We’re in the center of Grasse. The wisterias are in full bloom and cover the walls and balconies of the Musée International de la Parfumerie (MiP), where Stéphanie Bakouche acts as the Osmothèque link and guest lecturer. Recently, Stéphanie set up her new laboratory on a nearby street, Chemin de la Rose de Mai (May Rose Way). What could be more appropriate for a perfumer? Just further down the road at the Edmond Roudnitska estate, her supplier, Accords et Parfums, is eagerly waiting for orders from this young independent perfumer.
