Dominique Ropion :: Perfumers

Dominique Ropion

Because he is probably the most skilled perfumer today. He seems to have the best knowledge of raw materials. His technique is amazing. [...] Dominique is always open to new ideas and this was one for sure! Other top perfumers are not always that open-minded. — Frederic Malle, explaining why he worked with Dominique Ropion on Géranium Pour Monsieur.1

Dominique Ropion trained at Roure Bertrand Dupont; he subsequently worked at Florasynth and Dragoco before joining International Flavors & Fragrances in 2000.

Dominique Ropion won Cosmetic Valley's International Fragrance Prize (formerly the Prix François Coty) in 2008.
