Perfumer Pierre Bourdon

Pierre Bourdon was born in 1946 in Paris. He initially studied political science, but eventually decided to follow his passion for perfumery. In 1971, Bourdon met legendary perfumer Edmond Roudnitska in the south of France. This fateful encounter inspired him to train for five years as a perfumer at Roure in Grasse, where he studied under the guidance of Roudnitska and Jean Carles.

After his training, Pierre Bourdon joined Roure Paris, where he worked on perfumed personal hygiene products such as creams, deodorants and shampoos. He then spent a year in the United States before creating Yves Saint Laurent's hit fragrance Kouros in 1981. In 1982, Bourdon co-founded Takasago Europe, where he worked as head perfumer for nine years. At Takasago, he created Davidoff Cool Water, a groundbreaking fragrance that revolutionized perfume trends in the 1980s.

A decade later, Bourdon became creative director at Quest, where he spent two years before being named CEO of the French arm of Fragrance Resources in Paris. Under his leadership, the company expanded its activity in luxury fragrances and in 1995 Bourdon composed Dolce Vita for Parfums Christian Dior.

Pierre Bourdon has created some of the most iconic and beloved fragrances during his illustrious career, including YSL Kouros, Davidoff Cool Water, Serge Lutens Feminite du Bois, Creed Green Irish Tweed and Montblanc Individuel. He has recently composed perfumes for Frédéric Malle's Éditions de Parfums and the French niche house MDCI.

As the only student of Edmond Roudnitska, Pierre Bourdon was deeply influenced by the philosophy that perfumes should be created as works of art. He has consistently demonstrated an exceptional talent for combining artistic craftsmanship and innovation, resulting in some of the most celebrated and generation-defining fragrances in modern perfumery.
