Link to Interview with Guerlain’s Thierry Wasser on Basenotes

Marian Bendeth’s in-depth interview with Thierry Wasser of Guerlain is now up at Basenotes. He discusses sourcing ingredients, including sustainable sources for sandalwood in Sri Lanka where three trees are planted for every one that is cut. He also talks about the challenges of IFRA, about trying to maintain the old classic formulas while also introducing new spins on them, about the new role of bloggers in the fragrance industry, and about how his early childhood in Switzerland fostered an interest in nature and botany. An interesting read. He certainly has a huge set of responsibilities on his shoulders.

    Thanks for the link. I’m still new to the fragrance world and find the discussion of sourcing, in particular, fascinating.
