Career or vocation? Arturetto Landi is really a chemist, drawn into the world of the art of perfume by chance. Traveling to England after graduation, all he wanted to do was to learn English as the prelude to a career at sea. That changed when he landed a casual job with a scent company. His interest in scent had been aroused and his next career assignment, in Australia, turned out to be in the perfume sector.
