Alberto Morillas, master perfumer at Firmenich, offers a particularly eloquent quote to describe what a beautiful perfume is - and what it can do to you...
"A formula is like a sentence, and thousands of beautiful ones exist. Like a writer, when a perfumer puts emotion into his work, the result makes your heart skip a beat."
- Alberto Morillas
