Laurent Le Guernec grew up in Paris, and became interested in perfume when, as a chemistry student at the University of Paris, he received an opportunity to continue his studies at the prestigious ISIPCA in Versailles. During his studies, he worked for the famous natural material producing Laboratoire Monique Remy in Grasse, which coupled with the tutelage of no less than Pierre Bourdan and Jean-Claude Ellena gave him a reputation for being highly skilled with natural florals. This lead to a career with Mane and credit for hugely popular hit fragrances including Michael Kors Michael For Women. He now works for IFF.
