Parfumeur

The parfumer K H Bork has studied the profession of parfumer in Cannes,

Grasse and Holzminden more than 30 years ago. The parfumeur   studies

approximately 3 000 fragrances during the 5 years of his education. Every day he develops his sense of smell through the study of natural, synthetic and fragrances with identical properties to the raw fragrances. The goal of this intense study is to develop the ability to recognize and remember scented mater. The parfumeur must know the raw material by its scent as well as its chemical and physical properties and must especially remember the decay and the lasting penetration of each scent. Only after acquiring all this knowledge is the junior-parfumeur able to attempt his own experiments of composing a scent. The myriad scents and smell of nature are the parfumers inspiration and palette to conduct his own experiments at creations. These studies and simple compositions form the base for later more complex and creative endeavors. The life of the parfumer consists of, aside from the study of nature, an intense analytical learning of all known perfumes; especially those are considered the milestones of the profession.

After the successful apprenticeship as parfumer, KHB worked primarily in the field of alcohol based perfumes and developed creations for perfumes and EDT.

KHB worked on many creations that still available to this day in the better stores.

After more than 10 years of creative work in Paris, KHB started new endeavors – development, evaluation, marketing, international project management. He worked for Harman & Reimers and later for Symrise, the number 4 in the world of scents and aromas.

K H Bork now works as independent parfumer – creator of  CINESCENT and MAXXSCENT  is looking forward to develop a unique scent for your special needs
