Christophe Laudamiel made his name in the industry creating mega-hit fragrances - Ralph Lauren’s Polo Blue, Fierce for Abercrombie & Fitch and Clinique Happy Heart to name just a few. He’s also worked with Tom Ford, Burberry, Michael Kors and Tommy Hilfiger. It’s pretty safe to say he knows his stuff.
In 2010 he founded DreamAir, his innovation-driven perfumery start-up. Working with Firmenich, the world’s largest fine fragrance house for all of his ingredient needs, Christophe designs scent sculptures and installations for museums, galleries and leading retailers all over the world. He’s the only perfumer in the world who’s had fragrances added into the collections at Harvard University, Cleveland Museum of Art and the International Perfumery Museum in Grasse.
Christophe is a vocal defender of perfumery and has given over 130 speeches and lectures at scientific conferences, universities and political institutions. He’s also the founder of not-for-profit Academy of Perfumery in the United States, and, for the first time in modern history, he allowed full publication of a completed fine fragrance for education and artistic purposes.
Christophe also uses his position as an activist for human rights. To enter The Zoo’s website, every visitor has to agree to align themselves 100% in support of human rights and commit to speaking out in support of justice, freedom and equal protection for all communities. We love that, and we’re chuffed to bits to feature a selection of his work here on Hoohaa.
