Collection: Karine Chevallier

Graduated from ISIPCA in 1995, she was trained as a perfumer by the prestigious Mark Buxton at Haarmann & Reimer. In 2000, she decided to have a break and graduated from a Master in marketing in the Luxury Industry and had work experience at Guerlain. But she felt homesick with perfumery and ended opening the Parisian headquarters of a small fragrance company home based in Grasse.

In 2005, confident in her success being a perfumer and thanks to Michel Roudnitska who welcomed her in the independent perfumer pool within Art et Parfum, she created her own company OLFACTIVE DESIGN.

Since she has been working for many brands but also in artistic fields such as re-creating the the smell of the Chauvet's cavern, or creating a perfume for the world-famous cartoonist and painter Enki Bilal for his exhibition at the Arts et Métiers museum in Paris.

Passionate, she decided in 2014 to share with youngsters and teaches since perfumery for students at the Ecole Supèrieure du Parfum in Paris. In 2018, LONDON, wih she created for Gallivant perfumes was a finalist at the Art and Olfaction Awards.
