She says that when she was little she was sure everyone smelled the same way she did. So even though she took an interest in smells and scent early on, she was convinced that this was quite normal. Even today, she keeps in mind many olfactory memories of this period.
She remembers, moreover, the scent of myrtle from her baby cream, her grandmother’s Miss Dior, her aunt’s Chanel No. 19, the smells of her vacation in Italy … still in her memories that she draws her inspiration.

This opened the way for him to perfume and allowed him to do an internship in his laboratory as well as another with Robertet. This then enabled her to join the Givaudan perfumery school, a company that she has never left and for which she still works today as a master perfumer.
