The Scents Inspired by Simone de Beauvoir, Sartre & Kerouac

Timothy Han describes his foray into the world of olfaction as an accident. Inspired by his friend Paul Tvaroh, a master mixologist who makes drinkable perfumes, in 2013 he created a singular scent and gave it to a friend to try. A week later, she said that she had been stopped by three people in the street who were desperate to know which perfume she was wearing. “It wasn’t like other fragrances because I’m not a trained perfumer,” he modestly explains. “I’m not one of those people that can tell you every single ingredient and ratio in a scent just by smelling it and quite frankly the perfume world doesn’t like what I’m doing,” he laughs. “People either love it or hate it.” via Another
