Christian Provenzano is a parfumeur who currently serves as the Global Director of Perfumery at CPL Aromas. Christian Provenzano first developed an interest in perfumery while playing guitar in a band. At the age of 19 he travelled to Amsterdam and began working as a laboratory technician for a parfumeur who told him that he had a "great nose." Taking the parfumeur's comments to heart, Provenzano enrolled in perfume school. After graduating, he returned to work for the same parfumeur as a trainee. He joined CPL Aromas some time later and has been with the firm for over twenty-five years. The recipient of two FiFi Awards, he has composed fragrances for a wide range of luxury fragrance houses including Clive Christian, By Kilian, Boadicea the Victorious and Penhaligon's.
