Our perfumers evolve in their own creative worlds, their originality lies in their ability to reinvent themselves with each composition while bringing their personal touch.
Wishing the perfumery of tomorrow to be more respectful and more virtuous, our perfumers create with their heart and their conscience.

In september 2020, we launched our very own perfumer training program. The purpose was to pass on our companie’s know-how in perfume composition to the younger generation, especially regarding the use of natural raw materials.
This program spreads over 4 years. It is designed and overseen by our teams at TechnicoFlor, so all the essential aspects of the perfumer's profession are studied.
We integrate one student per training cycle, starting with Félix Deschamps, perfumer assistant, who started his training alongside Bertrand Duchauffour in 2018, and will finish his program by the end of 2022.
Legacy is very much valued at TechnicoFlor, naturally, François-Patrick Sabater, Bertrand Duchaufour and myself have been wishing to transmit our perfumer’s know-how to young and passionate people so they can have the possibility to be trained for this wonderful profession.
