Perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour has been hired by niche line L'Artisan Parfumeur, but he will not be the "house nose". He will be in "in charge of creating bespoke fragrances and of other olfactory projects for the brand". L'Artisan will continue to use a variety of outside perfumers to develop new fragrances, and Duchaufour will continue to work for other brands as well. (via osmoz)
