Nathalie was named "Perfumer of the year" in both Italy and France.
