Perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena Discusses the Life of a Nose – Spiegel Online

Jean-Claude Ellena, 65, was born in Grasse, in Provence, the son of a perfumer. In 2004, he became in-house perfumer for Hermès, where perfume sales have since more than doubled. The company set up a laboratory for Ellena near Grasse in a late 1960s architect’s villa surrounded by black pines and blessed with a view of the Côte d’Azur through full-length windows. Ellena’s new memoir is entitled: “The Diary of a Nose: A Year in the Life of a Parfumeur.”
