While making research for my lecture "1937-1963 - The Modern Age of Italian Perfumery" at Esxence 2015, I happened to meet the Master Capucci and we talked about how his first perfumes have born.
RC: I was just arrived in Paris. At that time I was living at the Ritz where you could meet almost everybody in the scene, from the shady-chic Coco Chanel to the young Hubert de Givenchy.
Capucci was already pretty renowned and only a few years before in 1956 Christian Dior spoke about him as "the best Italian fashion designer".
