Master perfumer Olivier Cresp works at Firmenich and is the co-founder of Akro Fragrances. It came as no surprise to anyone that Olivier would enter the perfume business: his family history is deeply rooted in perfume. Both his father and grandfather bought and sold natural raw ingredients in Grasse. It was quickly decided that Olivier would work with perfume just like his family. However, he did not start his journey in France, but in the United States where he now works for perfume house Firmenich.
