Bertrand Duchaufour

Bertrand DuchaufourBertrand Duchaufour is considered by many one of the greatest contemporary noses. Bertrand began his perfumer career in 1985, working for Florasynth Group in Grasse.

A master perfumer, his creative process follows two fundamental principles: Firstly, he believes that balance is achieved when opposites attract, like yin and yang. Secondly, he asserts that nothing is lost nor is created; everything is transformed. He distorts and deconstructs nature, playing with contrasts such as vegetal and animal notes.

To develop her India-inspired fragrances, Neela Vermeire was delighted to work with this famous French perfumer and admirer of India. Bertrand also creates perfumes for other brands.
