The Fragrance Pro - Going Rogue
The most celebrated fragrances often inspire nostalgia. But perfumers themselves travel in a very different direction: They forge ahead, coaxing fresh ideas out of classic techniques. ... It's a recipe that transcends scent. Risk takers may fail on occasion, but the moments they succeed are the ones that make the world spin.
A former makeup artist, Lutens isn't a perfumer by trade, but his Paris fragrance boutique breathed fresh life into the industry in the 1990s. His goal was to offer radical alternatives to safe trends, combining cutting-edge ingredients with total creative freedom. A musk in the original, dirty sense, Muscs Koublaï Khan, which Lutens created with Christopher Sheldrake, challenged the easy, splashy fragrances of the time.
