The Master Perfumer

As a natural result, following an international itinerary rich in experience and prestige, Lorenzo Dante Ferro returning to his Venetian and Parma origins, founded in 1982 the artistic artisan company that bears his name in the Terre di Mezzo of Friuli, a geographical area rich with the history that binds it to the Serenissima Republic of Venice, which was to play a fundamental role in the dawning of the earliest artistic perfume creations.

His journey begins in Zurich, Switzerland, where after having completed his studies in chemistry he excels in a selective aptitude test, which signals his admittance into Luzi AG as an apprentice perfumer.

The successive phase brings him to Grasse to undertake studies of the Jean Carles system at l'Ecole de Parfumerie Roure Bertrand Dupont, studies of the techniques of perfume composition at Compagnie d'Argeville and studies of the techniques of extraction and distillation of raw materials at Camilli, Albert & Laloue (Pfizer).

What follows is a budding career as a Parfumeur with Bush Boake Allen Ltd. in London and the Unites States, where he receives the title of Inventor with international patent assignments for his work in research, development and creation of new aromatic raw materials in collaboration with Professors Richard Clive Cookson and Rahman Ansari.

In a career continually on the rise, he is appointed Creative Perfumer at Fritzsche Dodge & Olcott Inc. (BASF) in New York City and afterwards Chief Perfumer at Universal Fragrance Corp. in Brussels and Aromessence Inc. in Paris.

Lorenzo Dante Ferro, originator of the lines "Profumi d'Autore" e "Profumi d'Ambiente", dedicates his creations to a portfolio of cosmopolitan clients and through his participation as a lecturer on the international circuit, bears witness to the role of Master Perfumer and Italian creativity.
