"I have left Vietnam at the age of 20 to pursuit a perfumery career, without knowing anything about fragrances. My first knowledge of perfumery was formed thanks to a small box of perfume ingredients, where I smelt Patchouli, Vétiver, Cedarwood, Vanillin, Iris, etc. Iris butter transported me to my summer vacation in my grandfather's hometown in Binh Dinh. My tiny feet touched the ground between two rice fields and gave me a chill, cooling feeling, just like smelling this rich powdery Iris butter. Essence Rose Bulgari smells like delicious Vietnamese litchi Essence Ylang Ylang reminded me of my grand mother's pocket and ripped banana peels. And so on. Those "marmottes" (small bottle 3ml) have enabled me to discover the emotional power of scent and allow me to make my first step into that fascinating world.
I know many of you, perfume lovers and enthusiasts learning like me, who desire to know more about this mysterious world. Hence, I have created these perfume ingredients box, in collaboration with Scents Vortex | L'Apogée, to make the world of fragrances more accessible to everyone, especially to my beloved Vietnamese."
