Inner beauty can’t be seen, it’s something you feel. A perfume is just such a phenomenon. It’s something you perceive – subtle or intense, shy or provocative. In a split second, a scent can carry us back in time or whisk us away to far-off lands. Images are created in our mind’s eye. Could anything be more fascinating? My great passion lies with the special creations – olfactory masterpieces by famous perfumers or up-and-coming newcomers. This was the idea when I created olfactorialist.com, a platform with a focus on niche perfumery and special editions, but also for classics and interesting new releases of big brands and fashion houses. olfactorialist.com is a place for inspiration that carries my own personal touch.
