Ralf Schwieger

A trained chemist, Ralf Schwieger left Berlin to study perfumery at Grasse's prestigious Roure Bertrand Dupont. He has composed fragrances for such houses as Yves Saint Laurent and Hermès but his creations for niche houses like Frédéric Malle's Éditions de Parfums and Etat Libre d'Orange have earned him critical acclaim and a reputation as one of the most innovative parfumeurs working today.
