A journey in scent: Introducing Paul Schütze

An anti-conventionalist in the tradition-soaked fragrance world, Paul Schütze is the independent force crafting fine scents that vibrate with memories. The self-taught artist, composer and perfumer has constructed a creative triptych, centred on just one process: one more readily linked to making art than perfume.

I was invited to Paul’s home to catch a glimpse and document inside the mind of the multi-sensory scent maker as he guided me through his unorthodox approach to designing a fragrance from his buzzing in-house studio.
