Interview with Karen Gilbert about Perfumery

In this episode, I spoke with Karen Gilbert, a UK based perfumery trainer and author of the book ‘Perfume – The Art & Craft of Fragrance’ - an absolute wealth of information on fragrance. In our conversation, we talked about Karen’s career journey to where she is today, the relationship between the cosmetic and fragrance sector, and why smell is important in personal care. We also took a bit of a dive into the nitty gritties of perfumery, from fragrance families, accords, aroma chemicals, sustainability and so much more.
