Over a period of more than two decades, Bertrand Duchaufour has created fragrances for brands such as Dior, Christian Lacroix, Acqua di Parma, Lancome, Penhaligons, L’Artisan Parfumeur, The Different Company and others. He started his career in perfumery at Lautier Florasynth in Grasse; later he went on to compose further great fragrances for Créations Aromatiques and Symrise.
In 2008, he decided to turn his back on the industry and focus his attention on niche perfumery. After several years as a Perfumer Consultant, he joined the TechnicoFlor Team in Paris, where he is able to merge his perfumery art with ethics and a commitment to the environment.
Duchaufour is a free spirit who strives with great passion for constant innovation. He views fragrances as works of art that engender emotions, and he loves to test the boundaries of opposites, playing them off against each other. His non-conformist creations are composed using high-quality ingredients, including davana, orris, oud, mimosa and osmanthus.
