Arnaud Poulain

Arnaud Poulain was born in Arras in 1986. At a young age he developed a passion for cosmology and studied mechanical engineering. In 2007, he took a course in Lens that led to him becoming a perfumer. It was during his first lessons in olfaction that he discovered his hyperosmia (a heightened sense of smell) and where he met Amélie Bourgeois, who would become his mentor and still supports him today in the technical development of his perfumes. After much experience in independent perfumery, he created Les Eaux Primoriales in 2015. Incredibly active, curious and exacting, his creativity is limitless and his character is echoed in his perfume line.
