A word from Melanie Jane

I teach students how to create scents  the way they used to be made, before over-complication became the theme of future fragrances.

Master perfumers like Edmond Roudnitska, the nose behind iconic perfumes, “Diorissimo”, “Diorella”, and “Eau Sauvage”, had the same belief.
"Roudnitska started to react against the harsh synthetics and ‘perfume-confectionary’, a common practice following the advent of synthetic materials. Feeling unable to continue, he returned to the South of France, where in a house, high in the hills above Grasse he started his own studio.

Once again inspired by nature, Roudnitska felt that the structure of perfumes had to be simplified, pared back to the essential core.
“Not only were we pushing perfumes in the direction of food, but we were also putting too many ingredients into them,” he explains. “It made them too complicated and muddled. Perfume was becoming a little like the millefleurs,” as Perfumers called the containers into which all the perfume trials get thrown.

“When we put too many ingredients into a formula, it tends to turn it into a millefleurs! That thought hit me. From that moment, I told myself, ‘I must work simply’. I clung to the motto, simplify, simplify, simplify.”
Excerpt from “Perfume Legends, French Feminine Fragrances” by Michael Edwards
