Superstar perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour and The Perfume Lover author Denyse Beaulieu will be making an appearance on Wednesday, July 25th at the L'Artisan Parfumeur shop in London's Covent Garden. Duchaufour and Beaulieu will be discussing their collaboration on Séville à l'aube, the incense-kissed orange blossom perfume inspired by a page out of Denyse's torrid past. (Read The Perfume Lover to flesh out the full story of both perfume and torrid past.) The sniff'n'chat sessions will take place in the afternoon at 2:30-3:45, 4:00-5:15, and 5:30-6:45.
I will be interviewing the dynamic duo at the 2:30 session, so join us for insights on the creation process of a beautiful perfume. In her book, Denyse and Bertrand's interaction comes off at times like a that of an old bickering married couple, so I'm interested to see if they're as kvetch-tastic in person. Let's hope they're not on their boring best behavior.
Any questions you'd like me to ask them? Let me know in the comments.
L'Artisan Parfumeur is located at 13 The Market Building, Covent Garden, London WC2E 8RB. Phone 020 3040 3030 to book your spot at one of the sessions.
