« Aux sources du parfum », the ABC's book

Perfumer and teacher in my field for about twenty years, it is while preparing my courses that I thought of this book. I wanted to tell how the perfumer’s imagination works, describe how the artist structures his thought and exercises his craft.

To do this, I had to describe a language with its codes, its concepts, which often borrow from other arts such as music or painting. Are we not talking about «notes», «chords», «form» of perfume? This language, however, did not always exist. To understand how and when it had emerged, I had to go to «Aux sources du parfum».

Throughout the book, Marina Jung Allégret transports you into the mysterious world of perfume creation. Through anecdotes and images, she tells her work and research to better exchange with students and pass on her job to the general public. «Aux Sources du Parfum» is an essay to understand everything about this wonderful art.
