Alberto Morillas experienced his first olfactory emotions in Seville, the city where he was born. In the warmth of Andalusia, the scents of orange blossom, jasmine, rosemary and incense bathed his entire youth.
Having followed his parents into exile in Switzerland when he was only 11 years old, Alberto Morillas continued to frequent perfume shops, which at the time was rather rare for boys of his age.
Reading a portrait of Jean-Paul Guerlain in Vogue radically changed his perception of the profession of perfumer. Without a degree in chemistry, he managed to convince Firmenich to offer him a position in scientific research on natural essences.
With the success of Byzance by Rochas, CK One by Calvin Klein, Pleasures by Estée Lauder, Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani and Pi by Givenchy, Alberto Morillas was awarded the title of Master Perfumer.
FOR A PASSION
Today, Alberto Morillas is one of Firmenich's nine Master Perfumers and he is constantly pushing his creative mastery to new heights.
