Annie Buzantian

Country: France

A childhood spent on the Romanian seaside and the forests of Lebanon exposed Annie Buzantian to the natural world and inspired a passion for sensory beauty. Initially a stranger to the world of fragrance, she was given her start in the early ‘70s when a lab assistant job at Universal Oil Products (now Givaudan) gave way to an opportunity as a junior perfumer, giving her the opportunity to learn under the late, legendary master perfumer Elie Roger. The intervening years saw Buzantian herself elevated to the level of master perfumer with Firmenich, where her creations for classic brands such as Tommy Hilfiger’s Tommy and Estée Lauder’s Pleasures led to a richly-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Perfumers in 2003.
