A native from the South of France, Philippe studied sciences in Montpellier and specialized in perfumery at the ISIPCA school in Versailles. His career started at the Mane Perfumer Training Program, before being posted in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2001. In 2003, Philippe moved in China, where he joined Symrise in May 2008. Since 2016, Philippe has been in Dubai.
Philippe especially loves working with woody, ambery and musky notes for their sensual aspects. In South East Asia, he learned 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, bringing to life a strong feeling or emotion.
Optimism is one of Philippe’s qualities. He is passionate about life, and has a keen interest in fashion and fitness. He does not shy away from trying new things and always keeps an eye open for new technology.
