Since he was a child, Laurent was keen to discover how things were made, going well beyond the first impression. This curiosity leads him to undertake Biochemistry studies, successfully completed. At the age of 16, during his studies, he approaches the world of perfumery staring at a lady who was mixing ingredients to create an Eau de Cologne.
He began study as a self-taught the greatest fragrances of the past, trying to reproduce and reinterpret them, creating new concepts.
He worked along other creators, like Dominique Ropion, his mentor over the years of collaboration with IFF, creating iconic fragrances.
Distinctive note: Ambergris
Smell: amber, musky, animal, marine powdery (seaweed)
Origin: Gray amber, not to be confused with yellow amber (fossilized resin of vegetable origin), is secreted by the Sperm Whale, which then releases it into the sea, where it must remain for a long time before releasing its characteristic smell. Considered as precious as gold, it has been traded since 1000 BC. Ambergris is sourced in New Caledonia, where it runs aground on the beach during floods.
Extraction: it is used as an infusion, tincture or extract. Nowadays it is almost entirely recreated with other natural raw materials.
