Welcome perfume lover!
My name is Lucas, I’m a founder and writer of Chemist in the Bottle. The blog was established on the 1st day of July 2012, I created it from my personal need of wanting to share with other people the experience of smelling perfume, instead of keeping thoughts and observations for myself. My true love for fragrance things started in 2006 and influenced by this, guided by a dream of becoming a perfumer one day, I started university studies of cosmetics chemistry specialization. In June 2014 I received my master’s degree in chemistry. Few months ago I started working in fragrance evaluation.
Every perfume is a personal story to me, every scent evokes different pictures in my imagination, it triggers different emotions and reveals its nuances differently on skin of various people. To me it seems like there are no bad perfumes – there are only people who are not suitable to wear a particular creation. That’s why one and the same perfume can be loved by one and hated by someone else. It’s all a matter of taste, and this is the individual thing which shouldn’t be judged.
People say that they like my approach of talking about perfumes because they find my reviews to be containing both descriptive and analytical qualities, mixed with an approach of a chemist. I don’t like to grade my texts in terms of good and bad – you have to try a perfume on your skin anyway. Anyway, I will be honored if you decide to go on a fragrance adventure with me.
