Selected quotes

I was always surrounded by scents and smells which is part of life in that city, natural ones from the crops of flowers growing in the fields, and industrial ones as well, from the perfume factories. Then when I was 13/14 I asked to visit a perfume plant and was fascinated about the atmosphere, all the people in their white coats dipping and mixing scents. — On growing up in Grasse, quoted at Meet The Perfumer: Michel Almairac at Harrods.
