It’s not every day you meet a dreamer and a scientist.
As a teenager, Stephen came across a National Geographic article about perfumers, and he instantly knew what path he wanted to follow. His ever-inquisitive mind led him to the world of science, and he received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering.
After an established career in flavors, he switched paths to follow his lifelong dream of becoming a perfumer. His inquisitive nature and curious mind brought him to New York City, where he started his perfumery training. Stephen believes in following dreams; his approach to perfume reflects a sense of play and intelligence. He believes that fragrances can truly bring people to a place of happiness, using scent as a visceral cue to recall memories or create new experiences.
