Philippe Paparella-Paris, Perfumer
A native from the South of France, Philippe studied sciences in Montpellier, France and specialized in perfumery at the ISIPCA school in Versailles, France. He started working for Mane as an intern, and then followed their Perfumer Training Program after a couple of years. After living in various places in Asia, Philippe joined Symrise in May 2008. He especially loves working with woody, ambery and musky notes for their sensual aspects. Furthermore from his experience in Southeast Asia, he likes to work with exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple. He is always thrilled by the transformation of a written formula into an actual fragrance, especially when it turns out to be beautiful and impressive.
