Bertrand Duchaufour is a French perfumer.

Biography[edit]

Bertrand Duchafour trained at the Lautier Florasynth group in Grasse while also working at Florasynth Paris and Créations Aromatiques (the two companies merged in 1997). From 2008, he has been L'Artisan Parfumeur's perfumer 'in residence'. [1] He has also created fragrances for several other perfume houses, including Penhaligon's, Amouage, Comme des Garcons, Givenchy and Christian Dior.

In 2012 he worked for Gulnara Karimova, the controversial daughter of Uzbek dictator Islam Karimov, when she decided to release fragrances. Duchaufour created her fragrances Victorious for men and Mysterieuse for women.[2][3] Asked why he would involve himself with the repressive regime of Karimov, Duchaufour responded in writing to fragrance blog CaFleureBon: "I have been a little bit naive and just considered the good part of the project (money) and didn't realize what was behind."[4]
