'Perfume is like a love affair, you explore, try, but when you find the right one you become
utterly loyal.' - Azzi Glasser
Azzi Glasser isn't just a perfumer. Oh no.
In fact, Azzi Glasser is what is referred to as a perfume designer.
To Azzi, perfume is personality and style in a bottle.
Her bespoke creations aren't just produced for the world's top fashion designers and beauty brands, but for Hollywood actors looking to step into character. Helena Bonham Carter, Jude Law, Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp are all part of her extensive and unrivalled client list.
And now you can be too.
Azzi is releasing her back catalogue for the first time; 11 character-driven scents and a bespoke service, exclusively available at Harvey Nichols.
BESPOKE ATELIER PERFUME SERVICE
‘Having spent time together, through her extraordinary intuition and sensory skills Azzi made me a scent that I love! She has made a scent that I feel like I have always had; it is me - I have just never had it in a bottle before!’ - Jude Law
If you too would like your very own fragrance, private appointments with the famed perfumer are available to book through the new Style Concierge at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Consultations will take place in the fragrance studio at Azzi's private residence, priced at £15,000.
My fragrance compositions are all based on 'character and style' each with an artistic story and reference.
I wanted to create the ultimate finishing touch that would be totally loyal to the wearer and evoke memories for years
AZZI ON HER SCENT
Sequoia Wood is my own signature bespoke fragrance.
I wanted to release it mainly due to the incredible comments I have received over the years. The composition is layered around the sensual and deep richness of red sequoia wood, which appears in the heart of the fragrance.
It is enhanced on the top, by a slight flirtatious freshness of neroli and palmarosa with a kissable base of cedar, patchouli and oud oils - I have created this fragrance to suit the character and style of someone who portrays sensuality, creativity with edge.

AZZI ON HER FAVOURITE CLIENTS
With my personal bespoke service, I would say that I absolutely loved working with Helena Bonham Carter - we really do have fun and lots of laughs.
Noomi Rapace is another clear favourite and has become one of my closest friends over the years - her intelligence is so unique.
Johnny Depp always transports me into 'Wonderland' whenever we meet and Jude and Orlando are sublime in every sense of the word!
Having been fortunate enough to have worked with so many incredible personalities that herald their unique style, I could see there was a demand for fragrances to be more individual, with a real spice of originality.
AZZI ON BEING BESPOKE
I already have a strong waiting list for my bespoke perfumes, with the world's top fashion designers, beauty brands, Hollywood actors, musicians and artists in my portfolio, who all seem to shy away from the commercial fragrances.
There are so many fragrances in the market place to choose from that consumers find it hard to decide which fragrance actually suits them.
This is why I will be introducing 'Fragrance Stylists' at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge, who will help to match one of my eleven carefully crafted fragrance characters to suit your style and personality.
Jonas Åkerlund is a walking inspiration. Being such a fan of his incredible work and unique creative direction I was thrilled when he wanted to collaborate with me on composing a fragrance together.
