Perfumer Maurice Roucel on his own fragrances:
With «KenzoAir», man has accepted his feminine side and retained something of the little boy that he once was. For me, there is no such thing as a fragrance for men or a fragrance for women.
«Insolence» for Guerlain would not have been the same if it were made for another brand. Culture comes into play. It's a controlled insolence, which is positioned in the fruity family.
This [24, Faubourg], for me, is the last great classic. It represents all the elegance of Hermès. It's a distinguished woman whose femininity is expressed in an amber base. This fragrance took 5 years to develop.
This [DKNY Be Delicious] is the most extroverted of all my fragrances. It's romance in New York, with a floral structure to give it a form of originality and modernism.
