As every artist does, Emilie Copperman believes in the power of dreams. Indeed she discovered her passion for the world of fragrances at the age of 14. The magical encounter with the Perfumer of the Rochas House was a determining factor in her life. She then decided to study organic chemistry and learned the job of Perfumer at the prestigious International Institute of Perfumes, Cosmetics & Aromas in Versailles. For over 20 years, she has been working for the most prestigious fashion and designers brands. Her success relies on her capacity to follow feminine intuition. Her work has been many times awarded by peers and institutional recognitions such as Lalique Prize of the Talents du Luxe in 2011.Emilie's portfolio includes: Comme Des Garcons 'Serpentine', Givenchy 'Play', Amouage 'Beloved Man', Paco Rabanne 'Black XS', Balmain 'Extatic', Sonia Rykiel 'Sonia Rykiel', Karl Lagerfeld 'Kapsule Floriental', Van Cleef & Arpels 'Reve', Burberry 'Britsheer'

COMMENTARY: Known to the Ancient Sumerians as “the joy plant”, the red poppy symbolized nocturnal oblivion in the pre-Christian world,specifically sleep, night, and death. Translating to "moon" because it would glow in the dark fields, Soma is the sweet, milky sap that oozes from the bulbs which is collected and then processed into raw smokable opium gum. As the Chinese used the poppy for sex, we wished to impart a sweaty, musky sensuality to spicy, intoxicating smoke, and imagined two warm nude bodies in embrace, intertwined in hallucinogenic fever, and chasing a fiery dragon into the clouds above. Poppy Soma won Perfume Extraordinaire, the only blindfolded prize at the 2017 Fragrance Foundation Awards.
