Perfumer & Flavorist Magazine May Issue : Perfumers, Niche and Jean Carles

The May issue of Perfumer & Flavorist Magazine is filled with very interesting articles. A preview of the events taking place at the World Perfumery Congress, which takes place on June 5-9, 2007 is offered on page 14. Nobi Shioya, the founder of niche house S-Perfume and Made by Blog is interviewed in the article Sculpting Scent on page 18. On working with perfumers he says, “I’m so used to those types of people [musicians, artists and designers]… but when I first met perfumers like Alberto Morillas or Thierry Wasser–from the outside they were … very classical [European] types; but once I started to speak with them, their personalities were more striking than any other artists that I knew.”

In the piece Exposing the Perfumer (page 38), Michelle Krell Kydd is exploring what it means to be a perfumer in the 21st century, especially given the advent of the internet technology. She interviews senior perfumer Carlos Benaim of International Flavors & Fragrances, Jean-Pierre Subrenat of the World Perfumery Congress, Jean Guichard of Givaudan’s perfumer school, and Frédéric Malle of Editions de Parfums, among others. For a perfume lover who enjoys delving deep into the topic, the article includes two updated charts of the famous Jean Carles method, which is used to study the aroma-materials.

  • Laila Carmine: Thanks for your lovely blog. I am perfume obsessed despite warnings of the carcinogens in perfumes.

    Do you know anything about verbena? IS it the same smell as bergamot?

    Can i wear a pure verbena essential oil on my skin if i mix it with oil? April 26, 2007 at 11:42pm Reply

  • laila carmine: Also, please what happened to Lucky number 6 – is it discontinued? Did you like it? April 26, 2007 at 11:45pm Reply

  • BoisdeJasmin: Laila, welcome! I must say that one is much more likely to get cancer being in the sun, eating processed food loaded with preservatives and breathing in polluted air than by wearing perfume, but the cancer scare targets shift alltime–from cellphones to perfumes, so I would take it all with a grain of salt.

    Verbena is very sensitizing, and I simply cannot recommend using it in any pure form on the skin.

    Lucky number 6 is still around. I have not tried it, so I cannot comment on it. April 28, 2007 at 1:26pm Reply
