Perfectly Imperfect, Apprentice Perfumer Ashley Hofmann

For men's fine fragrance my favorite is Sauvage by Christian Dior, and woman's fine fragrance I would say Daisy by Marc Jacobs. My least favorite scent is clove: ever since I had a dry socket after getting my wisdom teeth out the scent just reminds me of a bad experience. have many favorite scents, but I'd say my favorite is sugar cookie. It reminds me of Christmas time with my family. I feel all my favorite scents have story that brings back memory from my past.

Having a dad that works at Estee Lauder, fragrance and cosmetics have been a part of my life since I was a kid. I grew up loving the industry. I started my career as a Cosmetic Chemist but was always more intrigued by fragrance, so I decided to follow my passion!

Shanghai Gān Jū, Apprentice Perfumer Delphine Perdon Rupnow

have always been sensitive about odors of Nature, interested in scented products and fragrances since I was a child. Back in France, I decided to take on a journey of organic chemistry for that purpose. My initial exposure to the Fragrance Industry was in 2005, as my first internship started at an essential oil company, where I could smell and learn numerous natural raw materials, and would never stop from there.
