THE NOSE BEHIND THE FRAGRANCE
As a child in France, Clement Gavarry grew up in the fields of Grasse, brilliant and lush with carpets of flowers that filled the air with jasmine, lavender, and rose.
Today, as a perfumer with the IFF, Gavarry concentrates on creating fine fragrances for women and men, finding his inspiration in all that surrounds him - from nature to art to music to the sports he so enjoys. And while he has spent most of his life in France, Gavarry thrives on the energy and excitement of New York where he has collaborated on a number of successful fragrances, including Prada, Prada (2004 Fragrance Foundation Fifi Award winner); Carolina, Carolina Herrara; Chloe Collection 2005, Chloe; Eternity Summer, Calvin Klein and Prada Tendre, Prada (2007 Cosmetic Executive Women Award).
Most recently, Gavarry worked with Linda Gerlach, founder of The Gerlach Group, on the creation of her fragrance, "Love, the Key to Life". Gavarry notes that, initially, his vision for her fragrance was sparked by the concept and packaging - an elegant black and gold box housing a sculpled glass interpretation of the Ankh - and fueled by the flowers that so colored his childhood. "Creating a beautiful, sophisticated perfume based on those flowers, with the rose centifolia of Grasse as the main character, has always been a dream of mine. For me, in this fragrance, the warmth of white ambers added to the floral blend is symbolic of the Ankh which, in itself, represents love. "Love, the Key to Life" has allowed me to realize my dream."
Gavarry holds a master's degree in chemistry and trained at Institut Superieur International de Parfums, Cosmetiques et Aromes Alimentaires (ISIPCA) in Versailles. In 2004, he completed his training at IFF's Perfumery School.
