In the past 5 years I published more than 300 de articles about fashion/beauty/fragrance in romanian and international press. My 3 books and my blog were quoted in several professional journals or recent books, starting with 2007. I am member of Société Française des Parfumeurs and member of Romanian Society of Cosmetic Chemists. I studied architecture, pharmacy and later perfumery at ISIPCA Versailles. Since 2008 I teach design in a romanian School of Architecture and I lecture on fragrances and fragrance art.
