Edmond Roudnitska, a freelance perfumer and philosopher, has marked modern perfumery with his style, personality, vision, perfumes and writings.
He is the forerunner of a new artistic movement in perfumery, based on aesthetics and olfactory form.
Together with his wife Thérèse Roudnitska, he founded the company Art et Parfum, his production and creation centre, on the heights of Grasse in Spéracèdes.
An extraordinary life from the Belle époque to the present day.
Olivier Maure, who had the opportunity to work at Art et Parfum with Thérèse, Edmond and Michel Roudnitska and who presides over it today, tells us about the company’s history, olfactory art and mythical perfumes.
He explains how this artistic vision prevails to this day with more than 40 freelance perfumers advocating Edmond Roudnitska’s values.
