Perfumer Laurent Le Guernec

Laurent Le Guernec, a Paris-born perfumer, has significantly influenced the world of fragrances by combining his passion for detail and knowledge of classic French perfumery with a contemporary American touch. His unique approach to perfume creation and his ability to work with floral notes has earned him global appeal and a reputation as a master of floral notes.

Born in January 1967 near Paris, Laurent Le Guernec spent part of his childhood in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. He remembers being surrounded by beautiful fragrance flacons when his mother and grandmother often applied perfume. During his chemistry studies at the University of Paris, he learned about the prestigious Institut Superieur International de Parfums, Cosmetiques et Arômes Alimentaires (ISIPCA) in Versailles, France. Inspired by his grandfather, an artisan and an artist, Laurent decided to pursue a career in perfumery.

During his studies at ISIPCA, Le Guernec worked for Laboratoire Monique Remy in Grasse, a leading manufacturer of natural raw materials in the industry. This opportunity enabled him to control the use of natural raw materials, especially floral notes. In 1991, he moved to the United States to work for Fragrance Resources, where he gained invaluable experience working closely with leading perfumer Pierre Bourdon. His other notable mentor is Jean Claude Elena, Master Perfumer at Givaudan.

Laurent's collaboration with Mane fragrances led to the creation of several successful fragrances, such as the FIFI award winning Michael by Michael Kors and the Bond No. 9 fragrances. He currently works for International Flavors and Fragrances (IFF), focusing on fine fragrances.

Laurent Le Guernec's background in both French and American cultures enables him to create clear, fresh and precise perfumes that appeal to a global audience. As a visual person, he draws inspiration from photographs, individual flowers, bouquets and the colors they contain. He brings this heightened awareness and appreciation for art, creation and aesthetics in all his creations.
