A few years ago I wrote a story about the envelope-pushing perfumer Christophe Laudamiel, who has developed fragrances for Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren, and Estee Lauder. He's the tremendously talented bad boy of the perfume industry. This spring he's staging the world's first scent opera in NYC.
Laudamiel will be in Boston at the French Library on May 11, and if you're remotely curious about the fragrance industry, you should attend his talk. It's $15, or $10 if you're a member of the French Library. You can RSVP at 617-912-0400.
Here's the description of the night's program:
The world renowned French perfume creator will invite us to travel to the heart of our senses, to biological levels within the universe of emotions awakened by smells. He will show us how olfactory senses are a powerful means of communicating and educating, in the business world, as well as in our personal lives. Laudamiel will talk about the use of technologies associated with the spread of a scent in order to create a specifically intended ambiance or concept.
