Smells like Money

smells like money
Smelling and sniffing perfumes alone could turn you into a millionaire! It sounds easy as it seems but bear in mind that this is not for everybody. If you have the skills and the talent to identify 2,000 smells then you could climb the ladder of success and be the next millionaire.

There are only about 1,000 people worldwide who can put fragrances together with the power of their nose, and many of them have six-figure salaries. These men and women are well-trained to perfection for they have spent three years as a trainee perfumer and by the end of which they must be able to identify 2,000 ingredients by smell alone. After being a trainee perfumer, they also spent another four years as an apprentice.

Being a perfumer is not easy but I didn’t say it’s impossible. It takes a lot of discipline, time, knowledge and proper training to create a fragrance that has a unique soul and character that appeals to most people. But no matter what it takes for you to become a successful perfumer the most important tool that you should equip yourself with is your intuition and your nose.
