Meet Dr. Vincent
Vincent was born in Annecy, an alpine city in the French Alps.
Early in his childhood, he enjoyed exploring the countryside wildlife and his curiosity for the inner workings of nature led him to study sciences.
At 18, he competed for the XXth Olympiads of Chemistry and was awarded the 3rd national prize. This reward allowed him to feed his growing passion for perfumery by buying lab equipment and distilling his own essential oils.
During his studies, Vincent successively earned a 1st degree in chemistry (2006), a M.Sc. in a Grande Ecole of Chemistry (2010) and a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry (2014).
His education specialised in cosmetic formulation and analytical science.
From 2010 to 2014, he regularly attended the ISIPCA conferences and became a member of the Osmotheque Society. During that period, he also acquired a collection of more than 250 raw materials and started to create his own scents.
In 2016, Vincent attended the Grasse Institute of Perfumery Summer School to perfect his skills on raw materials, olfaction, blending and evaluation. This is where he met Melanie Jane and since then they have developed a fruitful friendship based on a mutual passion for perfumery.
