Pierre Benard Segu (Osmoart) managed to find some time in his quite busy schedule to answer my questions, for which I’m grateful!
My only disclaimer regarding this interview is this: as always, when my professor happens to teach with all of his/her heart and soul, sharing knowledge generously and with genuine love – I do fall in love. The most surprising thing for me is that after all these years – I fell in love with – chemistry! I have begun to see it as poetry!
Meet Pierre Benard Segu, and find out more about so many ways he lives, breathes, and shares his knowledge about perfumery!
“The Ghost Perfumer” is the true story of a seductive clothing empire heir – Olivier Creed – who brainwashed perhaps the world’s best perfumer into becoming his secret scent-creator for decades, nicking his byline for nothing but a few custom suits and turning that fragrant output into a company sold in 2020 for about $1 billion to the world’s largest asset manager – all of it amounting perhaps to the greatest con in luxury retail history. – Gabe Oppenheim
Gabe wrote a fascinating and breathtaking true story about people of perfume, art, relationships in the perfume industry, profit, fame, love, deceit, and here is my interview with him!
The Plum Girl Interview- Adventures of a curious nose, or Avventure di un naso curioso: some time ago a dear friend of The Plum Girl, Andrej Babicky asked me to chit-chat with him about perfume ‘n’ stuff. Instead of a podcast, we agreed upon an interview in a written form for the Beauty Scenario webzine.
We discussed perfume/fragrance, perfume reviews, the importance of perfume reviews, and quite a few other scent-related things!
Le Jardin Retrouve has published many interviews with perfumers, perfume lovers, writers, and bloggers in a series named Fragrance Lovers. I’m proud that The Plum Girl blog was featured on their site and grateful to Clara Feder and the whole Le Jardin Retrouve team for the first live Salon I took part in, and the transcript published in LJR Fragrance Lovers posts.
„According to the legend, Venus lost her necklace during a sea bath and the pearls scattered in the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It created a beautiful string of islands with Elba as the most beautiful of its jewels.” – Acqua dell’Elba
