“Chef, by trade, since 1993. My independent perfumery study began in 2007 when I tried (and failed miserably) to produce a fragrance with some essential oils purchased from the local health foods store. It immediately became an obsession which led me to ten years of researching and studying perfumery principles, history, and aroma chemicals.
I began creating fragrances out of pure fascination. The more I learned and practiced the more I began to discover recognizable accords and effects in many of my favorite fragrances. It became addictive!
I create fragrances according to “sketches” and note structures that appeal to me. I can’t say I’ve made anything groundbreaking; I just make what I enjoy. I hope you too will enjoy my perfumes”.
