Did you know that Yuri Gutsatz once fragranced the world famous Paris Opera House? Maurice Lehmann, then director of the Paris Opera, gave him the task of perfuming the theatre during Act 3 of Rameau’s Indes Galantes (Ballet des Roses) This fragrant opera ran for THREE YEARS.
Yes, this is the same opera house where Gaston Leroux set his novel, the Phanton of the Opera. Did you also know that there really is an underground lake underneath the opera house? What an experience it must have been to have sight, scent and sound all at once with such history above and beneath you. No other perfumer had a life quite like Yuri’s!
