Eminent Master Perfumer, Jacques Chabert, is the architect behind Molton Brown’s most iconic collections. With 50 years’ industry experience, he has an exquisite expertise of the fragrance world. His olfactory repertoire includes the adventurous Re-charge Black Pepper and escapist Heavenly Gingerlily. As he says, perfume is part of civilisation.
I read a lot of foreign language newspapers and magazines. I may read an article on a composer, writer or painter, and it will give me ideas.
Examining the world through multiple lenses, Jacques sources his inspiration from international literature: “I may read an article on a composer, writer or painter, and it will give me ideas.” For him, perfumery is an expression of the self. Re-charge Black Pepper began as his own personal fragrance back in 2001; now bestselling and treasured for its robust, spicy vigour.
I need muses who confront me with a challenge. People who trust me; let me dare.
