The Society of Scent

The Society of Scent team and their network are perfumers, brand builders and creative visionaries. It is an independent scent creation lab realized by four partners: Jean-Claude Delville (The Nose), Frédéric Jacques, Mireya Zendejas and Béatrice Dupire. Together they have sought to do something new, outside the code of the perfume industry, totally independent, which can manifest as a real physical experience, self-funded and transparent. Focusing on the power of scent, wellbeing, knowledge, education and experience. The Society of Scent looks at the world through scent and its powers…i.e wellbeing and mood.

‘The nose’ - Jean Claude Delville in his own words:

Jean-Claude Delville

Combining colors, music notes, taking pictures or flowers arrangement were a simple passion and I knew that I could have spent long hours playing with any of these elements. As a teenager, life caught me by surprise and gave me a chance to become a perfumer, a rare job, fascinating, different, full of joy and tears. I was born in Paris France but very early, travelling, exploring and discovering new sensations were like an addiction. (...) When life is inspiring me to create a perfume, I escape, I transcend, I forget the world and disappear into my research. It is a very particular experience. I have been called a French revolutionary and I love it, if that’s what it takes to capture a new emotion in a bottle, tell a new story, a new melody. I am a lucky man, I love what I do and I want to continue to design very special fragrances.”

Rendez-vous on Sunday, 26th of January, at noon, during Playtime Paris at the Pirouette Screen Capture Exhibition Space!
