CARLOS BENAÏM

 

 

Carlos Benaïm is considered to be America’s greatest living perfumer. He owes his success to a great intellectual curiosity that has always pushed him to embrace a world beyond the boundaries of perfume making. He discovered perfumery as a child through his father, who was a pharmacist in Morocco and had a passion for extracting essential oils. “Every summer,” Carlos Benaïm remembers: “my father and I would drive our Jeep through the countryside, in and out of picking and distillation spots, and I would feel his enthusiasm intensifying." He later acquired a deep knowledge of perfume composition under the tutelage of the renowned American perfumer Ernest Shiftan.
