Giuseppe Baldini “Just like a musical cord a perfume cord contains four essences or notes, carefully selected for their harmonic affinity. Each perfume contains three cords, the head, the heart and the base, necessitating twelve notes in all. The head cord contains the first impression lasting a few minutes, before giving way to the heart cord the theme of the perfume lasting several hours, finally the base cord the trail of the perfume lasting several days. The ancient Egyptians believed one can only create a truly original perfume by adding an extra note one final essence that will bring out and dominate the others.” …. Jean-Baptiste Grenouille “The soul of beings is their scent. You said that master.” Giuseppe Baldini “Did I?” Jean-Baptiste Grenouille “I will make you as many perfumes as you want but you have to teach me how to capture the smell of all things. Can you do that?” Baldini “Well, I’ll try.” Jean-Baptiste Grenouille “Then teach me everything you know. And I’ll make you the best perfume in the whole world.”
