Philippine Broker joins The Symrise Fine Fragrance


In order to strengthen its team of perfumers in Dubai, Symrise Fine Fragrance is proud to announce the arrival of Philippine Courtière as Senior Perfumer.
Born in Paris, Philippine Courtière grew up in this city that she considers the most beautiful in the world, in the Champ de Mars district where the gardens of the Eiffel Tower served as her playground. If her first olfactory memories brought her back to Switzerland during a holiday in the mountains with smells of moss and dried heather, or lavender from the garden of her parents' family home in Normandy near Cabourg, her nose for perfumes dates back to her youngest age. "I can think of feeling the perfume samples that my parents used to take home in the evening to evaluate them." Indeed, his father was president of Givenchy Couture et Parfums for many years and his mother developed fragrances for Escada. Not to mention his grandfather, Jacques Rouët, commercial director of the House of Dior from 1946, alongside the designer Christian Dior and the investor Marcel Boussac. The one she affectionately nicknames Papi Jacques transmitted to her values of rigor, loyalty as well as his experience of luxury and the firm will to realize his dreams.

After obtaining a master's degree in French and Spanish law from the prestigious University of Nanterre in Paris, which intended her to become a lawyer, it was finally difficult for her to resist the magnetism of her education. His head and heart naturally turned to perfumes. As her grandfather told her when she was young: "The key to success is to find your passion, to believe in yourself and to work hard" It will be perfumery, with her first internships at Takasago (2007) and Robertet (2008), the integration of the Firmenich perfumery school in 2009 before being appointed perfumer in 2014.

Sometimes figurative, always readable, his creative style is clear and easy to understand. Philippine likes to work in blocks that she puts under tension, with duets of unexpected ingredients, captives combined with very beautiful qualities of natural materials. His credo? Tell stories to travel olfactory as well in a distant country, a novel and even in time.
Today the adventure continues within Symrise's Fine Fragrance as a senior perfumer.

"We are delighted to welcome Philippine Courtière as Senior Perfumer. She is one of the most talented perfumers of her generation. His strong expertise in the art of perfumery in the Middle East, combined with his love both personal and professional for France, allows him to distinguish himself by a creativity that infuses a new energy by combining the desires of these two important markets for Symrise, all at the service of a contemporary and unifying signature. Véronique Ferval, Vice President of Creation Symrise Fine Fragrance.
