After graduating college, my first design job was at a global fragrance manufacturer, Givaudan. They employ the perfumers who create many of the fragrances for companies, designers, and celebrities like Calvin Klein, Victoria’s Secret, Marc Jacobs, Britney Spears, and Tom Ford.
My job there was a lot about creating mock packaging for the client meetings, kind of like really sexy frosting in order to sell a cake recipe. I created this packaging concept for Brooks Brothers, inspired by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux‘s collection of antique perfumer bottles.
This is the actual photo I took of our mocked up bottles for their meeting.
The client ended up using my design almost exactly, which is thrilling! After leaving the company to start my own studio, I had forgotten about this product until I stumbled upon it recently.
Here are the unisex splash colognes that you can buy at Brooks Brothers, created by perfumer Rodrigo Flores-Roux.
