Perfumer Sandrine Videault Has Died

I just heard that perfumer Sandrine Videault, creator of the wonderful Les Nez Manoumalia, has passed away yesterday.

She recently worked on a perfume called Magnolia Grandiflora for the floral artisan company Grandiflora in Sydney, Australia. Luckily a sample of this is on its way to me. I’m shocked and saddened that its creator had to go so soon.

My heart goes out to her family and friends.


The perfume world has lost a great member.

    i’m shocked and extremely saddened by the news! the other day i was late to post in your favorite tropical fragrances post but my choice was manoumalia, which to me is a perfect synthesis of true tropical elements. in fact, i am wearing it now, in the argentinian winter, and it transports me away from the dreariness. sandrine, from what i know, was an amazingly creative, aware and vibrant spirit…this is such a loss ūüė¶ R.I.P. sandrine, and my most sincere condolences to her family.

    She was stunningly beautiful, talented, bright, witty & fun, … She was just 44 and she had a 6 years old Illona to share her passion and talent with… But she also was a smoker. If the shock of such an hideous death could help ONE single person quit smoking…

    Very sad about Sandrine Videault’s passing, but her beautiful perfumes will live on forever keeping her memory alive with each spritz from a flacon or dab from a perfume vial.
