Guy Robert “Our art is so mysterious, most of the perfumers cannot explain the proceedings they use to build a perfume.
Our method could be compared to the Art of Cooking, a sort of “rule of thumb” (empiricism), and I agree this is not looking very serious!”
It is not possible to compose a symphony without knowing all the rules of music, but it appears that it is possible to compose perfumes without the help of any strict mathematical rules such as those that regulate musical harmonies.
