André Gooren, parfumier

André Gooren comes to Fumerie Parfumerie with three years of professional experience working at The Perfume House; however, his interest in fragrance can be traced back to 2007 when a casual interest rapidly developed into an obsession. As a history major André was well-acquainted with the craft of research and began delving into the history of fragrance almost immediately. André began voraciously consuming every book on the subject of perfume, smelling everything he could get his nose on and keeping meticulous records of his impressions for posterity. His passion eventually led him to The Perfume House where he soon attracted the attention of the staff and the owners who immediately recognized his raw talent and offered him a job in 2013. With access to thousands of rare and discontinued fragrances, André’s scent memory grew exponentially over the next several years. Much of his time is dedicated to researching fragrance classifications and developing new systems and to cataloging his olfactory impressions. His knowledge of fragrance history is inimitable. His scent memory is exceptional. He is one of the finest fragrance experts in the country and we are thrilled to have him with us.
