Interesting quote: “I’ve had briefs where I’ve just wanted to walk out of the room! They say, ‘We want a fragrance that’s never existed before! It’s coming from Mars!’ To me that’s a pretension. Unrealistic. Everything is always reinvented, and Miuccia [Prada] understands that. What there is with her is incredible creativity. You can do things that are very different. So this [Prada Amber pour Homme] is absolutely not a ‘me-too’ fragrance. You can say, ‘It reminds me of amber, of suede,’ but the overall effect is that it reminds you of nothing. That’s Prada. A piece of Prada clothing may remind you of certain designs, of aspects, of images, of history, but the ultimate coherent effect is something that you have never seen before.” (V Magazine)
Note about the Directory: This is our first entry in the Directory of Perfumers, Artistic Directors, and Fragrance Designers (bottle and packaging designers) that we felt would be practical to have on hand. We come across so much scattered information (including sometimes, but rarely about evaluators) that we decided it was time to keep a record of it.
Complementary information is welcome. We aim less at exhaustiveness at the moment as at providing a portrait of the artist, but of course with time we might get further opportunity to become exhaustive. Please consider the Directory as an open structure.
