Hello! I’m Lucas, I live in Poland & I love perfume. Actually not only perfume, but anything that is related to fragrance and the sense of smell. Many people ask how I developed this sort of interest but even I don’t know a clear answer to that question. I didn’t grew in a family with perfume “traditions”, none of my parents or grandparents used perfume. Perhaps it was due to living in smaller town with not much entertainment, what lead me to regular visits in nearest big city where I could go to the cinema, do some shopping & visit perfumeries. That’s when I think it all began for me, and I was just a teenager back then.
Hungry for the perfume knowledge I started cosmetics chemistry studies at the university. Apart tons of chemical stuff I also learned a lot about different fragrant molecules, aroma compouds and different olfaction theories from more scientific point of view. 5 years later I graduated and started working as fragrance evaluator. My everyday job consists of selecting fragrances based on customers criteria. I work with my nose. However I have a dream that one day I will undergo a perfumer training, so that I can create perfume that will inspire future generations.
At the very beginning of my adventure Prada Amber Pour Homme (perfumer Daniela Andrier) was the only bottle I had. Through the years my collection has grown much bigger but I still consider this Prada to be my signature, a perfume I can reach for any time I want & it won’t let me down.
After warm and encouraging response to some perfume impressions I was posting on various perfume forums, I decided to start my own blog. That’s how Chemist in the Bottle came to life in the middle of 2012. Ever since then I’ve been sharing my perfume reviews, kitchen tips and travelogues. It was also thanks to the blog that I got a chance to go to Esxence and Pitti Fragranze, two biggest fairs dedicated to artistic perfumery. My blog might not be the most popular one out there, but I do love the faithful audience that I have. Actually I can call all of these people my friends. Would you like to join this little scented world of Chemist in the Bottle? We’d be delighted to have you here.
