THE ART OF DISCERNING SCENTS
Create your own scent by pairing it to your personality traits.
In Grasse, Alpes Maritimes, France the birthplace of perfume, flowers like the centafolia, a rose with hundred petals and unmatched smell, have been cultivated for four millennia for the sole use of making the base for the creation of perfumes.
The average human can recognize around 2000 to 4000 smells, a perfume maker 10,000. From the flower it would take 200 lbs of petals to make only 600 gr of absolut, after a distillation process, the final agent is used to make the perfume. Some perfumes require around 200 to 300 types of essence.
Today, most perfumes are manufactured synthetically. Fragonard, the French perfumer still manufactures using traditional methods. They also have a wonderful perfumer apprentice workshop at their headquarter in Grasse and Paris.
